Romantic Recipes

You know how they say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach? Whether your man is a health nut or has a sweet tooth, cooking him his favourite dishes will put you in his good books. (And, conversely, if he ever annoys you, just prepare him something he's not crazy about... in our household, you know things aren't rosy when it's stir fry for dinner!)

Here is a recipe I do when I want to show my husband love and deep appreciation: chocolate mousse.

250g chocolate (I use chocolate that has no vegetable oil in it)
3 egg yolks
5ml real vanilla essence
30ml orange liqueur
200ml cream

  1. Melt the chocolate.
  2. Add egg yolks, vanilla and liqueur.
  3. Stir until smooth.
  4. Beat the cream.
  5. Fold the chocolate mixture into the cream.
  6. Refrigerate.
