You’re Invited! Twelve Days of Valentine’s with The Newlywed Cookbook

What if there were 12 days of Valentine’s? Not twelve days of cloying cards and Hallmark moments. But 12 days of feasting. Twelve days of endless chocolate and bubbly, of slow celebrations over a plate of Multigrain Pancakes with Chocolate Shavings or Lamb Chops over Melted Polenta.

Starting on Feb 2nd, The Newlywed Cookbook started on a 12-day tour to bring exactly those delicious things to your home and your table. Twelve food writers, bloggers, and I will be bringing you stories of food and love, and one delicious recipe from The Newlywed Cookbook each, to make your Valentine’s Day a little more delicious.

The menu, if I do say so myself, is quite delightful, and includes all the major Valentine’s food groups, like Oatmeal Yogurt Pancakes with Blackberry Crush, Ricotta Silver Dollars, Roasted Beets with Ricotta and Pistachios, Two-For-Two Cheese Soufflé, Cast Iron Skillet Steak, Dowry Dinner Rolls and Olive Oil Cake with Tangerine Marmalade, among others.

We invite you to come taste these recipes and hear the stories of these talented writers and friends.
Dorie Greenspan ~ Diary of a Locavore ~ Aida Mollenkamp ~ Just a Little Organic ~ E.A.T. Mom’s Kitchen Handbook ~ Spoonful of Cake ~ Crumbs on My Keyboard ~ Farmhouse ~ Lucid Food ~ Dessert-o-licious ~ Dallas Food Nerd ~ A Year in the Life of June Cleaver ~ Cherryspoon ~ Healthy & Happy Hour

Consider it practice for the big day, February 14th, a little something to get you in the mood. And here’s something to really get you in the mood. Each of these writers will be giving away a copy of The Newlywed Cookbook on their blogs (courtesy of Chronicle Books) to one reader, to inspire some loving feasts in your home. Kindly leave us a comment and tell us your story of food and love for your chance to win.

Our Valentine’s feast starts here on my blog, Edible Living, with a luscious Bittersweet Chocolate Tart with Smoked Sea Salt. Come one, come all. May your hearts and tables be filled.

    I have this on my Wedding Registry (along with three other Chronicle cookbooks)! Hopefully I win instead tho 😉

    Neither of us are particularly inspired cooks 100% of the time, but you know it's true love when we're 100% inspired eaters of the other's cooking, no matter how weird it can be. My hubby-to-be and I would have weekly dinners with his brother, sharing the family experience of gathering around a table. Food is love, and love is food.

    I love making special Valentine's food and I just wrote about how to make a Valentine's "heart-shaped" pizza on my blog

    I think I married my husband, because he is such a good cook. We have been married quite a while so it really shows love when you take the time to make a nice meal for your family.
