First Comes Love, Then Comes Links: 2/10/11

E.E. Cummings Valentine from poets.org

Anna-Marie, here, with some hearts-inspired inspiration and some ideas for a romantic, sustainable Valentine’s Day.

Love Food

Recipes for historically aphrodisiac foods from almonds to avocados. Placebo effect? Maybe, but who cares? Imagine a romantic meal in or a wedding menu based entirely on foods meant to stir the passions.

Dagoba Organic Chocolate

Flavors like lavender blueberry, “roseberry” (raspberries and rose hips), and mint aren’t the only sweet thing about this Ashland, Oregon-based company: they’re also committed to full circle sustainability. I’m looking forward to incorporating their “xocolatl” bar (cacao nibs and chilies) into a ganache.

10 Surprising Health Benefits of Sex

Like we needed another reason, but here are ten good-to-know ones.

20 Organic Wines Under $20 and 5 Eco-Friendly Wines $25 and Under

Considering cancelling the reservation and opening a bottle for a night in? Try one from a vineyard with sustainable growing practices, and you might find a new favorite (not to mention cut down on red wine headaches).

Poetry Valentines

Greet friends and loved ones with a few lines of E.E. Cummings, Emily Dickinson, or Andrew Marvell.

Valentine’s Day Big Day

An adorable wedding featuring vintage valentines and a visit from Cupid.

Wishing you all a lovely Valentine's weekend!


When Anna-Marie isn’t searching the blogs, she’s writing romance stories, cooking for her wife, or freelancing as a cake decorator and floral designer.

I love these ideas, Anna-Marie! Matt and I are terrible at planning anything particularly romantic or original for Valentine's Day. We usually go the pseudo-ironic route and order a heart-shaped pizza from Papa John's. Pathetic!

Hold up, there's such a thing as a heart-shaped pizza? How did I not know this?
