Since Valentine’s is next month, what will everyone do for their s/o or crush?

You have NO IDEA how excited I was to answer this ask!

Korekiyo Shinguuji

Maki Harukawa

  • doesn’t really,,,
  • understand what shes supposed to be doing??

  • and a nice dinner it is indeed.
  • a wallet emptying dinner.
  • but she looked so cute and so happy to be spending a night out with you…

  • where are you going, exactly??
  • he drives you to the top of a hill??
  • but then you see it.

  • it’s incredibly romantic…he planned all this just for you??
  • and under the stars??
  • he spends all night telling you how much he loves you and how beautiful you are, and how each star reminds him of your eyes.
  • you laugh and joke about how cheesy that is, but kiss him anyway.

from left to right: Marc Bolan, Bill Legend, Mickey Finn, Josephine Visconti (Tony’s Mom), Liz Hartley (Tony’s girlfriend at the time), and Steve Currie, with (I assume) Tony Visconti taking the photo. They had just found out Hot Love had gone to #1 in the UK, so Josephine Visconti cooked a big Italian dinner and decorated a chocolate cake with almonds spelling Hot Love to celebrate the occasion. Marc was vegetarian so he avoided the meatballs.

Peri Peri BBQ Wings

Ingredients for Wings

2 lb chicken wings, separated into drums and flats

Seasoning blend (you may or may not use all of it) - 5 tbsp of each: smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, granulated garlic, granulated onion, Indian red pepper, hot paprika, cumin + 2 tbsp kosher salt, + 1 tbsp baking powder

Ingredients for Sauce

½ cup Honey Chipotle barbecue sauce (purchased from Williams-Sonoma)

¼ cup Peri Peri sauce

3 tbsp sweet chili 

2 tsp raw honey 

½ apple cider vinegar 

Dash salt 

Directions 

Preheat the oven  to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.

Clean and completely dry your chicken wings using paper towels. 

In a large bowl, toss your chicken wings into the coating mixture and ensure that each wing is evenly coated. 

Using a baking sheet (preferably with a wire rack), place the chicken wings in a single layer and cook for 20 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 15 minutes. 

After the last 15 minutes, remove the wings from the oven, turn on your oven’s broiler, brush the chicken wings with the sauce and broil for 1-2 minutes until caramelized. 

Repeat on the opposite side of the wings. 

NOTE: using a wire rack helps with the air circulation and ensures that the entire wing gets crispy. 

Remove from the oven, garnish with fresh cilantro, and serve. 

Enjoy!

One pot red lentil soup

I recently concocted a similar recipe using several source recipes online, and though I LOVE chopping veggies, I realized I could simplify this with pre-chopped ingredients and it would be super fast and easy (and DELICIOUS) to make. Red lentils are yummy, nutritious, and don’t need to be soaked beforehand because they’re so tiny!

Servings: About 5 depending on how hungry you are!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 3 cups chicken OR vegetable broth
  • Frozen diced veggies (I recommend anything with carrots, celery, and most definitely onions)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp pre-chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp cumin (or to taste)
  • Small dash of paprika
  • Salt if needed (the broth will add salt so give it a taste test first)
  • OPTIONAL: Olive oil
  • OPTIONAL: 1 serrano pepper, halved and de-seeded (may want to use gloves for this as it can make your skin hot hot hot), this makes the soup just a bit spicy but it’s not necessary!

SUPER EASY DIRECTIONS:

Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Cook on medium heat for ten minutes.

OPTIONAL, SLIGHTLY LESS EASY (BUT MAKES IT MORE DELICIOUS) DIRECTIONS:

Sautee veggies and garlic in olive oil in a large pot for about five minutes. This will add a lot of flavor to the veg.

Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil, and cook on medium heat for ten minutes.
