HEARTy Plates: Instead of traditional heart-shaped Sugar Cookies this Valentine’s Day, treat your sweetie to a decadent dinner of braised Vermont beef heart ravioli or duck heart tartare next Monday night. That’s right, this Valentine’s Day restaurants across the country will serve up more than just heartfelt portions of oysters and chocolate cake. Supper in Philly and Incanto in San Francisco are among those restaurants featuring blue plate organ specials on their Valentine’s Day menus. In our opinion, however, if you want to keep your Valentine around until spring, you better stick with flowers and chocolates.  []

Introducing: Hand-Held Lasagna: Just when you think we’ve already transformed all possible foods into their bite-sized counterparts (I mean, how can you top Edy’s Dibs?), an LA catering company is cooking up Lasagna Cupcakes. These savory treats aren’t frosted but rather filled with classic Italian cheeses, vegetables, and béchamel sauce. Matt Poley, a partner in Heirloom-LA, says that “As long as they aren’t scalding hot, you can eat them with your hands. In fact, we encourage it. You might get some spillage, but not a lot.” []

Every Day is Meatless Monday: Last February, one self-proclaimed “hard-core omnivore” took the plunge – into veganism. Oregonian Grant Butler initially committed to a one-month challenge, but one year later, he is still embracing his protein-packed vegan recipes. Find out here how he fared during a trip to his meat-loving hometown outside of Kansas City, MO. And as Butler says, “No meat, no eggs, no dairy? Turns out it’s no problem.” []

Let’s Hear it for the Boys: The New York Post is reporting that thanks to Food Network’s popularity and the current economic climate, more NYC men are donning chef hats in their own kitchens. Some local women are finding themselves won-over by these eligible foodies, what with their ultra-fierce knife skills and culinary creativity. Definitely can’t argue with that!  [ via]

    I've heard about the lasagna cupcakes and they sound delicious!! On the not so delicious side, my friend just cooked a deer heart in my apartment the other day (while I made lasagna). I didn't know that was a trend these days, but I didn't take part in the eating festivities…

  9. Good post, its was increasingly frustrating at a start of a new SEO campaign at the company I work for trying to explain reasons for us not to copy our competitors in their SEO “link building” campaigns luckily by using proper method and ensuring the links we got were because of our superior content we quickly gained top rankings without any need for this “quick win” SEO.
