Valentine’s Day is just days away, and if you’re suddenly experiencing an uh-oh moment at that realization, we have just the advice for you. It’s surely not too late to pick up a bottle of Champagne for you and your bae to share, but if you want to up the romantic ante this year, look no further than a decadent dessert of chocolate. Brownies are a tried-and-true classic, as they’re easy to make and loaded with rich chocolatey flavor. But they’re also somewhat divisive. If you’re a brownie fanatic, you’ll likely land in one of three camps when it comes to preferred brownie texture — chewy, cakey and fudgy — and it’s not likely you can be convinced that another one is better. And that’s OK, because on this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts introduced a trio of recipes for brownie lovers of all kinds. Read on below to learn tips for turning out chewy, cakey and fudgy brownies, then check out all of the chocolate-focused recipes from the show.

A great love might give you comfort but, if we’re being really honest, a lifetime of great meals is a close second in our books. Whether you’re on the outs with your would-be Valentine or, perhaps, cheesy casseroles speak your language more than a box of store-bought chocolates ever could, these are the recipes that whisper the language of love to us.
A steadfast partner might always be there to catch your fall, but we’d argue that these plush, prosciutto-filled Mozzarella Pillows will be there to give you a soft landing too.

We’ve rounded up the most aww-inducing moments of the bunch, so grab a box of chocolates and join us with happy sobs.
Ina and Jeffrey
If there are two people more in love than Ina Garten and her husband, Jeffrey, we’re hard pressed to find them. These two met in 1964, and they’ve been married for nearly five decades. Recently they revealed to Food Network Magazine the story of their earliest days together — they’re every bit as adorable as you’d imagine, with memories of love letters galore — and how Ina prepared impressive meals on the go as she and Jeffrey traveled throughout Paris with little money to their name.

Our biggest chocolate cravings often come as emergencies — need-it-now moments that just can’t be stopped. Before you tear into another chocolate bar with abandon or resort to the freezer-burnt pint in your stash, know that it’s possible to whip up full-fledged chocolate desserts a lot faster than you might think. These are a few of our favorite quick fixes.
Peeling open a store-bought pudding cup might be your fastest option, but Ree Drummond’s homemade Chocolate Pudding is your best. This rich and creamy dessert just takes 15 minutes to make, and it’s ready to be eaten as soon as it’s done cooking — or after some time in the fridge if you prefer it chilled.

If you’re like me, when your Valentine’s Day plans involve not only your spouse but also your four small kids, you improvise. You adjust. You balance romantic ideas with one simple question: How long will it take? Because kids aren’t keen on long, drawn-out meals, of course. These are my favorite ideas for a doable meal that’s still as special as ever.
Dinners to Delight
Salmon Baked in Foil
Follow the simple steps for Giada De Laurentiis’ salmon and you’ll have an elegant (and healthy) dinner on the table in a hurry.
You know those nights when you and your friends are deciding on a restaurant — be it somewhere you’d go to or order from — and everyone has a different opinion of the perfect choice? One person’s craving a burger, another is in the mood for Chinese food, and a third is into something upscale or adventurous?
Now, the lucky residents of Helsinki, Finland, won’t have to decide. American Express and Wolt, a delivery service in the city, have partnered to launch a pop-up restaurant, called Take In, that allows every person at a table to order from the restaurant he or she chooses and still sit and eat together.
