Lemon Garlic Salmon

Rating: 4.5 stars 124
Fresh salmon needs very little preparation. These salmon fillets are cooked in good, sweet butter with minced garlic, then sprinkled with a little lemon juice. If you'd like a little more kick and a fancy presentation, caramelize onions and serve them atop the cooked salmon.

A very moist delectable cake filled with all kinds of surprises. Has been known to "knock your socks off". For Valentines Day, cut the first piece and feed it slowly to your loved one, they will love the combination of decadent chocolate combined with cherries and whipped cream!

Dee's Sexy, Spicy, Shrimp, Sausage, and Peppers

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
This savory and spicy dish was created to tantalize my then boyfriend's (now hubby's) taste buds one Valentine's day many years ago.

Marry-Me Blueberry Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 54
I had a man propose to me after tasting this pie at a party. Yes, it's that good. The secret is my grandmother's super-flaky pie crust recipe. Best with fresh blueberries or dewberries.

Grilled Swordfish with Rosemary

This rosemary swordfish recipe uses a simple white wine marinade to make this grilled fish special. Rosemary is used in both the marinade and in the lemon-olive oil sauce that is drizzled over the fish when served.

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Rating: 4.5 stars 223
Fresh salmon fillets with lemon, white wine and a crispy pesto crust.

Cajun Compromise Catfish

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
A fast, tasty, spicy fried fish recipe which can be adjusted to suit the cook's (or diner's) preference. I call it Cajun Compromise because the spice level is the result of a compromise between my wife and I. It can be served with tartar sauce for the timid, or hot sauce for the not-so-timid. Great for appetizers or a main dish.

Men Love This Steak

Rating: 4.5 stars 265
If you are looking for a special steak for your sweetie, look no further. This takes less than thirty minutes from start to finish; less if you choose to broil instead of BBQ. Flavorful and easy, this steak is tough to beat. I serve this with brown-and-serve sourdough bread or rolls. If you're really hungry, crumble some additional bacon and add a baked potato. Add candles and a bottle of full bodied red wine (like a cabernet from the Alexander Valley) for a romantic evening.

A Bundt cake made with devil's food cake mix and instant chocolate pudding.
