Fire up the grill and start out the night with two of the best known aphrodisiacs: Oysters and Tequila. Then, when the time is right, serve up a perfectly grilled Filet Mignon complimented by roasted asparagus and served with a good Merlot or Syrah/Shiraz. Finally, wind the night down and snuggle up close while you both enjoy creamy Valentine Night Strawberries.

Note: Use pecans instead of walnuts because, well, this is Texas! Go the extra mile and use these candied pecans.

If you’re looking to impress that special someone, look no further. Ease into the night with a simple strawberry and pecan laden spinach salad. Warm up with Bacon-Wrapped Chicken with Honey-Roasted Belgian Endives and Parsnips. Pair this dish with Pinot Noir. Then, let him or her know how much you care for them with a Red Velvet Cheesecake.

Looking to reignite the flames of desire? Peak some interest with a Tomato Basil Soup. Then, spice things up a bit with Char-Grilled Chili Shrimp and Cheese Grits with Corn Pudding on the side. Pair this meal with a Riesling to bring out those zesty flavors! Finally, when she (or he) can’t take any more, serve up Super Easy Ooey Gooey Brownies with added chilies and a scoop of vanilla ice cream to cool things off a bit.
