You have one day left till Valentine’s Day and still no idea what to get your sweetie?

 

A fancy gift?

 

Not on your budget.

 

Home cooked meal?

 

You don’t know how to boil water.

 

Don’t panic. Follow my instructions:

 

1. Peruse the recipes below and figure out which one (or two, or three) your Valentine would like most. 

 

2. Make a run to the liquor store if there’s anything here you don’t have in stock at home (heads up for Valentines on a budget—most Hiram Walker products are priced under $15—great deal!).
