We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.— Dr. Seuss.
Valentine's Day, the lovers' holiday for just the two of you. It's time to let the rest of the world fall away and embrace what brings you together. It's time to celebrate your union.
In Shakespeare's time, it became fashionable to send sentiments of love on February 14. That was the day on which two fifth-century Christians named Valentine were martyred on the same day, but in different years.
From there, as they say, the rest is history.
Today, Valentine's Day is known as a day for pulling out all the stops and spoiling your sweetheart. Rather than braving the hustle and bustle of a crowded restaurant, consider a romantic dinner for two created in your own kitchen with your own hands.
These are some of our favorite cuts for celebrating an intimate Valentine's Day in.

It’s that time of year again–the transition between summer and fall. Some days there is perfect grilling weather, while other days are chilly, rainy, or windy. It makes it a little harder to plan meals when you’re not sure if you’ll be able to grill or if you’ll want to stay indoors.
There’s a solution to this conundrum and we call it “transitional cooking.” If you select cuts and recipes that can be cooked indoors or out, your menu will be ever-flexible and you’ll never get thrown off track by the weather.
To that end, we’ve put together a list of the best 8 cuts for transitional cooking. These versatile selections can be easily adapted to an indoor or outdoor menu. Take a look–is your favorite cut on the list?

It’s said that the word pie comes from magpie, a type of bird known for collecting and hording small items. In that way, a pie can be thought of as a collection of ingredients, secreted away inside a crust.
A pie is technically a dish with a baked filling topped with a crust. The top crust is usually pastry but can be another topping, such as biscuit or mashed potato (as in a shepherd’s pie).
Traditionally a pie, whether savory or sweet, has just a top crust. However, it can have a bottom crust, as in most American-style pies. And on the other hand, in Britain a sweet filling baked in just a shallow bottom crust is called a tart.
But our interest lies in those all-in-one meals, those warm-you-to-your-toes dishes, those comfort-food favorites: savory meat pies.
