I love Valentine’s day and although we don’t go out for dinner as it can be kind of crazy in the restaurants, I always make a special meal. Celebrations of the heart are important! My husband does not like chocolate so I made a pan of super rich fudgy brownies yesterday to share with friends (recipe to follow). This is a simple menu that will be delicious!!

Sriracha aioli (Sriracha is an asian hot sauce that is delicious!)
Roasted sweet potato
