Try these favorite dishes to make you fall in love all over again.
When my husband and I were dating some 20 years ago, I decided to try to impress him with a home-cooked meal for Valentine’s Day. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?

Or love can bud on the shelves of a hobby shop where two people share a passion for history and collecting. It also often peeks its head out of flower bouquets or can spring up in an ice cream shop. Love can also swirl amid everyday errands and can even slip between raindrops. Love. It’s the most unexpected of visitors that’s also the most welcome. It enters into the ordinariness of everyday life, but brings with it extraordinary magic. To celebrate one of the calendar’s most love-filled days, these Northville couples share their tales of how and when Cupid shot his arrow into their lives and how and why the winged cherub seems to still be…
