That's Amore!

Baby, it’s cold outside, but on Valentine’s Day you and your sweetie (and a few well-loved friends) can be as warm as a sunny Tuscan afternoon —thanks to the simple, robust flavors of this Italian-inspired supper menu. Set a table by the fire, nibble on warm olives and walnuts, then dig into a garlic- and fennel-scented white bean gratin and a classic tricolore salad (named for the colors of the Italian flag). And don’t forget to leave room for a tiny mascarpone-topped ginger cupcake —or two.
