Weekly Bits: Love Is in the Air

Planning to enjoy Valentine's dinner at home? Make sure to check out our readers' cooking tips for a romantic veggie side dish. Plus, treat your heart -- and your tastebuds -- with creamy, buttery avocado.

"Try drizzling asparagus with extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of course sea salt, then either pan fry or broil until desired tenderness is achieved." --Gina

"Asparagus is also great sauteed with mushrooms or sliced almonds." --Kay

In In Season: Avocados we asked your favorite way to eat them:

"As a substitute for mayo on sandwiches. That way I can still use them when they start to turn brown." --Sonya, via Facebook

"Cut up with red onion, Roma tomato and feta cheese with an Italian vinaigrette drizzle. They're also wonderful sliced onto BLTs!" --Brian, via Facebook

"I love avocado on toast with a sprinkle of garlic salt!" --Tracey, via Facebook
