5 Foods That Will Love You Unconditionally on Valentine's Day

A great love might give you comfort but, if we're being really honest, a lifetime of great meals is a close second in our books.


A great love might give you comfort but, if we're being really honest, a lifetime of great meals is a close second in our books. Whether you're on the outs with your would-be Valentine or, perhaps, cheesy casseroles speak your language more than a box of store-bought chocolates ever could, these are the recipes that whisper the language of love to us.

A steadfast partner might always be there to catch your fall, but we'd argue that these plush, prosciutto-filled  Mozzarella Pillows will be there to give you a soft landing too.

Being head-over-heels might have you all warm and fuzzy, but that's not the only thing that can do the job. This  Meatloaf Lasagna is covered by a cozy blanket of lasagna noodles, and it'll warm you to your core.
