With Valentine's Day less than a week away, you may be wondering how you can impress your sweetheart this year. While you could take her out for a movie or shower her with flowers and chocolate, whipping up a home-cooked meal for your sweetie is sure to put a smile on her face.
If you're not a cooking aficionado, a shrimp scampi recipe may be the perfect plan to wow your significant other. According to FoodNetwork.com, all you really need is one pound each of jumbo shrimp and linguini, garlic, shallots, olive oil, butter, white wine, lemon and spices for taste.
After cooking the pasta al dente, combine the butter, shallots and garlic and then add the shrimp until they turn pink. Add the pasta, shrimp and a touch of parsley to the pan and stir it all together. With a nice bottle of wine and a few lit candles, you will easily set the bar for future Valentine's Days.
After the holiday is over, you can stay on your cooking kick by investing in a few Gerhards appliances. They can dramatically improve your culinary ability and may just improve the energy-efficiency of your home.
