We just hosted our Second Annual Valentine's Day Aphrodisiac Tasting Party, with dishes containing a variety of suggested aphrodisiacs:  Strawberries, Figs, Pine Nuts, Chocolate, Asparagus, and Wine, to name a few.  I had no idea mascarpone cheese has only two ingredients, whipping cream and lemon juice, and is so simple to make at home.  Just pipe a little star onto tasting spoons and add a slice of strawberry marinated in good balsamic vinegar.  Please stop by There's a Newf in My Soup for the complete party recap and links to the recipes that inspired us!
