Winner Winner Valentine's Dinner!

Looks as if I'm not the only one who enjoys a good romantic movie. We have our winners of the Valentine's Giveaway. Who knew you were so smart (and quick!).

Matching the film with the corresponding quotation, here are the correct answers:

1. The English Patient
    •    d) The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor touched, but are felt in the heart.
2.   Gone With the Wind
    •    j) You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.
3.   The Notebook
    •    f) The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds and that's what you've given me.
4.   Moulin Rouge
    •    h) Love? Above all things I believe in love! Love is like oxygen! Love is a many splendored thing, love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love.
5.   Don Juan DeMarco
    •    i) There are only four questions of value in life: What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made of?  What is worth living for? What is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.
6.   Titanic
    •    b) Promise me you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless.
7.   Love Story
    •    c) What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach, the Beatles, and me?
8.   When Harry Met Sally
    •    e) I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
9.   City of Angels
    •    a) I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss from her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it.
10. Casablanca
    •    g) Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time.

The first person to answer all 10 correctly was Lauren from Ginger Is The New Pink:
So fun!  I already have Mathew's book, so I am hoping for 2nd or 3rd!
a. 9 City of Angels
b. 6 Titanic
c. 7 Love Story
d. 1 The English Patient
e. 8 When Harry Met Sally
f. 3 The Notebook (my fav)
g. 10 Casablance
h. 4 Moulan Rouge
i. 5 Don Juan Demarco
j. 2 Gone with the wind
The first place prize is a copy of Matthew Kenney's Entertaining In The Raw, but since Lauren already owns this delicious book of recipes and stated that she was hoping to win one of the magazines, we'll do a switcheroo. So Lauren, you have won the March issue of Yoga Journal.

That means that the next person to match all correctly is the lucky winner of Entertaining In The Raw, and that lucky lady is Nancy Broderick:

Thank you to all who entered. I hope you had fun playing, and I'd like to wish every one of my readers a Happy Valentine's Day, from my heart to yours. Je T'Adore!

I made some raw chocolate love just for you. What's V-Day without Chocolate Covered Strawberries? Enjoy!

1/8 tsp sea salt
1 pound fresh strawberries** 

1. While you're washing your strawberries and prepping your work area, place the jar of coconut oil in a bowl of warm water to liquify.

2. Line a large tray with parchment.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the cacao powder, agave, melted coconut oil and salt. Combine well until smooth.

4. Holding the strawberries by the stem, dip each into the chocolate sauce, placing them on the tray as you go. Place the tray in the freezer for 15 minutes before serving.

**Be a smart shopper: always buy organic strawberries, due to the high levels of pesticides on conventionally grown.

What's on your Valentine's Day agenda?
