Anti-Valentine’s Day: Nadia G. Plans a Girls’ Night In

Did you just suffer a nasty break-up? Are you down on love? Or perhaps you just can’t stand all those red hearts and flowers? Nadia G. — the fiercest chef around — has the perfect anti-Valentine’s Day plan for those dodging Cupid’s arrows: a girls’ night in, complete with tasty eats. Save your formal wear for another fest; this pajama poker party is all about comfy and cool.

Bottom's up, girls!

To start things off, pour your gals a Cardamom Blood Orange Mojito with Basil. No sugar coating things, here — this cocktail is tangy, spiced and nice over ice.

Fill your bellies (and hearts) with risotto. Creamy, creamy risotto.

For a main course, creamy, rich Gorgonzola and Pesto Risotto will steal everyone’s attention away from the poker chips. Feel free to have seconds (or thirds) — you’re wearing pants with an elastic waistband, after all.

Serve up cupcakes with sass.

Moving on to dessert, convert a classic dish — tiramisu — into cupcakes with attitude (and espresso-mascarpone frosting). The sugar rush will distract you from a bad hand or your dwindling loot.

Bacon +Chocolate + Skulls

And for the anti-Valentine’s finale (a take-home gift, or a second dessert, if appetite allows), put a devilish spin on the holiday’s main sweet by adding crumbled bacon to melted chocolate, and then pouring the mixture into skull-shaped molds. (They really have some bite.)

Bacon Chocolates
