Why love lies in the heart of the beholder. My top 3 love foods

We sometimes get complacent about all those who love us. But most of the times, being loved has nothing to do with us at all. The people who love us just have a knack for loving, and chances are, they isn’t actually anything extraordinarily special about all of us after all. They just love because they can.

I may have chosen a bad time to get analytical about love. After all, it is the month of recklessly cheesy love {what other kind is there?}. So I offer my small contribution to this feeling that makes the world go round, with my top 3 love foods. No desserts please, it’s time to spice things up.
Roasted red pepper dip: It’s for the time when you’re just starting to impress or be impressed with the one you will eventually love. It’s almost a starter for lovers-to-be {recipe below}
Pepperoni pizza: Just when you’ve passed the formal stages of courting, you will find yourself in the most relaxed yet exciting phase of the relationship – friendship. That’s when a pizza date is called for. {Image source: Bloglovin.com}
Colourful cereal: And finally, when you know you are soul mates, you’d prefer being in bed and sharing a bowl of this decadent food. It’s so decadent, it’s almost like drugs for kids. No dressing up, no fuss, here is where we all want to end up with our love!

Roasted Red Pepper Dip
{Source: OvertimeCook.Com}
Ingredients: 4 red peppers
1 large onion or 3 shallots, peeled and cut in chunks
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 Tablespoons olive oil (reduce as necessary for your diet)
1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions: Preheat the oven to 425. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
Cut the peppers into quarters and remove the seeds. Place on the tray with the onion and garlic. Toss with remaining ingredients.
Bake at 425 for 45-50 minutes, tossing halfway through, until the tops of the peppers are starting to brown.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
Place all ingredients – including the oil from the pan – into a food processor. Blend for a couple of minutes until totally smooth.
Enjoy!
