What are you doing for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day? Skip the chocolate hearts, gas station roses, and cheesy balloons. If you really want to make the night special, make your valentine dinner!

In this week’s Foodie Friday video, my K9 sous chef, Henry, and I will show you how to make a delicious and elegant meal for less than the cost of a good bottle of wine. I call it my "Sweetheart Surf and Turf." Simple and delicious, this meal will impress with bold flavors and great plate appeal.
