Romantic Valentine’s Day Meal for Under $20

s the name of the game. HOWEVER—single or not, I’m still going to make myself an amazing meal, regardless of my relationship status. This year I challenged myself to make a fancy meal for under $20, and with a few easy tricks, you’ll have an expensive looking meal that doesn’t break the bank!

Pear and Brie Tart

Food with Friends: Apple Pie Stuffed French Toast

Today I show Kristin, beloved member of the Eitan Productions team and my personal assistant, how to make the most epic French toast ever! We start by simmering sweet and tart apples in warming spices to create the perfect filling, then stuff it inside of soft challah. It’s dipped in a creamy custard and griddled until GBAD (golden brown and delicious!), and served with a spiced whipped cream. Get ready to throw out any other French toast recipe!

Food with Friends: Duck à l’Orange

Today the tables have turned yet again! My culinary producer, Rachel Dolfi (@rachelanndolfi), asks me to make a French classic—Duck à l’Orange (recipe adapted from Daniel Gritzer’s Duck à l’Orange). Crispy, crunchy roast duck is paired with a sweet and lightly sour orange sauce, using bitter oranges.
