"Love passes through the stomach", so sweeten it with a romantic dessert and you will conquer it forever. Our readers, who have sent, over time, recipes to [email protected] teach you what to Prepare a heart-shaped cake or muffins, frozen with strawberries or a burnt sugar cream with apples.

Ingredients for the 2 sponge cakes: 12 eggs, 12 tablespoons flour, a pinch of salt, 12 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, spices and essence. Preparation: Rub the yolks well with a pinch of salt, and beat the egg whites well with the sugar. These two compositions are mixed and the flour, spices and essence are added. In a tray greased with oil and lined with flour put half of this composition, and in the other add the 2 tablespoons of cocoa.

Put the other half in the greased and lined tray and put it in the hot oven for a maximum of 35 minutes. During this time, make the cream from: 500 ml liquid cream, 200 gr. milk chocolate and 300 gr. dark chocolate.

Break the chocolate and put liquid cream on it and simmer until it becomes a cream. Leave to cool, and then cut the sponge cakes and join the slices like this: a white slice, a cocoa one, and between them the cream and so on until you finish the two sponge cakes. With the remaining cream, coat the whole cake and then decorate it to your liking. I chose strawberries and grapes. (Daniela Butnaru)

Ingredients: Top: 6 eggs, 300 g sugar, 6 tablespoons oil, 180 g flour, 1 baking powder, 2 tablespoons full of cocoa. Preparation: Beat the egg whites hard, then gradually add the sugar, mixing until melted, add the yolks one by one, then slowly the oil and then the flour mixed and sifted with baking powder and cocoa. Bake 3 sheets (I have a special baking form for the heart or it can be cut from the round shape). Coconut cream: 3 quality white chocolates, 400 ml liquid cream, 100 g coconut.

Melt the chocolate with 200 ml of whipped cream, then cool and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, then mix and add the remaining whipped cream and coconut. Syrup the tops with chocolate syrup made from instant cocoa for children or hot chocolate in an envelope. The ornament is made of fondant. (Adriana Szerepi)

Ingredients: 500 g strawberries, 400 g yogurt, 100 ml cream, 6 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Preparation: Remove the strawberry stalks and mix them in a food processor or blender.

Add the yogurt. Beat the cream and then add it to the strawberry and yogurt composition. Then we add the honey. We also put the lemon juice, we homogenize the composition and we put it in the freezer. After a few hours in the freezer, put the ice cream in cups and serve. You can add strawberry sauce, cream, strawberries, etc. (Violet Postolache)

Ingredients: 8 eggs + 1 egg white, 1 l milk, 5 tablespoons sugar, 1 ampoule of vanilla essence, 1/2 ampoule of rum essence, 50 g raisins, 3 apples. For the burnt sugar icing: 4 tablespoons of sugar.

Preparation: Mix eggs with sugar and essences. Add milk, raisins and orange peel. Peel an apple, grate it and slice it thinly. In a double-walled pot put the 4 tablespoons of sugar over low heat. Line the entire pan with melted sugar. We put the composition of eggs and milk, and we put the apples on top. Bake for 40-50 minutes on the right heat. Leave to cool until the next day. (Bianca Raluca Panazan)

Heart muffins with cherries

Ingredients: 250 gr flour, 100 gr cherries, 150 gr sugar, 125 gr butter, 3 eggs, ½ sachet baking powder, lemon peel, a pinch of salt

Preparation: Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Separately, rub the butter with the sugar until you get a frothy cream in which you add the eggs, one by one.

Then add the flour with the baking powder and the lemon peel. Washed and pitted cherries are finely chopped and mixed into the dough. The obtained dough is put in muffin tins and baked for 15 minutes. (Silvia David)

Ingredients: 3 large pears, 500 ml rose wine, 150 g brown sugar, cinnamon, anise, cloves, ginger.

Preparation: We choose large ripe pears, but hard. We peel the pears but keep the tail. In a saucepan put the wine, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, anise and cloves.

Leave it on the fire until the sugar melts and then dip the pears in the wine. Let them boil for about 5 minutes just enough to soften a little and take over the flavors. Remove the pears on a plate and set them aside. We continue to boil the wine until it thickens and caramelizes slightly, gaining the consistency of a sauce. Pour the sauce over the pears, leave to cool and then serve. (Violet Postolache)

Fluffy hearts with cinnamon

Ingredients: 6 eggs, 6 tablespoons oil, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 sachet of vanilla sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, lemon. Preparation: Separate the egg whites from the yolks.

Beat the egg whites with the sugar, add the yolks and mix everything. Separately, quench the baking powder with lemon juice and add vanilla sugar to the composition.

Sift the flour and add a little over the composition. Pour the composition into molds, sprinkle cinnamon on top of each heart and place everything in the oven heated to 200 degrees for about 25-30 minutes, checking with a toothpick to see if they have baked. (Patricia Iordache)

The Rise of Scarface: Al Capone And Chicago

From 1924 to 1930, the city of Chicago gained a widespread reputation for lawlessness and violence. Not coincidentally, this phenomenon coincided with the reign of chief crime lord Al & # x201CScarface & # x201D Capone, who took over from his boss Johnny Torrio in 1925. (Torrio, who was seriously wounded in an assassination attempt in 1924, hadâ & # x201Cretired & # x201D to Brooklyn.) Prohibition, ushered in by the passage of the 18th Amendment in 1920, had greatly increased the earnings of America & # x2019s gangsters through bootlegging (the illegal manufacture and sale of alcohol) and speakeasies (illicit drinking establishments), as well as gambling and prostitution. Caponeâ & # x20AC; & # x2122; s income from these activities was estimated at some $ 60 million a year his net worth in 1927 was around $ 100 million.

Did you know? George & quotBugs & quot Moran was on his way to the garage in Chicago at the time of the St. George. Valentine & aposs Day Massacre he missed getting killed by minutes. A few days later, he told reporters & quotOnly Capone kills like that. & Quot Reached at his Florida home for comment on the murders, Capone offered his own opinion: & quotThe only man who kills like that is Bugs Moran. & Quot

Over the years, Al Capone consolidated control over most of Chicagoâ & # x20AC; & # x2122; s crime rackets by ruthlessly gunning down his rivals. In 1924, authorities counted some 16 gang-related murders this brand of slaying continued until 1929, reaching a high of 64 murders in one year during that time. Federal authorities, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, had much less jurisdiction than they have today, and did not include Chicagoâ & # x20AC; & # x2122; s gang-related activity.


While the history of Valentine's Day is sometimes debated, it clearly links back to a Catholic saint named St. Valentine.

The problem is there are actually three St. Valentine's - one a priest, one a bishop, and little is known about the third. All were martyrs.

In 469 A.D., Pope Gelasius declared Feb. 14 a day to honor St. Valentine, one of these three men.

One legend says that a Roman emperor banned soldiers from marrying in the third century, but St. Valentine took issue with this. He became an advocate for soldiers and was executed as a result of his outspokenness.

Another legend says St. Valentine was executed for his beliefs in Christianity and just before he died, he left a farewell note for a loved one and signed it "From Your Valentine."

A conventional and widely accepted belief about the holiday itself is that Valentine’s Day grew out of a Middle Ages tradition of celebrating Feb. 14 as the day "the birds began to pair."

History.com notes that February has long been associated with being a month of love, and Feb. 15 was celebrated in ancient times as a fertility festival.

While sending cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts is traditional in the UK, Valentine's Day has various regional customs. In Norfolk, a character called ‘Jack’ Valentine knocks on the back door of houses leaving sweets and presents for children. Although he was leaving treats, many children were scared of this mystical person. In Wales, many people celebrate Dydd Santes Dwynwen (St Dwynwen's Day) on January 25 instead of or as well as St Valentine's Day. The day commemorates St Dwynwen, the patron saint of Welsh lovers. In France, a traditionally Catholic country, Valentine's Day is known simply as "Saint Valentin", and is celebrated in much the same way as other western countries. In Spain Valentine's Day is known as "San Valentín" and is celebrated the same way as in the UK, although in Catalonia it is largely superseded by similar festivities of rose and / or book giving on La Diada de Sant Jordi (Saint George's Day) . In Portugal it's more commonly referred to as "Dia dos Namorados" (Boy / Girlfriend's Day).

In Slovenia, a proverb says that "St. Valentine brings the keys of roots," so on February 14, plants and flowers start to grow. Valentine's Day has been celebrated as the day when the first work in the vineyards and in the fields begins. It is also said that birds propose to each other or marry on that day. Nevertheless, it has only recently been celebrated as the day of love. The day of love is traditionally March 12, the St. Gregory's day. Another proverb says "Valentin - prvi spomladin" ("Valentine & # 8212 first saint of spring"), as in some places (especially White Carniola) Saint Valentine marks the beginning of spring.

Valentine's Day is called Sevgililer Günü in Turkey, which translates into "Sweethearts' Day".

According to Jewish tradition the 15th day of the month of Av - Tu B'Av (usually late August) is the festival of love. In ancient times girls would wear white dresses and dance in the vineyards, where the boys would be waiting for them (Mishna Taanith end of Chapter 4). In modern Israeli culture this is a popular day to pronounce love, propose marriage and give gifts like cards or flowers.

In some Southamerican countries Valentine's Day is known as "Día del Amor y la Amistad" (Day of Love and Friendship). For example Mexico, [37] Costa Rica, [38] Ecuador, [39] and El Salvador. Although it is similar to the United States' version in many ways, it is also common to see people do "acts of appreciation" for their friends.

In Guatemala it is known as the "Día del Cariño" (Day of the Affection). [40]

In Brazil, the Valentine's Day (lit. "Day of the Enamored", or "Boyfriends '/ Girlfriends' Day") is celebrated on June 12, when couples exchange gifts, chocolates, cards and flower bouquets. This day was chosen probably because it is the day before the Festa junina & # 8217s Saint Anthony's day, known there as the marriage saint, when traditionally many single women perform popular rituals, called sympathy, in order to find a good husband or boyfriend. The February 14's Valentine's Day is not celebrated at all, mainly for cultural and commercial reasons, since it usually falls too little before or after Carnival, a major floating holiday in Brazil & # 8212 long regarded as a holiday of sex and debauchery by many in the country [41] & # 8212 that can fall anywhere from early February to early March.

In Venezuela, in 2009, President Hugo Chavez said in a meeting to his supporters for the upcoming referendum vote on February 15, that "since on the 14th, there will be no time of doing nothing, nothing or next to nothing. Maybe a little kiss or something very superficial ", he recommended people to celebrate a week of love after the referendum vote. [42]

In most of South America the Day of love and friendship (lit. "Love and Friendship Day") and the Secret friend ("Secret friend") are quite popular and usually celebrated together on the 14th of February (one exception is Colombia, where it is celebrated every third Saturday of September). The latter consists of randomly assigning to each participant a recipient who is to be given an anonymous gift (similar to the Christmas tradition of Secret Santa).

Thanks to a concentrated marketing effort, Valentine's Day is celebrated in some Asian countries with Singaporeans, Chinese and South Koreans spending the most money on Valentine's gifts. [43]

In Japan, in 1960, Morinaga, one of the largest Japanese confectionery companies, originated the present custom that only women give chocolates to men. In particular, office ladies give chocolate to their co-workers. One month later, on March 14, White Day was created by the Japanese National Confectionery Industry Association as a "reply day", where men are expected to return the favor to those who gave them chocolates on Valentine's Day. Unlike western countries, gifts such as candies, flowers, or dinner dates are uncommon. Many women feel obliged to give chocolates to all male co-workers, except when the 14th falls on a Sunday, a holiday. This is known as giri-choko (義理チョコ), from giri ("obligation") and choko, ("chocolate"), with unpopular co-workers receiving only "ultra-obligatory" chō-giri choko cheap chocolate. This contrasts with honmei-choko (本命チョコ, Favorite chocolate) chocolate given to a loved one. Friends, especially girls, may exchange chocolate referred to as tomo-choko (友チョコ) from tomo meaning "friend". [ 44 ] In South Korea, women give chocolate to men on February 14, and men give non-chocolate candy to women on March 14 (White Day). On April 14 (Black Day), those who did not receive anything on the 14th of Feb or March go to a Chinese restaurant to eat black noodles (자장면 jajangmyeon) and "mourn" their single life. Koreans also celebrate Pepero Day on November 11, when young couples give each other Pepero cookies. The date '11/11' is intended to resemble the long shape of the cookie. The 14th of every month marks a love-related day in Korea, although most of them are obscure. From January to December: Candle Day, Valentine's Day, White Day, Black Day, Rose Day, Kiss Day, Silver Day, Green Day, Music Day, Wine Day, Movie Day, and Hug Day. [ 45 ] In China, the common situation is the man gives chocolate, flowers or both to the woman that he loves. In Chinese, Valentine's Day is called (simplified Chinese: 情人节 traditional Chinese: 情人節 pinyin: qíng rén jié).

In the Philippines, Valentine's Day is called "Araw ng mga Puso" or "Hearts Day". It is usually marked by a steep increase in the prices of flowers.

Similar Asian traditions

In Chinese culture, there is an older observance related to lovers, called "The Night of Sevens" (Chinese: 七夕 pinyin: Qi Xi). According to the legend, the Cowherd star and the Weaver Maid star are normally separated by the milky way (silvery river) but are allowed to meet by crossing it on the 7th day of the 7th month of the Chinese calendar.

In Japan, a slightly different version of 七夕 called Tanabata is celebrated, on July 7 (Gregorian calendar. The celebration is not related to St. Valentine's Day.

Middle East

In Iran, the Sepandarmazgan, or Esfandegan, is an age-old traditional celebration of love, friendship and Earth. It has been progressively forgotten in favour of the Western celebration of Valentine's Day. The Association of Iran's Cultural and Natural Phenomena has been trying since 2006 to make Sepandarmazgan a national holiday on 17 February, in order to replace the Western holiday. [ 46 ]


In India, in past Valentine's Day has been explicitly discouraged by some of the Hindu fundamentalists, mainly the Shiv Sena, the Bajrang Dal and the Vishva Hindu Parishad. [ 47 ] [ 48 ] Since 2001 there has been each year violent clashes between shopkeepers dealing in Valentine related items and Shiv Sena die-hards, who oppose it as "cultural pollution from the west". [ 47 ] [ 49 ] Especially in Mumbai and surrounding areas Bal Thackeray and others sent out signals before the day warning people not to have anything to do with Valentine. [ 50 ] Those who violate this are dealt with harshly by baton-holding brigands of Shiv Sena who lurk in public places especially parks, chasing young people holding hands and others suspected to be lovers. In many parts of south India couples who are found in parks and other public places are immediately forced to marry on the spot by the Shiv Sena and other similar activists.

The Middle East

Saudi Arabia

In Saudi Arabia, in 2002 and 2008, religious police banned the sale of all Valentine's Day items, telling shop workers to remove any red items, as the day is considered a Christian holiday. [ 49 ] [ 51 ] In 2008 this ban created a black market of roses and wrapping paper. [ 51 ]


The Jamaat-e-Islami political party has called for the banning of the holiday, and has called it "a shameful day. The people in the West are just fulfilling and satisfying their sex thirst." They claim that the holiday is an insult to Islam. [ 52 ] [ 48 ] Despite this, the celebration is increasingly popular [ 48 ] and the florist shops expect to sell great amount of flowers, specially red roses. [ 53 ]
