Many of you are likely planning to celebrate Cupid's day of love this weekend with a home cooked brunch or breakfast in bed. We whipped up two recipes so packed with romance-inducing foods, your Valentine won't know what hit 'em. The full list of aphrodisiacs featured today:  Eggs, basil, asparagus, avocado, walnuts, strawberries, pomegranate, chocolate, vanilla, and honey. YUM!

First up, we've got the savory side of things: Simple Greens + Eggs on Toast.

Ingredients (*denotes aphrodisiac)

– 2 pieces of toast

– 2 eggs*

– 4-6 asparagus spears*

– arugula

– 1 avocado*

– 1 cup basil, packed*

– 1/3 cup walnuts*

– 1/3 & 1 tbsp gruyere (divided)

– olive oil

– salt and pepper to taste

First, toast your bread! Next, cut up your asparagus. Reserve asparagus heads and boil the stalks for 5 minutes.

Add the asparagus heads for the last minute of boiling. Drain and set aside.

For the pesto, combine basil, walnuts, 1/3 cup gruyere and olive oil in a food processor. This should be a thicker consistency than the kind of pesto you'd use for pasta, and the flavor packs a punch.

Toss 2 handfuls of arugula with salt, pepper, and a drop of olive oil.

Fry up two eggs over easy and place on toast. Sprinkle the remaining gruyere on each egg.

Add avocado, asparagus, asparagus, pesto and serve. We used a basil leaf and gruyere shaving for garnish.

Next, for your sweet tooth: the Berry Ombre Jar.

Ingredients (*denotes aphrodisiac)

– strawberries*

– raspberries

– ricotta

– pomegranate juice*

– honey*

– a drop of vanilla*

– brown sugar

– chocolate chips or nutella (or both!)*

– graham cracker crumbs (any kind of cookie crumb will do)

– optional: hot pink sprinkles

For the crust at the bottom, we had some leftover graham crumbs from our Grammy Grahams. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a saucepan, add 2 tsp brown sugar, and mix in graham crumbs. Line the bottom of each jar with crumbs and set aside.

Place raspberries in a bowl.

Add 1/2 teaspoon nutella and 2 tbsp chocolate chips and start mashing. Raspberries turn into a jelly-ish form pretty quickly.

Layer your raspberry mixture onto the graham cracker layer.

The next layer is strawberries, plain and simple. Slice thinly and layer on.

For the pink portion of your ombre gradient, time for some watermelon. Dice into small squares and layer on.

Last, we have pomegranate ricotta "frosting." Whip 1 1/2 tbsp pomegranate juice with 1/3 cup of ricotta. Add more ricotta if the consistency is too runny. Add a drop of vanilla and a bit of honey and mix together. Top the watermelon layer with frosting, add sprinkles, and you're done!
