We have our winners!

Suzanne Canfield's Be My Valentine Napoleons took top honors in our Show the Love Recipe Contest. Puff pastry, mascarpone cheese, cranberry-orange-pecan relish and dark chocolate all in one dessert... if that's not love, we're not sure what is. Suzanne's sweet recipe won her a $150 Williams-Sonoma gift card.

"This is a perfect dessert for celebrating Valentine's Day - it's pretty, it's delicious and so much fun to eat together!"

Runner-up is Daniel Rinaldi's Wicked Hot Chocolate Ice Cream. Dan won a $75 gift card to Williams-Sonoma.

"This recipe embraces the true spirit of Valentine's Day. A little bit hot and spicy mixed with a little bit sweet."

Honorable Mentions go to...
Sweet Italian Sausage Lasagna, Dee Dee's - Diane Hopson Smith
"This is one of my sweeties favorite meals. And it will be served on Valentine's Day. While you could take a short cut and use store bought sauce, the homemade sauce is better, and he's worth the extra effort."

Red Sweetheart Waffles with Strawberry Sauce - Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Girl
"Say good morning to your sweetheart with these red strawberry glazed waffles."

We were overwhelmed by the number of entries and the different types of recipes submitted. Our home cooks definitely know the way to the heart is through the stomach!
