• Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas Valentine’s Dinner Suggestions Breast Augmentation Special with Free Juvederm filler or Botox! Romantic Restaurants

    Mused after reading that of the top 100 most romantic restaurants in the country, Cincinnati has three. They are Sotto, downtown, Pepp & Dolores, OTR, and Carlo & Johnny in Montgomery. I have eaten at all three and are worth the effort to enjoy especially with a significant other.

    All the nurses, Ashley & Diane et. al., were wonderful. Very caring and soothing. The NA, Erica, was also very calming and explained everything. Dr. McK was a perfect captain to the ship. Everything ran so smoothly from my perspective. All in all a great experience even if it was a major surgery. Thanks to all. -N.H.


    Suggestions for easy yet meaningful and healthy Valentine’s dinner

    Here are some ideas that can still be pulled together before tomorrow evening. For nonalcohol, seltzer with lime or lemon ice tea can be served. Some thoughts on affordable wine are: Myles and Moore pinot noir, Kendall Jackson Vintner’s Reserve merlot, Joel Gott sauvignon blanc, and of course, Mumm Napa Brut sparkling wine.

    Shrimp cocktail works well as an appetizer for a special occasion.

    Steak or salmon are easy to grill or pan fry. Sirloin or for a splurge, filet, have little fat and are healthier than most other steaks.

    Salad compliments everything. The only rule is the more colorful the better. Use low fat dressing or olive oil and vinegar.

    Sides are plentiful but asparagus, broccoli, and carrots are easy to roast.

    For dessert, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries with low calorie cool whip or whipped cream are simple but tasty.

    Bon appetite!
