Last Minute Valentine Ideas for Phoenix Foodies

Yep, it happened. Again. It's Valentine's Day and you have nothing. Nada. Bupkis.

Take a deep breath. It's not too late. Plenty of time. Chow Bella is here to help.

And don't worry. We're not talking about a $55,000 diamond ring or that crazy plan Pizza Hut has to sell you a $10 pizza plus a wedding. This is all stuff you can do and get today (assuming you don't have, oh, a job or kids to take care of).

Start with chocolate. Grab some for yourself and your loved one -- here are some ideas from our 14 Phoenix Chocolate Fixes list.

For the Cook Who Only Likes to Make Reservations: We've got not one but two round-ups of dining options. But get your phone out. Like now.

For the Newbie Cook: If a high school kid can do it, so can you. Check out our super simple chicken piccata meal -- then get yourself to the grocery store. Or give chocolate covered strawberries a shot.

For the Crafty Cook: This one might take a bit more time than you've got, but Laura Gill mastered a heart-in-a-cake, and you can certainly find something a little less tricky to make for your honey on Pinterest. Or you could tackle our homemade conversation hearts. It's a lot easier than it looks.

If all else fails, consult our list of Edible Gifts Sure to Get You Laid.

You're welcome.
