10 From GEM: Valentine’s Day Edition:
Sexy Cuisine In Under 30 Minutes

I’m so excited about today’s Valentine’s Day Edition! J Federer is a Michelin-starred chef that specializes in Sex on the Table. According to his website (which also serves as his alias), cheffed, he uses aphrodisiacs you can find in any organic store to create his dishes. Today he shares with us 10 sexy recipes that you can make in about 30 minutes. The actual clock time is 10 minutes, but I know by reading them some of us (me) would need a little extra time. Each recipe serves two and there are some vegetarian options as well. Enjoy! ~Ella
