February is the month that turns our thoughts to love. And with Valentine’s Day arriving in just a few short weeks, now is a good time to start planning ahead for a seductive dinner for two with your partner.

With a few simple tips, you can arrange a romantic and even exotic getaway to celebrate your love right in your own home.

Remember, it’s all about the drama, baby! The fun kind of drama that makes your spouse or partner feel so special; because you created a theme that is intoxicating and super sexy. So, I say step it up! You would be amazed at how your imagination will be triggered when you zero in on something that will spark an idea for a theme.

What inspired me was my silver samurai statue. I grabbed him off a pile of books on an end table and decided to create a “Samurai Night.”

With a sushi-inspired menu and my Asian-inspired attire, I created a romantic, exotic escape for two without leaving my home

How to Make Moll Anderson’s Salad to Go

Layers of Love - Asian Salad. Photo credit: beall + thomas photography

When making a salad to pack on a picnic, work backwards. Add your dressing to the container first and then add in your fruits and veggies, cheese, nuts and toppings of your choice next. The lettuce will be your final layer so that it will not be weighed down by your toppings in transit. Think of it like building your salad upside down. All you need to do is dump it out onto your plate when you get there and it will be ready to eat.

Layers Of Love Asian Salad Recipe

Ginger Dressing:
3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon lime or orange juice
1/2 teaspoon minced serrano chile

Salad
1/2 cup sugar snap peas or snow peas, sliced
1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup cucumber slices
Alfalfa sprouts, spicy sprouts or bean sprouts
2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds
1/2 cup torn romaine lettuce
For the dressing, combine the dressing ingredients in a bowl with a whisk, or shake in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

For the salads, pour about 2 tablespoons of the dressing into each of two 1-quart- size wide-mouth canning jars. Add a layer of sugar snaps, dividing them evenly between the jars. Repeat with the cabbage, green onions, cucumber and sprouts. Top with a layer of lettuce. Fit the lids on the jars and tighten the rings.

When ready to serve, turn the jars over to coat the vegetables with dressing. Serves 2.

Moll Anderson’s New Book Sets the Table for Seduction

A beautifully decorated table for two sets the ultimate scene for romance. In my new book Seductive Tables For Two, I share with you how to entertain your partner with stylish, whimsical, even sexy tablescapes.

I believe that getting back to the foundation of the home and creating moments together across a table or tray for two or even a simple picnic are key to spicing up a relationship.

Seductive Tables For Two covers tables for anytime, special occasions and holiday celebrations along with impromptu settings, picnics and creative carry-out presentations.

Throughout the book, I share my must-haves for creative tablescaping, building upon the basics of linens, plates and tableware with details such as candles, flowers and gifts.

I incorporate everything from fine china to affordable options, while inspiring you to add unexpected and personal touches to seduce your partner. Helpful sidebars, fun facts, tablesetting illustrations and glassware selections give you the know-how to make the magic happen.

An extensive recipes for two section contains quick and easy selections for everything from breakfasts to desserts, tantalizing treats and refreshing beverages.

I suggest waking up with Seductive Wake-Up Call eggs, a Pleasure Parfait, or a Pump-Kin Me Up latte.

My picnic choices are bound to please too. Try packing the Layers of Love salads, Hot Diggity Dog Bar with Relish Me embellishments, and Gimmie S’More Lovin smores.

For dinner, recipes such as Hot and Flirty Pasta for Two, Please Baby Please “Mac & Cheese,” and Stuffed with Amore chicken with Tease Me Broccolini are featured.

All the recipes and take-out tips in Seductive Tables For Two are designed to keep you from being tied up in the kitchen allowing you plenty of time to relax and enjoy a special meal with your special someone.

See a sneak peek of Seductive Tables For Two here.

Moll Anderson’s Tips on Displaying Accessories and Color Coordinating Your Closet

Beautifully displaying your accessories helps you see your options when pulling together an outfit.

Sunday September 23rd had the magic of the Emmy Awards in the air and I got to experience a complete girl’s day happening in my house, especially happening in my closet! That’s right, my best gal pal Sophie and I got to hang out all day together.

We spent several hours unpacking, closet reorganizing and catching up on some guilty pleasure television like any and all Bravo and Style Network shows. The anticipation of the 5:30 hour was exciting! I channel-surfed between E! red carpet appearances and watching my buddy, Fashion Guru Lawrence Zarian, doing his fab thing on the red carpet.

My Emmy HOT picks were Padma Lakshmi in the amazing hot orange Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicole Kidman in Antonio Berardi and of course we always love seeing Keith Urban looking so fine. My WORST dressed pick was Lena Dunham–her Prada dress was completely disappointing! The cut of the dress was hard for any female to pull off! Sorry, Lena!

My accomplishments in the closet proved to be quite satisfying! Check it out:

Color coordinating and organizing your closet like a boutique takes the stress out of getting dressed.

Creating vignettes of your accessories in color prove to make life so much easier when creating last minute outfits. It also allows you to enjoy them when you are not wearing them. Don’t forget to consider C.P.U.: Cost Per Use. Creating a rainbow of color keeps your sweaters neatly folded and easy to find, and also has a pleasant effect on the aesthetics of your closet!

All in all, it was a fabulous day! Send me photos of your “Sunday Closet Cases” to share with me your dilemmas and your great ideas.

Don’t forget to Tune in on XM Talk 168, 2 p.m. PST, 5 p.m. EST to The Moll Anderson Show this Saturday! My guests are Bravo’s Miss Advised, Julia Allison and Katie Rosen of FabFitFun.com
