For the Love of Marinated Venison Tenderloins

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, a time to show your love and appreciation to those closest in your life. That's right, don't just focus on your partner- tell your mom and dad, siblings, close friends, co-workers, neighbors, the post man... anyone who means a lot in your life, that you love and appreciate all they do for you.

And flowers and chocolate are nice, but cooking food for someone is one of the most meaningful ways to show someone that you appreciate them. Food is essential for our bodies to survive and grow; providing a nutritious and delicious meal to a loved one shows that you are devoted to their longevity on this earth. This is a simple yet delicious roasted loin recipe that pairs perfectly with a nice glass of red wine, candle lit table setting, a bubble bath, some massage oils... (try this one with your partner ;)
