Polenta with Maple Syrup and Marscapone – It is a pretty simple dish and enough said!
Ingredients
  Water 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Polenta 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Pure maple syrup 2 Tablespoon (Use As Needed)
  Mascarpone cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Use Plenty)
Directions

MAKING
1. Heat a large saucepan and bring the water to a boil.
2. Immediately, add in the polenta and salt. Whisk well, do not let it form granules.
3. Lower the heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently until it turns thick and velvety for at least 45 minutes.
4. If the polenta is too thick, add more water. And there is no such thing as overcooking the polenta. It just gets smoother and smoother. The chef's grandmother used to keep adding water and cook it for hours. Take a hint y'all.
SERVING
5. Spoon the polenta into bowls and top it generously with marscapone and maple syrup. Serve in bed with a big spoon.

TIPS
Pour any leftover polenta into a well-oiled pan. Refrigerate and re-heat or grill in slices.

Story
In my continuing search for luscious aphrodisiac dishes, I managed to stumble upon this one. This is a 'breakfast in bed' recipe, ideal for the 'morning after'. I wish I could claim the recipe as my own but I can't. This recipe is from Jesse Cool, Owner and Chef of the Flea Street Cafe from Menlo Park, CA. Polenta is no aphrodisac, but in the chef's own words, “Imagine, a rainy Saturday morning. No where to go. Forget all the things you have to do. Make this polenta and take two bowls back to bed, one for you and one for your lover. You may just stay under the covers longer than you thought." I am imagining it already!
