So she's cooking up some romantic heart healthy Valentine's Day dishes that won't break the bank!
"And when my honey saves some money and spends it on me, I'm just so happy," said Vicari.
To keep your honey's ticker ticking try Isabella's poached salmon with piccata sauce.
In a hot skillet add two four ounce pieces of salmon, wine and water. Make the creamy sauce with olive oil, shallots, fresh squeezed lemon juice, capers and the white wine of your choice.
"And voila! You have a valentine's day dish that is affordable, that is beautiful, and that is very health conscious," said Vicari.
For meat lovers try osso buco with beef shank instead of lamb. And sautee chopped veggies with wine.
"The minute you put that first bite in your mouth, you're going to say, life is good," said Vicari.
The delicious dishes have her husband Jeff's pulse racing
The third way Isabella says you can keep the heart healthy Valentine's Day theme going all year long is by cooking with her five favorite red ingredients. She suggests adding tomatoes, pomegranate, cherries, beats and chili peppers to your favorite meals. They're packed with antioxidants and vitamins.
