Hey hey! Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, and I’m bringing you all of my best ideas for a date night at home with those you love. If you planning to dine out or bring dinner in, take a quick look at my dinner ideas before doing so. You might save yourself some time and money, and your loved one will feel extra special!
Valentine’s Dinner #1 – Meat Lovers
Slow Cooker Beef Au Jus Sandwiches – Let this beef cook all day in your slow cooker, and dinner is a breeze.
Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes – These potatoes are the perfect side dish for beef, and are ultra creamy and delish!
Valentine’s Dinner #2 – Pasta Lovers
Rigatoni Pasta with Sausage – This quick pasta is an easy weeknight meal, but impressive enough for special occasions as well! Pretty healthy too.
Chewy French Bread – My all-time most popular recipe that is the perfect 5-ingredient bread to start baking with. Head to the blog for all the tips and tricks!
Valentine’s Dinner #3 – Seafood Lovers
Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon – Make up the simple spice rub for all your grilling needs, and then make this salmon on an outdoor grill. My family loves this recipe!
Crunchy Asian Cabbage Salad – A classic salad recipe that I tweaked to make healthier! This is my most popular salad on the blog. 🙂
Valentine’s Dinner #4 – Taco Lovers
Easy Fish Tacos with Avocado Crema – This recipe gets rave reviews on the blog, and you should totally try it. Simple, healthy, and delish!
Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers – Gotta love some jalapeño poppers for ANY occasion! Simple to prep ahead of time.
Valentine’s Dinner #5 – Breakfast Lovers
Ham and Cheese Quiche – No reason to shy away from breakfast for dinner on Valentine’s Day. This quiche is SO good, that your fam will decide it’s a keeper, for sure.
Classic Buttermilk Pancakes – Pancakes are great for dinner, and they go perfect with the quiche.
True LOVE Desserts
We’ve got chocolate for everyone in this spread of Valentine’s Desserts. Here’s how I’d present them for your loves.
Texas Sheet Cake Brownies – Use a decorating tube, to make giant hearts in red, or write out, “I love you”.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – Arrange the cookies in a heart shaped pattern. Too good to be true!
White Chocolate Oreo Truffles – Just decorate these as seen below. Can’t go wrong with Oreos!
Triple Chocolate Brownies – Clean some strawberries, and cut them into heart shapes. Place them on the plate with the decadent brownies. 😀
Happy Valentine’s Day, and have a special night in with those you love!
