A Romantic Dinner for Two

by Mindy on February 13, 2010

Valentine’s Day
is Tomorrow!
So for all of you who have decided to stay home and make a romantic dinner for two, we thought we’d give you an idea for one fabulous dinner.  This is a dinner that will make your mouth happy and not have you slaving all day in the kitchen.  The point is to enjoy your sweetheart, as well as do something nice for them.  So set a pretty table, light a few candles, and prepare to share a wonderful, romantic dinner with your Valentine! 

First for the main dish:  simple, mouthwatering…

Garlic Rubbed Steak 
I’ll probably convince my husband to put on a parka and grill these for us.  But I’m sure they would still be great in a skillet or baked in the oven.

On the side: 
Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce 
This feels gourmet and major bonus… it is super easy!

Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes Steak doesn’t feel complete without potatoes to me.  You could make gravy to go on these, but they are yummy plain, as well.

Grandma’s Dinner Rolls What can I say?  Grandma and Grandpa have been married over 60 years.  Their secret to keeping the romance alive?  I don’t know… but I do know I wouldn’t leave a woman who could cook like that! :)

And now for the most important part… DESSERT!  I couldn’t choose just one, so I am giving you a few  to drool over.

Sweetheart Custard Dessert Beautiful, special, and couldn’t be more perfect for Heart Day!

Chocolate-Almond-Coconut Fondue This dessert is not only fun, it takes a little while to eat… finally some one-on-one time to chat about anything and everything.  Besides, they say chocolate is an aphrodisiac.


Edible Chocolate Bowls with White Chocolate Mouse and Drizzle This has got to be the ultimate romantic dessert!  I mean, does it get any better than getting to eat your bowl?  And remember what I said about chocolate…

We hope you have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
