A Decadent Valentine's Day Menu for Two
The fastest way to the heart is through the stomach
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. But you don't need expensive gifts to show your love. After all, it’s well-known that the way to the heart is through the stomach—even more so when the meal is homemade. This isn’t only true on Valentine’s Day, either. Cooking together is the perfect occasion to spend time with your loved one any day of the year.
Start the holiday with a delicious breakfast (in bed, preferably), then feast on a romantic dinner for two that evening—and don’t forget to spoil yourselves with a sweet dessert to finish!
A Romantic Start
Perfect for a breakfast in bed! The grated apples lend the pancake extra moisture, and the caramelized walnuts will bring a smile to both of your faces.
This vitamin-bomb first thing in the morning is a great start to an energy-filled day filled with even better company (and lots of love).
Dinner for Two: The Starter
The perfect starter for a special evening! Goat cheese, straight from the oven, is spiced up with honey and plums and is simply irresistible.
Fall in Love with the Main Course
The Lady and the Tramp proved the power of pasta when it comes to matters of the heart—why not recreate the moment with this unforgettable dish?
Italian cuisine is unimaginable without this dish; it’s a culinary highlight, especially for vegetarians. Simple but high-quality ingredients will make this recipe a new favorite for you and your sweetheart.
The Finishing Touch
For a perfect Valentine’s Day dessert, you don't need more than chocolate, raspberries, and a big pinch of love!
Cheesecake comes in all shapes and colors, but rarely in a glass (or this easy to prepare)! For this version, creamy Greek yogurt and fresh fruit of your choice are layered atop crunchy cookie dough.
Pro tip: It’s most delicious by candlelight!
Made with Love
A homemade gift rounds off a perfect Valentine’s day! There is no limit to expressing your love when it comes to gifts made by hand and treats shared together.
