Preparing Food for Your Loved Ones on Valentine’s Day


Here in America, there seem to be two sorts of people: those who buy into Valentine's Day and those who think it's a marketing campaign designed by greeting card companies to boost their bottom lines.

Wherever you may fall on the continuum between those two points, if you are in a relationship, it's probably smart to commemorate the day somehow.

If flowers, balloons, and teddy bears are to cliche, consider preparing an amazing dinner instead. Not only is a great meal always appreciated, but it also comes with a bonus gift of quality time spent together. If this sounds good to you, read on. We've gathered a few options for you to choose from as you prepare food for your loved ones on Valentine's Day.

Option 1: Lover's Beef Burgundy Fillet

According to the one who planned the recipe, you must be very careful for whom you prepare this dish.

Burgandy wine-marinated filet mignon steaks are cooked on the grill and topped with a dollop of peppery butter in this recipe that you'll love to serve for special occasions.

Option 2: Garlic Rosemary Chicken

Okay, so maybe a dish loaded with garlic isn't the best choice for date night. But it's just so delicious that we don't care, and we don't think you will, either.

Option 3: Surf and Turf for Two

In addition to a downright delicious option, this choice comes with the added bonus of the perfect built-in line: “I can't think of any two things that go better together than shrimp and steak. Unless it's me and you.” With only a 50-minute prep time from start to finish, this is also a good one to cook together.  

Option 4: The Ultimate Paleo-Friendly Valentine's Menu

Whether you've gone paleo yourself or you just love someone who has, we haven't forgotten about you. Check out this meal plan from our good friends over at Food & Wine.
