Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to spend a little extra time with that someone special. Our favorite way to do that is by cooking together. We’ve all heard the old adage “the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach” and I for one am a firm believer.
So this Valentine’s Day, skip the expensive restaurant and enjoy cooking at home. Instead, cook one of our recommended Valentine’s dishes – easy enough for the novice home cook, but sensational enough to make the evening special. You can divide and conquer or work together, enjoy spending time just being together.
If you’re looking to get the kids helping too check out our Kid Approved Valentine’s Day for recipes the whole family can make together.
