We long ago stopped debating about eating out or in for Valentine's Day. Eating out on February 14 is too expensive, with fancy, overpriced set menus. And the service always seems a little surly because the restaurant is busy and the staff would rather be elsewhere. As a result, we eat at home on Valentine's.
(The best day to go to a restaurant, we discovered, is February 15! The restaurant is much quieter and the meals are back to normal price.)
What about you? Will you or your loved one be cooking for Valentine's Day? Here are some ideas to make this romantic day easy and successful.
Pumpkin and peach salad with lemongrass dressing
Cauliflower soup with roasted red pepper swirl
Chilled strawberry soup (Sorry, no picture, it's from that far back in the Simply Cooked archive!)
A romantic living room picnic
Honey panna cotta
Simple dark chocolate mousse
Strawberry and nutella muffins
Sugar-free frozen banana cream pie
Cranberry and date heart cut-out cookies
