Valentine’s Day Dinner & Dessert Ideas

A rush of flowers and hearts will be everywhere you look for the next several days as people scramble to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts, cards and plans. Truth be told, I’m not a big fan of the holiday, because it’s way too commercialized — and very overpriced.

Before I get a bunch of comments, I’ve always felt this way, and it’s not just because I’m single. I would rather my boyfriend plan a romantic dinner or give me flowers on Feb. 24 than Feb. 14, when the world is telling him. It’s much more meaningful.

That said, my perfect Valentine’s Day would be enjoyed with a simple, well-cooked meal, champagne, wine and a tasty dessert. I’ve compiled some recipes that would make good Valentine’s Day dinners and desserts that I hope will help you create your own menu.

  1. I feel the same way about Valentine's day and I have a boyfriend. We don't go out on valentines day's. We prefer to go out another day then when restaurants are overcharging or you have to wait 1 or 2 hours to be seated only to have the food taste bad because they're doing everything in a hurry.
