Date night meals should not be intimidating. It’s entirely possible to put together something decadent, tasty and romantic in 30 minutes or less with only a few ingredients.
Think about the “fancy” things you would order at a nice restaurant; steak, seafood, pasta, even dessert…..all of these things can truly be prepared in practically no time at all. The secret behind what makes these items special is the quality of the ingredients.
It’s worth it to spend a little extra on the very best ingredients because you’ll make up for it with the time you save in preparation.
There’s nothing more romantic than cooking dinner together at home. Whether you’ve been married for 25 years, or are going on a first date, food is a great way to bring people together. Date night meals are all about camaraderie, conversation, and quality time.
A little chocolate dessert doesn’t hurt either.
