40 Recipes for Valentine’s Day Dinner

For Valentines Day Matt and I decided we would stay in for dinner. It’s just too much of a pain to try to go out and we’d end up spending a lot of money. So I figured this would be a fun way to make a decadant dinner for the two of us. But I can’t decide what to make! It all sounds so good!

So here’s some recipes I’ve compiled that if you’re in the same situation may help out. And if you’re single, treat yourself to something delicious!

  2. I made Jake halibut for Valentine’s Day and he absolutely loved it. I know I cooked other things too but I can’t remember now because he was just so stoked about the halibut.
