My Fabulous Valentine’s Day Menu That You Will Love
Valentine’s Day isn’t just seafood, steak, and roses, and it’s not just for lovers either! It’s fun to celebrate with friends and family. Likely you don’t want to spend your entire evening cooking so we’ve included recipes that are simpler and lighter, including some deserts on this Valentine’s Day menu. We also have the classics like pasta and chicken parmesan—something for everyone! If you’re vegan, definitely check out my Vegan Mushroom Risotto or Vegan Sunday Salad.
The Best Valentine’s Day Menu! Let’s Go!
It’s finally here! The Smashburger of the century has arrived. I’m so delighted to share this recipe that I think we have done to perfection. Of course, it all starts with Porter Road’s fabulous ground beef. From there, you just need a few tips and tricks to have the perfect smashburger in no time.
This Chicken Parm is easy to make, but takes a little bit of finesse. I have long loved making Eggplant Parm, so I used a lot of similar techniques to make this dish. It’s great for weeknight eating, but it’s also a fabulous choice for a celebratory dinner too!
Our new Crispy Crunchy Chicken salad with a light vinaigrette is a “must make now” recipe. The combination of beautiful, fresh greens, fresh herbs, crunchy cucumber, and an exceptionally delicious umami citrus dressing, topped with my Marinated Red Onions, results in a refreshing, unparalleled level of deliciousness. The fresh herbs are especially fantastic.
Our new Caesar Toast recipe is luscious, delicious, and easy–the explosion of flavors is pretty much epic! Keep scrolling to the bottom of the post to learn how to make my Caesar dressing recipe, which is truly a Magic Elixir.
My Mediterranean Salmon Bowl is an inspired way to eat this fall, and there are endless ways to make this exceptional salmon recipe your own. Use your favorite ingredients and whatever is in season or in your fridge to create a delicious, nutrient-filled salmon bowl you’ll enjoy on repeat.
If you know me, you know there’s almost nothing more romantic than a candlelit dinner with a perfectly cooked ribeye and mashed potatoes. Lucky for me, Roy feels very similarly. We love making an indulgent, buttery dinner at the cabin for a date night in. I’m going to teach you a simple but delicious way to prepare a ribeye. It’s the perfect dish for Valentine’s Day!
Some of you may know that I am not the biggest coffee drinker, but when it comes to an Espresso Martini, I’m all in. I didn’t realize quite how easy it was to make until we began making them! They are perfect for the holidays, and they are a fabulous after dinner cocktail. It feels so fancy, especially when served in beautiful coupe glasses.
This is the most amazingly delicious cake. Perfect for the holiday, it’s both sumptuous and simple. It’s special enough to make for a celebration–Fernanda made it for my birthday–but the recipe is easy enough to make as an everyday cake.
This gluten-free Coconut Cake recipe from my friend K.C. of the G Free Foodie is light, fluffy, sweet, and loaded with coconut flavor.
The entire nocrumbsleft team agrees that this is the most fabulous slice of coconut cake you will ever sink your teeth into.
I’ve always loved a Sundae…I mean, who doesn’t? What’s not to love about scoops of decadent ice cream piled high with the most fabulous ice cream toppings, like hot fudge, candy bars, nuts, and sprinkles. Sundaes are fun for kids, but you definitely don’t have to be a kid to enjoy one.
