I’m not one to shy away from cooking a “fancy” meal at home. Still, there is something about Valentine’s Day that always makes me want to kick it up a notch. Whether it’s just you and your significant other, or you plan to include the kids or even another couple, there is no reason not to make the meal special.
Add a bright red table cloth, bring out the fancy dishes and drink sparkling cider out of champagne flutes. It’s Valentine’s so celebrate the ones you love!
These delicious ideas will take you from ordinary weeknight dinner to celebration spectacular in no time at all!
