simple valentine's day dinner recipes

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and while that means lots of love is going to be floating in the air a few days from now, it doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on an expensive date out. You can make a heartfelt meal at home as a way to cook together or as a way to surprise your loved one.

The recipes that I’ve listed are so easy-peasy and they include ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. This means that you’ll only have to buy a few items at the store and, by keeping it pretty simple, your dinner will be a guaranteed success. Serve the dishes on some pretty plates and you’re gonna have a beautiful fancy-restaurant-inspired dinner that is both frugal and effortless.
