Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day can be pretty stressful.  You have one day to show your love just how much they mean to you.

You search for the perfect card, you spend hours researching the perfect present and then you and your partner have to agree on the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day.  I’m tired just thinking about it.

And if you are just starting a relationship, you have to find the perfect balance not too romantic but just romantic enough.  Whew, that’s a tough one.

Restaurants are packed, and dining is anything but relaxing since they need to turn that table.

Relaxing Romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner


Forget all of that and forget about going out for an over-priced, hurried meal, stay home and cook a meal together.

instead, relax.  Get dressed up, if you like or have dinner in your PJ’s. Turn the lights down, light some candles, and play romantic music while you cook your favorite meal or try something new.

Sip wine while you chop veggies, share a charcuterie board while sipping an aperitif by the fireplace while you wait for the braised chicken to be ready.

Then sit back and leisurely dine.  Take your time, savor the food and enjoy each other.

Cap off the evening with a beautiful port or after dinner coffee, paired with chocolate hazelnut fondue or another favorite dessert.
