Are you staying home for Valentine’s Day this year? Or do you go out to dinner? We usually just stay home and I make a fancy(er) meal to celebrate instead, so I’m always on the hunt for new Valentine’s Day recipes for dinner.
The thing is, it doesn’t really have to be all that fancy.
The point of Valentine’s Day is to spend time with the one you love, right?
So, why waste most of your time in the kitchen cooking?
Instead, choose an easy Valentine’s Day recipe that doesn’t take a ton of time to prepare.
Then, take the extra time to cozy on up to your honey and watch a sweet, romantic comedy on Netflix.
Here’s 5 of my favorite Valentine’s Day recipes for dinner…
