A Decadent Valentine's Day Menu for Two

A Decadent Valentine's Day Menu for Two

The fastest way to the heart is through the stomach

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. But you don't need expensive gifts to show your love. After all, it’s well-known that the way to the heart is through the stomach—even more so when the meal is homemade. This isn’t only true on Valentine’s Day, either. Cooking together is the perfect occasion to spend time with your loved one any day of the year.
Start the holiday with a delicious breakfast (in bed, preferably), then feast on a romantic dinner for two that evening—and don’t forget to spoil yourselves with a sweet dessert to finish!
