Valentine’s Day Menu (Dinner for Two)

Jump to Recipe

In a normal year, I’d tell you to skip the Valentine’s Day pre-fixe menus but I’m going to guess that’s already the plan for most of us this year so let’s get right into the menus! I’m all about staying in, cooking dinner together and celebrating Valentine’s Day at home (preferably in pajamas)! So in an effort to help make sure everyone has an epic night, a few Valentine’s Day Menu options are below!

Menu #1 – if you guys are surf and turf lovers…

T-Bone Steak for 2, Lobster Risotto, Avocado Citrus and Fennel Salad, and a Rosé Spritz

Menu #2 – if you’re feeling a more vegetarian vibe…

Eggplant Rollatini with Parmesan Risotto and a Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad!

  1. These V menu is fantastic!
    My husband and I love to stay home and cook together, it doesn’t matter the occasion.
    Thank you Gaby!

  2. Most of your recipes are for families. This is a good thing BUT many singles and couples follow as well.
    When I see a 9 x 13 pan I know I need to cut it in 3rds or 4ths. I’ve see recipes that do this for you.
    Is this something you could incorporate in yours? Even 1/2?

    1. Hi Jan,
      I wonder if you ever thought to make the entire recipe and instead of cooking it all , first divide it into 2 dishes, one to cook that day and another into maybe a disposable foil baking container you Can freeze to make later? I realize that you could not do this on every dish without taking all your freezer space but maybe on just the extra large recipes.
