Romantic (and CHEAP) Valentine’s Day Recipes

Valentines Day

Ahh, Valentine’s Day is almost here. This romantic holiday sure is fun to celebrate, even if you’re celebrating with friends. But, doesn’t it feel like the holiday season JUST ended? If your bank account is still recovering, it can make Valentine’s Day seem a lot less romantic. Flowers, gifts, jewelry, a candle lit dinner…it all adds up.

Just because you want to save some money, doesn’t mean you can impress your friends or significant other. If done well, enjoying a meal at home can be better than going out to an expensive restaurant. Cooking a meal for a loved one shows that you care, which is a lot better than spending money in our opinion.

We want you to have the best Valentine’s Day ever. So, we’ve put together some recipes to make things easy for you:

For a Romantic Dinner for 2

If you’re celebrating with a significant other this year, it’s important to pull out all the stops.

They don’t have to know it was cheap, either! We won’t tell if you don’t.

Coconut Cauliflower Bisque

For a beautiful, light, and tasty appetizer, go with a soup. This cauliflower soup adds an unusual element to make it extra-special for the holiday: coconut.

Herb-Garlic Roasted Flank Steak with Pan-Roasted Grapes

Nothing says romance like steak. Cooking steak can often be intimidating, but this recipe is easy, fun to make, and delicious.

Pro tip: this recipe goes perfectly with some mashed potatoes and a glass of wine.

Save Room for Dessert

There’s no better way to end a meal than with a cup of coffee and something sweet.

Romantic Brownie Sundaes

Simple and delicious. That’s all you need for dessert. A heart-shaped brownie is the perfect way to say “I love you!”

Have the Best Dish in the Potluck

If you’re celebrating with friends this year, you’ll still want to make them something special. Check out these amazing potluck recipes:

Strawberry-Basil Shortcakes

For a grownup take on a classic, you’ve got to try this. These are easy to assemble, but taste very sophisticated.

Heart-Shaped Rice Krispie Treats

Your friends will adore you for making these cute & scrumptious treats.
