Five Easy Valentines Day Dinners for Two

Send the kids to grandma’s and enjoy a romantic meal at home using these easy Valentine’s Day dinners for two. Use the time you’ll save fussing over a stove to set a beautiful table and take a long, luxurious bath.

Filet Mignon with Balsamic Glaze

It doesn’t get any easier than steak. Splurge on the best cut from the butcher, add a crisp salad, a great bottle of wine and something chocolate. See this and four other Valentine’s menus at

Honey-Grilled Shrimp

A marinade of honey and garlic turns a pound of shrimp into a succulent Valentine’s Dinner for two in mere minutes. Serve it with a quick rice pilaf. Pair it up with a lemon curd tart. Get the recipe at Taste of Home.

French Red Onion Soup

The sexiest soup I know, it’s rich with caramelized onions and topped with an unctuous layer of melted gruyere on a crusty crouton. Even better, you can pull it off in under an hour. Serve with a salad of winter greens. Fresh fruit, more cheese and bittersweet chunks of chocolate finish off this romantic meal. Get the recipe from Gourmet.

You Won’t Be Single for Long Vodka Cream Pasta

Even if you’re already married, you gotta love the name of this recipe from Rachel Ray. It’s creamy, dreamy and ready in about 30 minutes. Ray recommends a fruity red wine like Sangiovese. Keep the Italian theme going with Amaretti cookies and ice cream. Get the recipe at Food Network.

Marmalade Chicken for Two

A tangy sauce transform chicken into something special that’s ready in about 20 minutes. This recipe from Eating Well calls for chicken tenders, but you could easily make it fancier with breasts. Asparagus with an orange-spiked hollandaise would pair well and orange-chocolate cheese cake would round out the citrus love fest. Get the recipe.
