Sweets for My Sweetie

February 9, 2012 by blackbirdideas

Valentine’s Day is next week. Its on the 14th. Tuesday. Just keeping you in the loop.

Whether dating or single, I have always celebrated Valentine’s Day. I have always been one of those girls who is either on a date or who is getting in touch with my girlfriends on February 14th. Once, I may have even worn black. Once… maybe. I fall for Valentine’s Day every year and with it being during the week this year, I imagine I will be cooking in. Bf works a lot during the week and often during dinner time, but I won’t let that get me down. I am having a Valentine’s Day dinner (even if it just for myself).

After scouring the internet for what to make, I thought that some of you may be in a similar predicament so I thought I would share some of what I stumbled across. Some are my own recipes, some are recipes that I cooked but didn’t create, and some are recipes that I just stumbled across today for the first time.

{Here are some appetizers that I thought would be perfect for a V-Day dinner}

A Simple Caesar Salad

{Fontina Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon}

{Smoked Salmon with accoutrements}

This is me and Bf (and I think his entire family’s) go-to appetizer I was shocked to see it on the internet the exact way that we make it. Its delish. 

{Its clear from my list that I am craving steak… or scallops… or something of the like}

{Seared Scallops over Wilted Spinach}

{Grilled Asian Flank Steak}

{NY Strip with Red Wine Sauce}

{Scallops Bonne Femme}

This is the first fancy dish that I ever learned to cook. Super easy and is sure to impress!

{Pork Chops with Garlic and Wine}

{Caramelized Scallops}

{Filet Au Poivre}

One of the best steak recipes ever. I have made this same recipe before and it is superb!

{Seriously what is Valentine’s Day without red velvet cake dessert?}

{Red…gulp…Velvet…gulp…Cake}

{Tiramisu}

{Creme Brulee}

{Because sometimes you can’t have dinner together… or you would rather have breakfast together… or have breakfast for dinner because it is more romantic. I wouldn’t be upset with either.}

{When Pancakes Met French Toast and Fell in Love}

{Eggs Benedict}

Shoo… it was so hard for me not to comment on each picture and try to convince you to make that one for Valentine’s Day. These are just a couple of my favorite decadent, fancy, and over-the-top dinners. You know, the kind that are suitable for Valentine’s day. I am off to eat plain chicken now that I can still fit into my pants the 15th of February.

Why does my peanut look like he's taking his high school football picture?
