Valentine’s Day is one of my all-time favorite holidays… and I’m not just saying that because it’s also my birthday! In my opinion, we should always celebrate the people we love, and of course, love itself! This special day calls for special treats: Here are some of my best Valentine’s Day recipes just for you, from romantic dinner ideas to so… much… dessert. I hope you enjoy!

Dinner for Two, Please: Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas

Personally, I think it’s more romantic to cook at home on Valentine’s Day than it is to go out. Don’t get me wrong—I love a fancy dinner and a nice glass of wine… but I also believe there are merits to making it yourself! Try some of these absolutely delicious main dishes and sides this Valentine’s Day.

Serve your Valentine a chocolatey cocktail or a classic like my Pappy’s Manhattan. 

Treat your sweetie pie to an ice cold Valentine’s Day cocktail. These V-Day cocktail recipes are sure to sweeten up your evening even more. Go with the chocolate martini, and you won’t even need dessert. Yum!

Oh, and let’s not forget the best part desserts!

It’s not a celebration without dessert. Try one of these chocolate recipes for Valentine’s Day if you love chocolate like me. If you’re not feeling the chocolate, not to worry—I included some other festive options too!
