Ways to Create a Great Valentine’s Day Meal

There are many ways to create romance with these wonderful romantic recipes menus. How about breakfast in bed for your favorite Valentine? Treat your loved one to eggs benedict and sticky buns or delicious sweet waffles topped with strawberries.

Our Valentines Day lunch menu starts with yummy crab cakes. Create an easy quiche and a decadent, but surprisingly easy, chocolate mousse.

Is your Valentine a meat lover? Then treat them to steak with mushroom sauce or rack of lamb, with garlic mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables and luscious chocolate cheesecake.

Seafood always seems like the ultimate romantic food and we have a Valentines Day recipes menu that is sure to set the mood. A rich and creamy lobster bisque, followed by cedar plank salmon or the sweet savoriness of lobster tails. All served with wild rice and asparagus.

Prefer the romance of Italy? How about pasta Alfredo with Caesar salad and grilled garlic mushrooms?

Romantic moments are not just created with a full meal. Capture the romance of Valentines Day with luscious chocolate fondue for two, or the ultimate romantic food oysters Rockefeller. My personal favorite would be eggs benedict, any time of day.

Some people want a more casual Valentines Day. We have a wonderful Mexican menu, with guacamole, chicken enchilada casserole, taco salad and key lime pie.

The most important thing? Don’t follow anyone else’s rules. It’s your day, and that special someone of course. Make what you both love.
