Easy date night dinner that beat a fancy restaurant you got this…
The ultimate test of a relationship is, if you can tolerate each other in the kitchen. Luckily, these easy recipes will make things a little smoother-and will taste delicious no matter what!
I’m a firm believer in spending quality, grown-up time with your significant other. But it’s not uncommon to find date night taking the backseat.
If you’re looking to bring back the magic, these date night meals are for you. No more repetitive take-out or frozen pizza! Trust me; you’ll want to make an effort when you see some of these fantastic meals. You might even want to have date nights more often.
1 – HOMEMADE BLOODY MARYS
When you want to make a meal special, you should look for things you only get when you’re at a restaurant. That goes for drinks, too!
A good bloody Mary is super refreshing, with just the right amount of spice and that little kick of booze.
2 – ROASTED BEET SALAD
If you want to try to make your date night a little more special, incorporating pretty dishes like this is such an easy way to up your game.
Would I have thought to combine roasted beets with pears, feta, and wants? No way.
* feta cheese
3 – MARRY ME CHICKEN
Creamy, salty, and full of garlic, this one will knock your socks off. The classic combination of sun-dried tomatoes and cream is always going to be a safe bet.
But I especially love this one-pot wonder. Once your chicken thighs are crisp, the sauce cooks right in the same pan. Everything cooks together so that the flavours all marry just right.
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 4 chicken thighs
* onions diced
* 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
* 100g butter
* 1 batch of parsley
4 – CRISPY CHICKEN PARMESAN (PARMIGIANA) ITALIAN DISH
I quickly fell in love with chicken parm, or chicken parmi, on my way in cooking and I made more of it for lovers date night. You can ask in every pub, and its always amazing.
The chicken needs to be cut in quoters or in half to tenderise, so it’s all the same thickness.
It’s best made in an oven-proof skillet, so you can go from the stovetop to a hot oven without having to move everything to a baking dish.
* 500ml homemade tomato sauce
* 250g parmesan cheese
* 4 chicken breast or thighs
* 1 tsp dried oregano
* 1tbsp rosemary
* 100g mozzarella
* 4 tbsp olive oil
5 – SCALLOPED POTATOES RECIPE
I love potatoes in every form. But when they’re sliced and covered in a creamy sauce, they’re impossible to resist. This recipe is such a great base, but I do like to jazz it up sometimes by adding garlic, bacon, and lots of cheese!
A great way to add flavour is to steep your milk with an array of herbs and spices. Bring it to a light boil and then allow it to cool. You can strain everything out, and you’ll be left with one savory pot of milk.
* 1 kg cooked potatoes
* 250g butter
* 1 cup infused milk (with harbs)
* fresh rosemary
* 1 tsp salt and pepper
6 – CHOCOLATE LAVA MUG CAKE
I love that these can be made individually. Not that I don’t like to share! But at least you don’t have to make a big batch when you only need for two.
I cheated a little and used a big liddt chocolate ball to make the middle ultra gooey and super-rich. I but you will still get the same effect with smaller pieces of chocolate.
7 – AFFOGATO COFFEE
Speaking of a coffee and dessert in one; this recipe has to be my favourite.
Affogato means ” to drown”, and that’s what this is-ice cream drowning in coffee. As the ice cream, it becomes creamy and thick.
8 – KIR ROYALE COCKTAIL
If I’m celebrating, there’d better be a cocktail! Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time or patience to shake, rattle, and roll my way to a fruity drink.
That’s why I love this simple cocktail so much. It’s made with just two ingredients-champagne and creme de cassis and beer.
I’m not a huge fan of champagne, but with the creme de cassis and beer it has such a lovely, light flavour. Add a couple of raspberries in the glass make the whole thing adorably Facebook worthy or WordPress website too!.
* 2 oz champagne
* 3 oz creme de cassis
* top up with your choice of beer
Garnish with raspberries
