Celebrate Valentine's Day with a romantic dinner for two. If you enjoy cooking together, plan and prepare your dinner together. The meal doesn't have to (shouldn't!) be an elaborate or time-consuming chore; if your partner's favorite food is macaroni & cheese, serve it in a fancy dish and enjoy. Or, this might be the perfect time to splurge on lobsters, a few pounds of shrimp, or delicious filet mignon or prime rib.

"...Remember, candles, wine and a smile can turn Ragu into amore."
- the Cooking Couple

Set your table with your best dinnerware, romantic linens, flowers, and candles. Don't forget the wine and cheese and your favorite romantic music to set the mood. Clean as you cook, but don't worry about the mess afterward; leave the dishes till morning and enjoy each other!
