Here are some ideas for the perfect V-Day Meal – including Appetizers, Entrees, Sides, and Desserts!
Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers – Who doesn’t like bacon? If you’re also a fan of spicy, this one is perfect for you!
Watermelon Arugula Salad – Perhaps you want to start off light? This Watermelon Arugula salad is a great way to kick off your special meal!
Avocado Deviled Eggs – If Guacamole and Deviled Eggs had a baby, it would be these Avocado Deviled eggs and they’d taste delicious.
Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Salad – Get your fix of greens and bacon! This salad features green apples, dried cranberries, and is topped off with a citrus and poppy seed vinaigrette.
Stuffed Mushroom with Tomato, Basil, and Sausage – Tomato and Basil together make such a good flavor that will satisfy your tummy until you’re ready for your entree!
Easy Filet Mignon – Who doesn’t like just a huge slice of tender steak? Definitely not me – this is one of my fave go-to’s when I’m trying to show off my cooking skills – little do my guests know, it’s actually quite easy!
Easy Chicken Francese – This Chicken Francese is perfect for a cooking date! My boyfriend and I love making it together.
Easy Buttery Broiled Lobster Tails – While Lobster might sound super fancy, this recipe is actually the easiest entree to make that I’ve listed! Impress, don’t stress!
Standing Rib Roast for Two – If Filet Mignon isn’t your thing, you can also try Prime Rib! Fortunately, I have a recipe for how to make a whole standing rib roast that feeds 2, rather than 8+ like most recipes.
Easy Coconut Chicken Curry with Potatoes – Another fun cooking date recipe! I’m giving you fair warning though, that the coconut curry aroma will make you pretty hungry while you’re waiting for it to cook!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Canadian Bacon – Skip the plain roasted brussels sprouts, and add some canadian bacon to the side!
Roasted Root Vegetables – If you’re opting for meat, veggies will always go super nicely with any slab of steak!
Sautéed Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, Garlic – This side will go with anything and the bacon, onion and garlic really adds a delicious flavor to the cabbage.
Oven Roasted Asparagus – Highly suggest something super easy to make on the side if you’re opting to make a more difficult entree.
Buttery Oven Roasted Mushrooms – Another easy peasy, yet flavorful side dish idea – my boyfriend loves mushrooms (and hates all the other veggies), so this is always a good idea for me.
Paleo Mexican Chocolate Pudding with Bacon Hearts – Bacon again! You can have some bacon in your dessert, and it goes very well with this Mexican Chocolate Pudding!
Paleo Cherry Brownies – These brownies are made with fresh cherries and makes sure that it isn’t dry.
Paleo Coconut Caramel Brownies – Another brownies recipes, this time with coconut and caramel – yum!
Mini Paleo Chocolate Cake (with Ramekins) – This one takes a little more work, but is delicious and impressive to the eyes! Also, look how cute they are – the trick? They’re made in ramekins!
Paleo Mounds Candy – Perhaps that all sounded too heavy because you will just have had so much food… then this Paleo Mounds candy is the perfect little treat for you!
Pin for later!
