Lovey-Dovey Valentine’s Day Menus

Show your sweetheart how much you care by cooking up something delicious. Here are five Valentine’s Day menu ideas from our culinary pro and hopeless romantic, Molly Siegler.

Valentine’s Day is one of my very favorite holidays – this might relegate me to the sappy minority, I know. And I don’t care. There’s certainly nothing wrong with chocolates, flowers and hearts. Plus it’s just one of those freebie days to be lovey-dovey with family, friends, coworkers and strangers alike.

Remember, as long as it’s red or pink (and sometimes purple) and/or heart-shaped, it’s Valentine’s Day-worthy. A pink paper clip holding together a stack of favorite recipes, a rich red sauce for family pizza night, roasted purple cabbage wedges…

Bonus time – this Valentine’s Day we’re having a two-day sale that tacks on a lobster tail if you buy a dry aged steak.

Here are five menus to guarantee Valentine’s Day deliciousness.
