Most Romantic Dinners for Valentines Day – Cooking Dinner at Home

‘Tis the season for lovebirds to descend on the city, where reservations are impossible to get last minute and you decide to give up and just make your S.O. (or your Tinder/Bumble/POF/whatever is the new one these days flavor of the week) some dinner at home.

Here are my top ‘romantic’ dinner ideas for Valentine’s day (OR ANY DAY) at home………

I could eat these smashed potatoes every meal of the day – they’re an easy and classic staple that boost any meal from good to great.
