Beer Bread Bowls I discovered about five years ago that baking bread from scratch is a huge outlet to manage my stress and anxiety.  It was an accidental discovery.  I happened to be at a local farmer’s market where someone was selling homemade bread and I was overcome with a desire to make my own.…Continue Reading

I can’t remember the last time we actually left the house and went out for Valentine’s Day.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter No-Bake Cheesecake Cups

I can’t imagine why.  I mean, what could possibly be more romantic than fighting for space in a crowded restaurant that you waited more than 20 minutes past your reservation time to be seated, get rushed through your meal to make room for the next group of Hallmark inspired diners, only to be presented with a $300 bill at the end of the whole ordeal.

In all honesty, we used to go out for Valentine’s Day.  Our transition to staying in didn’t happen because we planned it to.  We actually ended up here because of our lack of planning and the stress of unsuccessfully trying to make last minute reservations.

It’s now become a tradition and expectation to stay home.  The reality is that you don’t need a holiday or an expensive night out to celebrate with your sweetie.  Grab a couple of nice steaks or some giant scallops and lobster tails, open a bottle of wine, light a fire, and stay home this year.  You might start a new tradition and your bank account will thank you.

Scroll below the recipe for a list of wonderful recipes to make for a romantic night in.
