Romantic Scotland: 14 Ideas for February 14th

Although I dislike Valentine’s Day, for the commercial scheme it is, I am still a romantic and have a few suggestions of what to do that are not nauseatingly sweet. Whether you’re looking to reignite the spark, woo a new flame, or just go on a wee adventure with the one you love, Scotland has many romantic spots perfect for this special occasion.

Valentine’s Day Menu: Dessert

Now that we’ve covered what to cook for Valentine’s Day dinner, we can get to the best part of the meal: dessert. It’s a universal truth that nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like chocolate and wine. While a box of truffles and a bottle of red make great additions to any Valentines Day meal, this year for dessert try something new and combine the two in a decadent Red Wine Chocolate cake. It’s the perfect combo of these truly romantic ingredients, and while it will taste amazing, the best part is that it couldn’t be easier to make.

Valentine’s Day Menu: Dinner

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to appreciate all of the love in your life, and whether you’re celebrating with a significant other or a group of girlfriends, what better way to celebrate than over dinner. If your love language is food then the options of what to cook on Valentines Day are endless, but in my opinion there is only one dish sure to warm the hearts of everyone involved: pasta. Since this is a special occasion, skip the simple weeknight pasta routine and make something a little more decadent and perfectly warming for a cold February night.
