Here are some recipes with an alcoholic kick to keep you warm this winter! (Sure, the alcohol may cook out, but we can still imagine, right?)
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 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.
Dinner parties are incredibly popular in St Andrews, so it’s good to have a few signature dishes up your sleeve that you can prep on short notice. Excluding the risotto, these dishes can all be made ahead and kept refrigerated until needed – saving a lot of last minute kitchen stress.
