22 Recipes for Date Night at Home!

Date Night doesn’t have to be at a restaurant to be special and delicious!  These 22 Recipes for Date Night at Home will help you plan a gourmet meal without setting foot in a restaurant!

Do you love Date Night?  Do you get excited about a chance to dress up, eat delicious food, and stare dreamily into each other’s eyes?  I do!  Sometimes, however, date night also means making a reservation, parking blocks away from a restaurant, paying to park, and handing over a credit card for obscenely expensive meals.  If the chilly winter wind has you dreading the walk to your destination, if your credit card needs a break, or if you simply want to impress your significant other with your mad-crazy cooking skills– keep reading!  These 22 Recipes for Date Night at Home will have you romancing your way through the night with decadent, gorgeous food from the comfort of your own space.

This list of at-home date dinners starts with homemade cocktails– from the spicy Rosa Picante Margarita to the sweeter Lychee French 75, these drinks will help you look terribly impressive with your bartender moves!  Next– the main attraction– dinner.   Stay vegan with Pasta Pomodoro, or break out the ‘fancy-schmancy’ seafood with ahi tuna, halibut, sea bass, or sea scallops.  Finish your meal with something sweet, and maybe even some dessert!  (This is where I pause awkwardly for my joke to register.)   From the sticky toffee pudding to the adorable heart-shaped cookies— these sweet treats will be the finishing note to a fabulously chic, and simultaneously cozy, stay-at-home date night!

    What a beautiful roundup of date night recipes! I have to laugh though because my husband and I have a “not so private joke” — date night for us is when we buy a box of Just For Men — and I color his hair!

    I love date night! And I especially love date night spent at home with comfy clothes on! While going out every now and then is fun, nothing beats staying at home and enjoying a good meal all cozied up in the warm, especially this time of year. Great collection of recipes here. I would be more than happy with any of these!!

    I love this recipe round up – what great inspiration for a date night! My sample menu from these choices would include the Rosa Picante Margarita, Tomato Soup to start, Crusted Sea Bass as the entree, and finished with those adorable heart-shaped Butter Cookies. Thanks for the fabulous ideas!
