Valentines Day dinner

Do you cook Valentine's Day dinner at home instead of going out? What dishes and desserts do you make to show your love for your family or your significant other?

With the current combination of COVID-19 and snowstorms every other week, you can be forgiven for waiting to make Valentine's Day plans.
