Dinner for two at home should be easy but sometimes it’s just not. Whether you are an empty nester or you and your sweetie are celebrating Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just a special night at home, it can be a challenge. We are here to help with this collection of 15 dinner recipes for two and we have included a bonus of 5 romantic dessert recipes.
One of our challenges after the children left home was to downsize recipes and cook dinner for two. We love leftovers but after the second day, not so much. And unless we prepare recipes with the mindset of freezing a portion, freezing leftovers doesn’t work that well.
We went on a quest and asked several blogger friends for their favorite dinner recipes for two and we picked 15 of the Best Dinner Recipes for Two. Granted some of these make more but not so much that the leftovers will not be gone by the next day.
But you don’t have to be an empty nester to enjoy these recipes, one of our favorite ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, our Anniversary or a special romantic celebration was to prepare dinner at home. We could enjoy the peace and quiet (have the kids spend the night with friends or grandparents) and enjoy cooking and serving dinner together.
We also included 5 bonus recipes for a dessert because what is a celebration without dessert?
