If you are looking for some Valentine’s dinner ideas that the whole family can enjoy, then you have come to the right place! We have some delicious recipes that will appeal to the full range of love languages. Added bonus, you don’t even have to wait in line at crowded restaurants!
We know that many families aren’t at a stage where they can currently sneak away for a romantic dinner or fancy date night, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate the love that originally got you there!
We have 5 great recipes that you can put together for a great Valentine’s Day Dinner! Many of these can be put together with ingredients that you have on hand from the Co-Op!
Skillet Chicken Pot Pie
We know this is going to become one of those favorite recipes that the whole family will request long after your Valentine’s Day celebrations are over. With basic ingredients that include chicken breasts, your choice of vegetables, butter, flour, a little bit of milk and chicken stock, and some canned biscuits (or you can try out the baking flour in the GF Baking Variety Box to make your own), you are ready to make the perfect dish to satisfy everyone!
Creamy Tomato Basil Vegan Pasta
If you’re feeling a little fancy and want to bring out an amazing pasta dish (and want to put that GF Pasta Box to good use), this recipe can feel like a special meal right in your own home. The best part about this recipe is your house is going to smell amazing as you roast your tomatoes, onion, and garlic!
This is one of those creamy pastas that you really can’t duplicate from a jar, and you will feel like you made something truly special from scratch! This is an easy one to make a family affair of in the kitchen by having kids help with laying out the vegetables to be roasted, blending everything together, and bringing the pasta to a boil.
Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan
Chicken Parmesan is a perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! You can use some of the Co-Ops monthly staples to make crispy breaded chicken in your air fryer, boil up some pasta from the GF Pasta Box, top with some parmesan cheese and marinara sauce, and serve with a fresh Caesar salad!
You now have a homemade dinner that can be prepared without a lot of time or mess! Not to mention, staple comfort food at its best!
Marry Me Chicken
Marry Me chicken is a delicious meal that is great to mark special occasions like Valentine’s Day. With its unique flavor and rich sauce (hint: sundried tomatoes), this dish will have everyone wanting to celebrate at your house! You can use the chicken tenderloins or other endless chicken options from the Co-Op and throw in an easy side dish with your GF Pasta Box, and “VOILA!” supper is served!
Whether you are looking for a proposal or simply celebrating one from many years ago, this dish is a perfect way to bring people together!
Red Wine Braised Short Ribs
This is one of our favorite romantic recipes for a cozy night at home, but it does take a bit of prep time, so you will want to make sure you plan ahead so you can truly enjoy this main course! You can use the short ribs that come with our American Wagyu Beef Shares to make this recipe really shine!
By cooking the meat and then letting it chill overnight, it will absorb all of the flavors and textures that make this recipe so special. You can pair it with some simple sides like potatoes or green beans to create the perfect dinner date without ever leaving your own home!
