28 Romantic Recipes to Make for Someone You Love This Valentine's Day

Are you looking for Valentine's Date Night Recipes? Maybe you just want a special meal to celebrate the one you love, or for a quiet date night in. These delicious and romantic recipes are sure to make any occasion a special one!
Valentine's Day Recipes
 It is 2022 and we are in the midst of yet another new variant in this never ending pandemic. The new variant has forced restaurants to stop indoor dining and schools to switch to online learning. With restaurants closed for indoor dinning, or at reduced capacity, plans for Valentine's day need to be altered. 

Many people have decided to stay in and support restaurants by ordering take-out. The closure of schools means that I am off again, until in class learning resumes. So with our finances stretched once again, my SO and I have decided to cook a meal together and enjoy a quiet evening at home, with candles, good food and romantic comedies on Netflix. 

I decided to do a round up of recipes, perfect for a Valentine's Day Date Night in, for those who do not want to leave the comfort of our homes.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
