We all have favorite family recipes, but how many favs do you have for date night? Sure, we might think pasta or steak, but here is a sampling…
That are sure to become favorites. They’re romantic, easy to cook, and perfect for serving with wine. They’re delicious too, and now is the time to break out the good dishes, crystal goblets, the real silver, light the candles, and pop the cork! I’ve taken a favorite from scallops, shrimp, steak, pork, and chicken.
If you’re into seafood, nothing says romance like scallops. Those tender, puffy clouds of goodness! In this recipe, they’re baked with a topping of butter, white wine, lemon juice, Parmesan, and seasonings. Oh my! And near the end of the cooking time, you switch to broil, adding more Parmesan and paprika to give them color and more flavor. Serve over Mashed Cauliflower or Potatoes. And don’t forget the garlic toast to lap up every last bit of the juice – yeah, it’s that good!
In a word, FABULOUS! Butter, garlic, lemon juice, honey, and seasoning make this an excellent dish for date night. And no need to spend hours in the kitchen cooking when you could be romancing. Shrimp cooks quickly, and this dish is scrumptious. Serve with rice and garlic toast to sap up the honey-lemon-garlic-butter.

This is another fabulous dinner for date night. It shouts romance and is so good! Seared chicken fillets are finished in a succulent and creamy sauce of mushrooms, butter, shallots, champagne, and heavy cream. Serve with rice pilaf and tender asparagus spears for an excellent meal you’ll want to dance to! And don’t forget the candles, please!

Pork tenderloin is always a good choice for a romantic meal, and in this instance, the pork is seared after rubbing it with a seasoning mix that includes paprika and garlic powder. A sauce consisting of cider vinegar, soy sauce, and honey is made in the same skillet as the pork. Then it’s all slow-cooked in the oven for tenderness and to develop flavors! You may even want to double the sauce ingredients because you’ll want to top everything on your plate with it!

Sometimes simpler is better. In this case, steaks are perfected by simply browning herbed butter in a pan and searing the steaks while spooning (basting) the seasoned browned butter over the top as the steaks cook. They are the juiciest and most tender steaks, full of flavor that can’t be beaten. Add a baked potato with the works and a garden salad, and you have a meal where you only need soft music and a good bottle of red!
