Love all of these Romantic Valentine's Day Dinner Ideas! From appetizers to mains, sides and even desserts!

Ah, sweet love.

It’s that time of year where pink and red hearts pop up all over the stores and there are giant Valentine’s Day cards for sale at nearly every cash register.

Typically my husband and I celebrate Valentine’s Day dinner at our house. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of trying to get a table at a nice restaurant can really zap the romance out of the evening. Instead I like to whip up something real fancy and special. But mostly it’s just easy and convenient and less expensive.

Appetizers:
