A Romantic Dinner For Two: Cooking An Easy And Delicious Meal With Your Significant Other

By Sarah Hunt, AZFB Communications Intern


Cooking with your significant other can be a fun and romantic way to spend a date night or celebrate an anniversary or Valentine’s Day. But if you spend too much time trying to follow a fancy, 20-ingredient recipe that takes a few hours to make, it’s just going to end up being a stressful, frustrating, and not fun experience. I think this is the reason why most couples prefer to go out to eat: cooking a nice meal can be intimidating!
