10 Valentine's Day Dinner Ideas

Some may say Valentine's Day is nothing but a 'Hallmark Holiday,' which is just an excuse to send a card, buy into materialist gift giving and/or a day to do something nice for your significant other. Although my husband and I don't necessarily celebrate Valentine's Day with lavish gifts, I do make an effort to prepare something delicious and extra special for dinner. Whether it's one of his favorite dishes or just a recipe using ingredients I go out of my way to use, I'm thankful he appreciates whatever I serve up... on Valentine's day or any of the 364 days of the year. If you need some ideas or inspiration on what to prepare for your loved ones, here are 10 Valentine's Day Dinner Ideas to check out...
