As many of you know, I LOVE CHOCOLATE !!! But you already knew that didn’t you?

With Valentine’s Day on Friday why go out for dinner? The restaurants are going to be ridiculously busy, not to mention expensive. We don’t go out for dinner for Valentine’s. Instead I make a nice dinner and dessert. It is much more romantic and intimate to spend the evening at home.

Put out a nice table cloth, maybe candles, or have a picnic on the floor. I usually bbq steak, but we have had so much snow this year that I can’t get to my bbq. So I will pick from one of my favourites.

Grain Free Cabbage Rolls

Sweet Beef and Veggie Stir Fry 

Chicken Wings or Ribs with Honey Garlic Sauce

Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Meat Lasagna

Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Or pick one of your favourites to make. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Just spend the time together!

The best part is to make a great dessert!!!

Lava Cake with Chocolate Sauce

I have frozen these. Defrost, warm slightly in microwave or 250 oven for five minutes and cover with sauce.

  1. As soon as I move on to another stage of the ACD diet, I’m going to have to try these yummy looking treats. I’m making a recipe from my past sugar and dairy-filled life for guests this weekend, but because of the ingredients I’ve already shopped for, I will be strong.

    Do you have any suggestions for dairy-free dark chocolate? Thanks for sharing.
