Cozy up with these romantic dinners for two

Just because there are only two of you at home doesn’t mean that dinner means ordering pizza or snacking on hummus. With a small bit of effort, you can make something romantic. Today, we’re sharing our favorite cozy dinners for two.  We also added some bonus wine pairings.


Before a marathon show viewing

Curried Chicken with Coconut Rice from Shutterbean

When you and your honey can’t wait to spend the next four hours engrossed in a whole season of Sherlock, Mad Men or Orphan black, it’s best to eat your dinner in a bowl.  Shutterbean’s Curried Chicken with Coconut Rice is the perfect couchside dinner for plot twists and chase scenes. We like to eat it with an extra large napkin, cross-legged on the couch to make the most of our time.

  • Pair it with Lady La Femme – the bubbles will cut right through the richness of the coconut rice.


A regular Tuesday

Scallops from Williams Sonoma

Sometimes, it’s just, well, Tuesday. And for any regular Tuesday, this dish from Williams Sonoma of scallops with arugula angel hair pasta is fast, delicious and just a little luxurious (Bonus: if you have frozen scallops, most of the ingredients are already in your pantry.)


Working Late

Tortilla Pizza from Serious Eats

Whether it’s because of a big presentation or good old fashioned procrastinating, sometimes work comes home with you. When that’s the case,  this cast iron tortilla pizza from Serious Eats is just the ticket. Serve it with a ready-made Caesar salad and you can be back to your Powerpoint in 20 minutes flat.

  • After you’re done, sneak a leftover piece paired with Clos Pegase Origami  – a red wine blend with balanced tannins to pair well with the cheesy saltiness of the pizza.


When you’re celebrating

Steak Au Poivre from Zestuous

Good news comes in many forms for couples. Our favorite way to celebrate is with a special meal. So make sure that promotion, compliment or stroke of good luck is acknowledged! This romantic dish of Steak Au Poivre is delicious and can be whipped up in only 30 minutes.


This time of year is perfect for cozy dinners – and we hope we got you started.
