8 Romantic Dinner Ideas For Two

And Tips to help keep the Romance in the night…

Sharing a meal not only nourishes our bodies, but it provides quality time to interact. Do not underestimate how important or how sensual talking across the table can be–looking into each others faces, gazing into their eyes, enjoying your meal together. Don’t waste time driving around town and waiting on dinner reservations, or loose the mood in traffic on the way home. Have a romantic dinner at home. Whether you make it for your honey, or you get in the kitchen together and cook up some fun, enjoy the evening.

I have a collection of eight romantic dinner ideas that would perfectly set the mood for an amorous night. So, turn on some soft music, light some candles, and let your taste buds (among other things) run wild…

Here’s a few TIPS to help keep the Romance in the Night:

  • Keep your meal light. Even if you are serving something on the rich or heavy side, you can keep the portions smaller. Don’t let a food coma ruin your night.
  • Make the food playful. Serve sides or dessert you can eat with your hands, and feed each other.
  • Pre-prep as much of the dinner as you can.
  • Relax and let your feelings lead the night.
