5 Recipes for a Cosy Date Night at Home.

23 October Ayesha Farhad 46 Comments

You have to admit. Although there is thrill, excitement, and fun in dressing up and going on a date somewhere out, NOTHING beats a cosy date night at home, whether it is on the sofa with the fire on or on the table.

I love cooking soulful food. Something that hits home and just makes your insides warm! But for date nights, I need something that is sophisticated yet easy to cook! And here are some amazing recipe ideas that will make an instant hit with your partner! Or you both can cook in the kitchen together, make a proper date night out of it and marvel at your creations while you jump right in!

1. Chicken Parmigiana.

No date night is complete with a good chicken recipe! You can even serve this with a bowl of pasta or serve it with some chips and salad! Find the recipe here.

2. Chicken Paprika Stroganoff.

This is easily one of those dishes where you both can sit on the sofa, turn on netflix and enjoy the food with crappy reality tv or a good movie for a change. Find the recipe here.

3. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries.

Now, obviously, no date night is complete without dessert and what is a dessert that doesn't give Godiva a run for their money? Healthy and yummy, cheesecake stuffed strawberries have to be my favourite. They are quick and easy to make and are literally devoured in on single sitting! Find the recipe here.

4. Khao-soi soup.

If you aren't big on having chicken, then you can definitely try out the vegan khao-soi soup! Its healthy and a bowl full of yummy goodness! There is nothing like snuggling on a cold winters night and slurping up a bowl of this soup! Find the recipe here.

5. Brown Butter Scallops with Parmesan Risotto.

Now, this recipe has been featured on BuzzFeed so imagine how yummy it must be! This dish definitely gives a fancy restaurant vibe that you can devour at home haha! This recipe has a touch of white wine in this but since I know, most of my readers are non-alcoholic, you can most definitely skip out the white wine! You can find the recipe here.

There is an absolute joy in food that is cooked together with love and a little bit of squabble over how much salt and chili to add. I am honestly one of those people who would rather stay at home in comfy sweats and have a scrumptious dinner when the kid is asleep and just watch good television with my other half.

  1. Okay, those strawberries look dangerously delicious! Meanwhile, I think I might give that Chicken Parmigiana a go. Unfortunately, I think it will only be me and my dog who'll enjoy it during a cosy night at home.... no hot dates in the planner!

  2. It’s sometimes a dilemma to decide what to cook for the evening meals. I always want to cook fresh food for my family so I cook daily and that’s why get out of options at times. These are some great ideas, I especially love the idea of chicken parmigiana.

  3. Date night is something that rarely happens in our home (4 kids one of them is always around) But we are big soup eaters, especially during the fall and winter months so I am looking forward to trying to make Khao-soi soup. Fingers cross it taste as good as the picture looks.

  46. Thinking About Buying? Know Your Credit Score

    Knowing your credit score or getting a recent copy of your credit report is one of the first steps that you can take toward knowing how ready you are to start the home buying process.

    Make sure all the information listed on your report is accurate and work to correct any mistakes. The higher your credit score, the more likely you will be to receive a better interest rate for your mortgage, which will translate into more ‘home for your money.'

    Many potential buyers believe that they need a 750 FICO® Score or higher to be able to purchase a home. The truth is that according to Ellie Mae’s Origination Report, over 53% of loans were approved with a FICO® score under 750 last month!

    Here are some tips for improving your credit score:
    Make payments, including rent, credit cards, and car loans, on time.
    Keep your spending to no more than 30% of your limit on credit cards.
    Pay down high-balance credit cards to lower balances, and consider balance transfers to free up credit.
    Check for errors on your credit report and work toward fixing them.
    Shop for mortgage rates within a 30-day period — too many spread-out inquiries can lower your score.
    Work with a credit counselor or a lender to improve your score.
    Once you know your score, your next step will be finding a lender and getting pre-approved for a mortgage. Doing this will ensure that you know your budget before you start looking for your dream home.
