5 Recipes for a Cosy Date Night at Home.

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.
