Set the scene ~

It’s not hard to set a table for 2 in blush tones with a shabby chic flair.  Mix and match thrift store plates and layer them up boho style.  Pick up baby roses from the grocery store or Trader Joe’s, separate them out and display them singly or in small groups in vintage bottles or mason jars.  Add some winter branches or greens from the yard to round out the look.   Fold a rustic washed linen napkin, top with pretty silverware (from grandma or Goodwill) and a little leftover length of ribbon to tie it all up.

Cocktail hour ~

Rosé Wine Hot Pepper JellyThe Cardamom Rose Cocktail make a perfect pair for sipping and nibbling along with silky soft white goat cheese and crackers.

Soup or salad ~

Creamy Shrimp Bisque & Shaved Apple and Radish Salad make the question “soup or salad?” a difficult one to answer.  I say start with the soup, then move on to the salad, your Valentine deserves both.

Main course ~

My Rosé Wine Risotto is cozy yet special, perfect for any February holiday. The best part? It’s made in 6 minutes in the Instant Pot!  Want to go all out, and get some extra protein to boot?  Try my Instant Pot Lobster Risotto.

Dessert ~

With “kiss” right there in the name, Roasted Rhubarb Ladies’ Kiss Cookies are the perfect ending to a romantic meal.

    Sue, I LOVE all your recipes; I’ve pinned a lot! I still have some Black Oxford apples from this past fall that are great keepers and I now know how I’ll be using them. Thank you especially for the the tantalizing healthy recipes too! So happy I happened upon your site!
