Gorgeous and easy-to-assemble, a cheeseboard of your favorite charcuterie, cheese, and nibbles is the perfect not-too-heavy start to a romantic night.

Delectable, easy, and oh-so-romantic, a fondue platter is the perfect dessert to share with your valentine. This decadent chocolate dip is quick to make, and doesn’t even require a fondue pot.

They’re cute, they’re kitschy—what more could you want for a casual Valentine’s Day dinner? These heart-shaped pizzas are easy to make with the help of pre-made pizza dough—and they’re even more fun to make with when your favorite person is helping out.
