If you decide to stay home for date night or just want to impress your spouse, I got you covered!

I gathered dinner recipes (some of them copycat ones from popular restaurants) around five different themes.

I looked for awesome meals that would cost a pretty penny if you went out to eat them, but are affordable if made at home so you don’t have to sacrifice quality.

Steakhouse Classic

We’ve learned that minimal seasoning and a good cut of meat makes all the difference with steak dinners.

Costco has some great deals on rib-eyes – they’re thick and absolutely delicious.

Seafood Delight

I’m a beach girl, so I love to grab some awesome seafood whenever we visit family in Virginia.

Dessert

If you’re outside and the meal has you filled up, you can skip dessert and have a mojito (or nojito) instead to cool off.

Night In Lamb Chops

Sometimes the weather dictates that dinner at home would be best.

Make the most of it with this filling meal as you two watch a few episodes of a show on Netflix or Hulu Plus while sipping on your favorite beer (I would drink a Belgian dubbel).

Delicious and Easy Stew

Admit – sometimes you just don’t want to be in the kitchen. For those days, one of your best friends is a crockpot. With the stew being so hearty you can skip an appetizer.

Comfy Foods

I love getting a pork shoulder done forget togethers. It’s easy to make and there is plenty to go around.
