@Bostongrl25: Lobster ravioli in a cream sauce? That’s our favorite! 

I also usually make a chocolate soufflé for Valentine’s Day dessert. It’s kind of become a tradition.

I’m all about Italian food on V-day.  Some kind of delicious meat sauce and pasta for the entree and you could do a bruschetta for an app.

Skinny taste has a delicious recipe for a chicken sausage crock pot sauce that is amazing.  Let us know what you pick!

I think that I am going to do pizza with heart shaped pepperoni :)

If you like seafood, one of my favorites is baked swordfish drizzled with olive oil and topped with chopped olives and capers.

my only advice, allrecipes.com.  I’m a horrible cook, but every time I want to make a nice meal I just get stuff from there.  They have special holiday sections too, I’m sure they have valentines day.

Salmon with dill is delicious and pretty simple to make.

We like to make seafood with Elizabeth sauce – the restaurant we jacked the recipe for makes it over grouper, but I saute up some shrimp and toss it in the sauce. It’s kind of a white sauce/Old Bay mixture we eat over herbed rice with pine nuts and parmesan cheese.

Ooo for dessert you could always do chocolate covered strawberries. Melt chocolate, dip strawberries, set on wax paper, chill in fridge, and enjoy!

I think I am making a mushroom risotto topped with seared scallops and roasted asparagus.

Baguette and hot roasted red pepper and feta dip to start w/ something chocolate for dessert.
