Everyone has a different idea of what makes a dinner romantic. Some folks think seafood, other's beef or chicken and vegetarian's have their own ideas too. Should it be spicy or mustardy… maybe something in a wine sauce… it's hard to say?

Here are a few recipes from this blog and other bloggers that participate in our Foodie Friday Linky. Hopefully these meals will help you decide on a great dinner for you and that special someone for Valentine's Day.
