Steak, Roasted Potatoes, and Green Beans
When cooking for a date, we like to keep things simple so we can focus on enjoying the company — and flirting a bit — rather than stressing out over a complicated recipe. It's hard to go wrong with pan-seared steak, roasted rosemary potatoes, and butter-glazed green beans. Watch the video to see how to make this sophisticated spin on meat and potatoes, and then print out the recipes .
White Chocolate Rocky Road
For dessert, why not save yourself some trouble and serve a make-ahead treat like white chocolate rocky road — essentially a thicker, fudge-like chocolate bark. More a technique than a hard and fast recipe, this sweet can be customized to your taste by switching up the mix-ins, though this combination of pistachios, candied cherries, and mini marshmallows is pretty hard to beat. Watch the video to learn how it's done, and then print out the recipe .
