We have pulled some of our favorite recipes for two that are simple enough so that you aren't overwhelmed and can focus on making the day feel special. Check out or selection below!

Starters

Penja Seared Scallops

This scallop recipe for two is great for Valentine's because it's super simple, but the homemade spice blend makes it feel special - and also taste delicious! If you make the spice blend ahead, the cooking portion of the recipe will take under 10 minutes. 

Steak Tartare

Another recipe that feels special because how often do you enjoy steak tartare outside of a restaurant? Making it at home is simple enough and the addition of the OMG blend enhances the complementary familiar mustard flavors.

Gambas al Ajillo

If you don't keep a jar of Harissa Honey in your fridge already, you should. Once you have the condiment, you can make this shrimp dish in a flash. Serve it with crusty bread to soak up all the delicious shrimpy harissa honey juices on the plate.

Main Course

Bucatini Amatriciana

This Roman dish is a classic for a reason. It's simplicity honors its Italian roots. Buy the best ingredients you can and impress your significant other with a nourishing bowl of pasta. 

Ayala Lamb Chops

The Ayala blend is a testament to how simple ingredients can make a large impact if they are balanced well. Use it to make these lamb chops and serve them with a sauce like Mousa Yogurt.

Lemon & Artichoke Paella

This paella is a great option for a vegetarian or vegan main. Pumpkin, artichokes, and lemon go together surprisingly well for a flavor packed twist on the traditional Spanish dish.

Salt Baked Fish for Two

Baking fish in salt keeps it ultra tender and delicate. Plus when you take it out of the oven, it's very impressive to see. Under the bed of salt you'll find the flakiest, freshest cod of your dreams. 

Side

Potato Asparagus Salad

Always good to add a salad to a meal for health and a welcomed freshness. This one uses OMG Vinaigrette, which is like a deluxe version of a classic mustard dressing.

Something Sweet

Halva Floss Banana Split

Share dessert over a nostalgic banana split sundae. It feels romantic and playful, while the addition of Halva Floss makes it feel slightly more refined. 

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Urfa's chocolaty notes make it a wonderful addition to rich chocolate desserts. Don't let the avocado in this recipe scare you, the flavor is masked by the cocoa and it gives the dessert a luxurious texture. 

Drinks

Soixante Quinze (French 75)

A classic French 75 feels fancy and romantic. It pairs well with many of the dishes in this list, making it a great cocktail to serve alongside Valentine's dinner. 

Hibiscus Gazoz

For a non-alcoholic option, this Gazoz is refreshing, delicious, and flavorful.
