Date Night Dishes for Two | Taste As You Go

I'm going to make a confession.

I am in awe of those couples who are successful in scheduling regular Date Nights. I'm even more in awe of those parents who are able to do so.

Stephen and I have attempted to carve out time for us twice since the start of the new year... and we've had to cancel our plans not once, but twice. Needless to say, it's been discouraging. Especially since the reasons for having to cancel were out of our control.

We have another Date Night on the calendar later this month, and I'm hoping our plans go out off without a hitch. Because, honestly, if we have to cancel again... I'm going to start thinking we're never going to get out of the house without our kids.

Or... we're going to figure out a way to get the kids out of the house so we can stay home and have a Date Night in. That way we can cook dinner for two and whip up a decadent dessert to enjoy while watching a movie.

Do you and your sweetie prefer a cozy night in over making plans to go out? Keep reading for these 26 Date Night Dishes that you can make in your own kitchen.
