With the best of intentions, you've probably tried to go out for a nice dinner on Valentine's Day -- and ended up with a pricey prix fixe that included a random selection of aphrodisiacs, eaten on a table with too many rose petals and scented candles. Not that we're speaking from experience or anything.

The good news is you can achieve the mood you were hoping for -- and avoid walking in your uncomfortable pair of heels -- when you cook your Valentine's Day dinner instead. While beef is the original romantic dinner, lamb is the fancy one and the one you should choose when you're really trying to impress your loved one, your lovely friends --  or yourself.
