A Steakhouse Dinner at Home

February 11, 2013

7 Valentine's Menus are coming your way this week -- for every scenario, whether you're wooing a first date or boycotting romance altogether.

No heart-shaped desserts allowed. Follow the action and share your stories at #NoMoreBadValentines.

The steaks are nigh and the stakes are high. This week, take the pressure off by preparing a steakhouse-worthy meal at home. Sure, you'll have to do the dishes, but it's a small price to pay for the assurance that there won't be any amorous strangers leaning into your bread basket.
