An easy to make meal plan is our focus for this holiday. Any great meal starts with an emotion or plan. Love is the key to the Valentines meal. While you maybe a great cook or just a UGH cook, We GOT THIS! I am going to help you nail this meal from start to finish!
MENU … Italian Tossed Salad, Lasagna, and Chocolate Coffee Brownie Cake
The salad is simple. You will need a bagged salad mix, a Great Italian dressing, parmesan cheese , and a your favorite Italian bread. Simple here we go…Empty Salad into a lovely decorative bowl, Sprinkle with Cheese and then some homemade croutons. Homemade Croutons: slice bread into 1 inch cubes, drizzle with Italian dressing and bake in a pre heated 375 degree oven for 7 to 10 minutes. Watch them they will crisp quickly. After you have removed them from the oven cover the top of salad and you are ready to serve. I toss the salad with Dressing before, but others prefer it ” ON THE SIDE”.
Chocolate Coffee Brownie Cake
This one is SUPER SIMPLE! You will need your favorite box cake mix. Instead of water in the mix , I substitute a Strong coffee. Add the Eggs as instructed. Another tweak to make it your special love day recipe , 1/2 cup of gourmet chocolate chips! Prepare and bake as directed. I make it in a shallow cookie sheet to get the Brownie look. Finally warm out of the oven, I brush the top with coffee and drizzle with a Rich Chocolate Syrup. Voila! Dessert is ready!
In Part 2 of the blog, We will tackle Lasagna. Like A Pro!
Anyone Can Cook, I promise! This will be a meal your family or Lover will remember, Always!
