A Valentine’s collaboration with Adventures in Dinner

By  | 

Well good Monday to you!! I’m tickled pink to let you in on a collaboration I’ve been working on with the yummy Adventures in Dinner. Well, she’s not yummy (well, maybe?)…her recipes are!! So, her and I worked together to bring you a Valentine’s Day table and meal that will make you swoon!!

I love this girl…all I had to do was create the table! She wrote the post and did all the work. Seriously…how sweet is she!

Be sure to pop over to Adventures in Dinner all week to get the fabulous recipes on the menu!! I know I’m going for the skewers…love anything on a stick! I think it’s from growing up going to the Minnesota State Fair. Seriously! You can get anything on a stick there! So, without any further  babbling I give you the lovely…the sweet…the complete edible (although that’s called Cannibalism and frowned upon in most societies) Jane from Adventures in Dinner!

Jane's Adventures in Dinner


Happy Almost Valentines’ Day.

I love this time of year.

Where I live we have been in the deepfreeze for months and Valentines’ is a welcome warm and a promise that spring is on its way.

It’s also an excuse to remind my husband that even in the hustle and bustle of everyday I still think he’s the Bee’s knees.

We used to go out and make a big deal about the day. We made reservations at a favourite restaurant, got especially dressed up and…

were always quite disappointed.

Restaurants are always super crowded, the food is rushed and usually not as good.

With small one we now have a new family tradition.

Family Valentines’ Night.

A special dinner that we all can love without having to find a babysitter or deal with big crowds in busy restaurants.

The amazing Janel from Nellie Bellie has created the most beautiful tablescape and menu board to go with a meal that is easy to prepare (even on a weeknight) and won’t break the bank either.

Now that’s some bloggy love.

Have you seen how talented this girl is?

I haven’t seen her do it yet but she could definately make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

Can you hardly stand how gorgeous the menu is?


Take a look at this table.

Every detail is looked after from the cheery poms right down to the fortune cookies.

I had better do well with the food.

Isn’t it even prettier in the evening?

Don’t you especially love that everything is either an easy find or using things that you have already tucked away in the cupboard, just waiting for an excuse to use.

And now for the food.

Tomorrow pop by and I’ll show you how to make these tortellini skewers in a flash.

I can’t even count the amount of times that I’ve made these for parties and they are always the first thing gone.

Wednesday, I have one pan recipe for Calabrese Chicken, yep-all your favourite salad flavours in a main course.

Vying for something particularly beautiful this Valentines’?

I guarantee that Thursday’s recipe for Maple Syrup pudding will ensure something sparkly will be waiting for you or at least everyone will be falling over themselves to do the dishes.


Once again, don’t miss the recipes!! Go!
