This starter comes from Melissa at Front Porch Gourmet, a regular contributor of great recipes. No complicated ingredients for this dish – Smoked Trout Dip. I would say it perfect for sharing. Crack open a nice dry Riesling or even a Pinot Noir, you really can’t go wrong with this one…

How about a sweet and fruity starter to your shared Valentine’s dinning experience? This recipe – Dutch Oven Pancake w/ Cranberry Orange Compote – by Shana at Shana Was Here, uses a blender, an oven and items you probably already have. Except the cranberries perhaps!  The recipe page does mention ‘brunch’ but don’t worry about that, it’s a lovely little starter!

One last thing – flowers!

Did you remember the flowers? Got them on order? If not, head over to Amazon and get organised now. Check out this page and take a look at the range of roses and related gifts. It worth doing now as getting them delivered on a Sunday will be neigh on impossible!
