Happy Valentines Day!!  Every year, my "hubby" and I ask each other how we want to spend this romantic holiday, and every year, we both just sort of shrug our shoulders and say "just hang out at home, I guess." Well, even though it may sound boring, I personally love a good night in, and so a quiet dinner for 2 is right up my alley!  But, to make sure that our valentines dinner isn't just like any dinner at home, a bit of effort is required!  And so, for all you couples out there (or friends as well, for that matter), here are my 8 "ingredients" required, for a low key, but valentines day worthy, dinner at home! 1. Grab some colourful flowers from your market and 2. load up on wine and cheese, for some pre dinner nibbles!

3. Put on some music (I'm currently obsessing over Robbie William's newest swing album, Swing Both Ways) and 4. light some candles

7. Spend some time together in the kitchen, cooking some delicious pasta, and 8. finish the meal off with a cupcake (or 2!)
