Lover's Beef Burgundy Filet

Rating: 4.5 stars 177
One must be very careful who this is prepared for. Like a magic love potion, it brings out the lover in ANYone. Through trial and error, I learned very quickly not to prepare this for a mere 'casual date' UNLESS you want that 'casual date' to become 'more'....

Also great for barbecues! The succulent meat together with this summer fruit complement each other surprising well! A great idea for something new. Serve steaks over mashed potatoes.

Instant Pot® Penne alla Vodka

Rating: 5 stars 1
This is the perfect comfort food on a busy night! The whole thing comes together in one pot in about 45 minutes. It's a super affordable hearty meal created from pantry staples. Great with a glass of wine. Garnish each serving with Parmesan and fresh flat-leaf parsley.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Rating: 5 stars 1599
This recipe for lamb chops is a favorite in my house. It is an easy and quick recipe for two people (we eat two chops each). Rosemary and thyme give it great flavor. If you double the recipe, remember that the sauce will take longer to reduce.

Easy Garlic-Lemon Scallops

Rating: 4.5 stars 586
Scallops sauteed in butter and garlic will melt in your mouth. Lemon juice gives it a nice kick.

Easy Yet Romantic Filet Mignon

Rating: 4.5 stars 260
This recipe is very simple and very delicious also. I can prepare it, and I am a 14 year old boy! This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and only a bit longer in the broiler. This goes good with some mashed potatoes with butter and green beans with lemon squeezed on top. This is good, trust me!
