Make date night in special with an extra special main entree of Breaded Veal Meatballs with Vodka Sauce. If you’ve never prepared veal before, don’t worry. It is extremely easy to prepare and the cut is so lean and tender that anything you prepare will taste amazing. This recipe looks simple enough to prepare with some complex flavors that is sure to please any palate. The vodka sauce looks amazing made with Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste, oregano, garlic and pepper. It looks divine.
If you’ve not tried Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste yet, you are missing out. It is my absolute favorite way to cook and bake with vanilla, the vanilla flavor is so pure and intense that it is addicting. I promise it will make any dish you prepare that calls for vanilla extra flavorful. I just love it.
Asparagus is a lovely vegetable for date night. This Asparagus Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette
recipe looks so fresh and flavorful with a Dijon vinaigrette dressing of honey, mustard, balsamic vinegar and lemon extract.
For dessert, may I tempt you with Flourless Mocha Cake with Crème Anglaise? Chocolate is always a favorite dessert to share during date night (or any night!) and this dessert is sure to get 5 star approvals. This recipe was created by Dinner then Dessert website and looks so luscious. The dense mocha cake looks decadent and would be perfect paired with a scoop or two of Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Ice Cream if you want to go all out for your sweetie. Made with a few simple ingredients, there is nothing like pure homemade ice cream.
This menu is sure to be unforgettable and may have you and your sweetie enjoying date night at home more often. The key to amazing meals is always ingredients. You can always tell if ingredients are pure as they are more flavorful. That’s why I love cooking and baking with Nielsen-Massey pure vanillas and flavors. Their process of cold extraction slowly draws out flavors to capture them for your dining pleasures.
A pantry stocked with such flavors is sure to improve any culinary skill you may or may not already have. Check out more romantic and family-friendly dinner and dessert ideas on the Nielsen-Massey website. For more date night ideas, click here.
