I love this idea of surf and turf. We never go out for Valentines Day either. My heart would swoon for these scallops
Juicy tenderloin steaks are marinated in a flavorful coffee marinade and then topped with a simple yet elegant scallop tarragon cream sauce.

Thank you, +Christie Daruwalla ! :) It is so much less stressful to stay in, if you ask me. And that scallop sauce was amazing!

I am totally in it for the food too.  There are recipes I only make that one day.  I have to say adding roasted garlic to buffalo sauce is brilliant!  Two fantastic flavors combined.
Perfectly breaded & fried chicken nuggets are tossed in a flavorful & spicy sauce in these Roasted Garlic Boneless Buffalo Wings.

Ahhhhh... thanks, +Christie Daruwalla ! The roasted garlic really does take this Buffalo sauce to a whole other level of tastiness. :)

This is my kind of breakfast.  All I  need are biscuits and gravy and I am in heaven.
Moist & fluffy potato biscuits are topped with cheese curds, a homemade bacon gravy, and crispy bacon in this Potato Biscuits & Bacon Gravy Poutine.

I know, +Christie Daruwalla ! :) How can you ever go wrong with biscuits and gravy?? Especially when there is bacon and cheese curds involved!

We have done a pretty good job of making family dinners a priority although lately we have been lazy about sitting at the table.  Need to get back to that.  It is so important for kids.  I am sure my family would be running to sit at the table if this delicious chowder was waiting for them.
This creamy Parmesan Chicken Corn Chowder with its hearty potatoes, roasted chicken, and the addition of Parmesan cheese takes the traditional corn chowder to a whole other level of deliciousness.

I have found that when we actually sit at the table (and not around the television) we actually TALK more, +Christie Daruwalla . lol! :) We don't always make it to the table every evening, but we have definitely been making it happen more often lately.

We love couscous.  It is such a fun side dish.  Sounds like it goes perfectly with your roasted chicken.
Selam...Merhaba from Turkey.... Have you heard pearl couscous? Have you eat it before? Also calls Ptitim in Hebrew, other calls Israeli couscous. In some countries calls mograbieh/ moghrabieh or giant couscous or fregola. ...

I am absolutely drooling over this dessert.  I adore cherries and chocolate together.
This ooey, gooey Cherry Cordial Chocolate Skillet Cookie is the perfect dessert for two.

We always stay home too.  Who wants to go out for an overpriced meal which is usually subpar.  I'd rather go out the weekend before or after.  This gorgeous cocktail will make staying at home even more fun.

We have eaten here a number of times now both at the hibachi side and sushi side. The service is always friendly (especially Harry) and he always remembers what we like to drink and that we like their incredible chili paste. The Manager, Mark, walks around quite a bit making sure everyone is happy with the food and service. The food has been excellent. We have enjoyed the hibachi and especially love the sushi. They have a good selection of rolls. The fish is always fresh and good quality. This is the best restaurant in Dacula.
