Here’s how to make Valentine’s Day last all year long!  

Our friends at Food & Wine reveal how to have a date night experience that you will not soon forget. So, cozy up in your new Lennar Tristate home and read on to learn how to make your significant other swoon!

Home is where the heart is

Not every great dinner has to involve reservations or even travel, especially if you feel like cooking. There’s plenty of recipes to pick from, but if, say, you plan on picking up a heart-shaped Le Creuset for the occasion, Food & Wine Test Kitchen manager Kelsey Youngman says that as far as dinners that will hold that vascular Valentine’s shape, savory bread pudding is the way to go.

If you’re more inspired by the acclaimed cinematic romance of Best Picture nominee Call Me By Your Name, you are all but obligated to whip up some Baked Stuffed Peaches with Saffron Zabaglione, because, well, you know why. And whatever you make, it’s easy to pair with homemade Red Sangria. Or, if you’d rather go all-in on a lovely wine, Round Pond’s “The Vow” Cabernet Sauvignon is a natural fit.

But let’s be real. If you really want to do something different, how can you not start with a full bouquet… of beef jerky? Yes, these beef jerky bouquets are available in both “flower” and “rose” varieties. Combine them with a box of See’s Candies (go heavy on the Scotchmallow Hearts) for a snack-fest to remember.

Off the Beaten Path

If you want to have a unique dinner outside the house, though, there’s no shortage of options. If you or your significant other are into small, square burgers, well, head to OpenTable right this second.

Alternatively, you can round up a crew of friends, stop by the mall, take a look around, and appreciate that you’re no longer a teenager when you to pick up some of Auntie Anne’s pretzels or Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

For those in Los Angeles, you could also lean all the way into one particular aspect of the holiday at Fig Restaurant. New Yorkers looking to go in the opposite direction, on the other hand, should head to the Harvey at The Williamsburg Hotel.
