1. Invest in Wine Glasses

2. Cold Open

Say what you will about Jamie Oliver, but this is about as good of a round up of creative, easy and fun salads as we have ever seen. Make one of those or go with our simple bruschetta.

3. Candles + Music = Good Vibes

Candlelight and a chill music will make food taste better. You know what songs she likes, but we like going foreign or live. Don’t overlook throwing on a full live album, jazz or whatever Van Morrison does is nice. Or try someone like Federico Aubele, a talented singer-songwriter from Argentina. Sometimes not understanding the words is relaxing and creates flow. Or ignore the above and just play tunes from her Spotify, even better…

She might still want a nice dinner out, but a brunch or breakfast is a nice gesture from scratch.

6. Cook Something With A Story

7. The Most Crowd-Pleasing Dessert We Know

Need nice mallows? Wondermade.
