Romantic Family Dinner with Buitoni Sauce and Tres Leches Cake

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s tradition for me to “wine and dine” my sweet Valentines….. all five of them.

Why make a romantic dinner for just two when I have my little ones to celebrate love with.

There’s just one problem.

Who has time to spend hours in the kitchen making a gourmet meal? With a little creative flair, this working mom needs a bit of help in the kitchen. A quick stop by Walmart on the way home got me all of the ingredients for a fun and romantic family dinner including a small bouquet of red roses.

Romantic Family Dinner

Creating a romantic family dinner can be both fun and simple. I start by setting the table with some elegant and fun Valentine’s decor. Personally, I don’t do paper products and don’t mind bringing out all of my fine serving dishes and candelabra.

For dinner, I’ve prepared some pasta with broccoli and chicken but want some gourmet appetizers on the table. I picked up the Buitoni sauces in both Alfredo and Marinera for a “dipping” dinner idea. I prepared some meatballs, cheese sticks and vegetables for my sweet Valentine’s to dip in the warmed sauces.

Sweets

And now for the sweet part. Tonight was my first time making Tres Leches cake and I discovered two things. First, it’s not as hard as I thought it was going to be thanks to Nestle Tres Leches Cake Kit. And second, my family thought it was one of the most delicious desserts I’ve ever made.

It does need a little time in the refrigerator for the cake to soak up the sweet milk, so I suggest making the cake the day before.
