Make your Valentine's Dinner entirely in the crockpot (except for the salad, of course - and the toasted nuts) and come home to find your dinner ready to eat. It's just as good as having a chef cook your dinner, except you have to clean up. Oh well.

The toasted nuts and fruit salad can be made ahead of time, so all you have to do is serve the food and eat. You do need three crockpots for this menu; but you really should have that many anyway.

Easy Crockpot Valentine's Dinner Menu

  • Rosemary Toasted Mixed Nuts
    These fragrant toasted nuts have the best combination of flavors and texture. Serve them with some champagne or a glass of white wine.
  • Crockpot Beef Stroganoff
    This is one of my favorite crockpot recipes of all time. The sweet and tender baby carrots complement the rich and savory beef and onions. It's also healthier than traditional Stroganoff because of that addition.
  • Crockpot Wild Rice Pilaf
    You can serve the Stroganoff over egg noodles or plain cooked rice, but this easy pilaf adds a special touch for a special dinner.
  • Coconut Fruit Salad
    Either make this salad ahead of time, or mix it at the last minute. It only takes about two minutes to make.
  • Crockpot Chocolate Mess
    This luscious pudding cake is the perfect end to a romantic dinner. Top with ice cream or whipped cream for a decadent finishing touch.
