I went through some of the best frugal food blogs to find delicious recipes for you to cook for dinner on Valentine’s Day. These meals range from $10 to $15 for dinner and dessert per dinner. Remember, you don’t have to spend a ton on a meal to show your love!


Note: Cost is noted unless it wasn’t provided in the original recipe.

1. Skillet Chicken with Orzo and Olives

$10.03 recipe / $2.57 per serving

I'm pretty positive you can find this in some fancy-shmancy restaurant.

2. Sesame Glazed Salmon and Green Beans

$9.23 recipe / $3.08 per serving

Presentation is key!

3. Blackberry Sage Pork Chops

$6.30 recipe / $1.58 per serving

A chance for you to feign fine dining.

4. Tartiflette Pizza

Potatoes, bacon, and onion pizza. *Droooool.* Tip: Form this pizza into a heart shape!

5. Paleo Moroccan Chicken

For all my low-carb, gluten-free lovers.

6. Spinach Lasagna Skillet

Because pasta = carbs = love.

7. Pasta Carbonara

Bacon and pasta. Yum.

8. Grape, Prosciutto, and Arugula Flatbread

What a combination!

9. Homemade Sushi Rolls

$5.60 recipe / $1.40 per serving

Why are we paying those outrageous prices for sushi again?

You can't forget about dessert!

1. Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

$3.00 for 8 servings

Why so cheap?!

2. Peanut Butter S’mores Pots

$1.22 recipe / $0.61 per pot

Just because it's Valentine's Day doesn't mean you have to share. These individual treats are ideal :)

3. Homemade Crepes

$1.24 recipe / $0.18 per crepe

So easy, so fun to make, and so delicious.

4. Slow Cooker Mocha Lava Cake

There is not much that is better than warm, ooey gooey, chocolate cake.

5. Raspberry Chocolate Chip Brownies

Using raspberry chocolate chips instead of actual raspberries saves you time and money!

6. Heart-Shaped Strawberry Hand Pies

Too cute to eat. LOL, jk.

7. DIY S’mores Bar: Stovetop Style

I know I'm an adult and all, but freedom to do what I want with this sugar is a dream come true.

8. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

What is this lovey-dovey holiday without chocolate-covered strawberries??

Happy Valentine's Day!
