Date Night Ideas

I saw the above ideas for a cooking class on Sur la table for Date Night. I love their ideas and I found recipes for each one of the ideas. Each of the ideas is pinned on a Date Night board that I created on my Pinterest. But my Pinterest got all messed up and anything I save goes somewhere, but not on my original account.

I found the Sur la table cedar planked salmon recipe and that will come up if you google it using “sur la table cedar planked salmon recipe”. The whipped potatoes with white cheddar and chives recipe will also come up on a google search and it is a Taste of Home recipe. It was 5 stars and looks good to me.

The vanilla creme brulee recipe will come up with a google search using “sur la table vanilla creme brulee recipe”.

The tomato and arugala salad with lemon and parmesan dressing will come up with a recipe from Epicurious.

So with those recipes, you can create a Summer Celebration Date night even if you are not near a place where they have the cooking class. Maybe you can find better recipes, but I really liked those recipes. I would take a cooking class if I lived near one of the Sur la table stores. They look like a lot of fun.

Another Date Night idea that Sur la table has is the Date Night Spring French Bistro.

The mustard crusted chicken recipe is on the Sur la table website. Sounds really good to me.

Then the Chevre Cheese Soufflee is on Sur la table under “Goat Cheese Soufflee”.

Grilled asparagus is easy enough to do and I found a recipe for tarragon and chive butter. I found it using a google search.

Sur la table has a recipe for flourless chocolate cake, but a Decadent Chocolate Cake recipe that I like is the following:


7 oz. Dark Chocolate, chopped

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter

4 large eggs, separated

2 Tbsp. Sugar

1/3 c. white whole wheat flour

6 oz. Dark Chocolate, chopped

1 c. heavy cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter and flour a 10-inch round cake pan.
  3. Melt the 7 ounces chocolate and the butter in a double boiler (or in a bowl or smaller saucepan placed over a bigger saucepan of gently boiling water).
  4. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  5. Set aside.
  6. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with your Electronic Mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  7. Slowly add sugar and continue to beat until mixture is pale yellow.
  8. Fold in the chocolate mixture.
  9. Sift flour over the top and beat just until it disappears.
  10. Set aside.
  11. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.
  12. Fold half of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture.
  13. Gently fold in the remaining half.
  14. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  15. Tap pan a few times on counter to remove air bubbles.
  16. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

For the chocolate frosting, just combine the chocolate with the heavy cream over a double boiler.

I like those Sur la table cooking classes and the ideas are just awesome. So hope that you enjoy the ideas and when I get the patience, I will figure out my Pinterest so that I can get access to my original board. Then I can save from the web and it will go on my original board not a board that got created and I can’t figure out what Pinterest has done to me.
