“I always romanticized going out for Valentine’s Day — making reservations months in advance, getting all dressed up and going to dinner with that special someone,” she says. “Except the one year that I actually did that, we still waited in line for over an hour, and that was with reservations!”
She shares her menu for the perfect skip-the-steakhouse dinner at home: “Super garlicky surf and turf cooked just the way you like it and all your fun fix-ins: creamy spinach, crispy potatoes, and the easiest cheesecake of your life to finish your night — I wouldn’t have Valentine’s Day any other way!”
This strawberry thyme prosecco is the perfect choice for the two of you to enjoy before dinner. “It’s sweet, bubbly, and refreshing, with just the perfect amount of strawberries, thyme, limoncello, and prosecco,” Rhee says.
Strawberry cheesecake for dessert? Yes, please! Rhee says that by making this cheesecake in the Instant Pot you eliminate those cracks that can appear in the top of oven-baked cheesecake. “It’s so creamy, rich, and smooth,” she says.
Pro tip: Make your cheesecake a day ahead of time so it can refrigerate and chill overnight.
