We searched the #BlogHealthy community for 15 stellar Date Night In dishes to make together for your next special evening in the kitchen together: 

Brined and Seared Pork Tenderloin from Food Fash // “In the theme of keeping this recipe simple with classic flavors, I created a brine with water, salt, Herbes de Provence, and sugar.
