A Martha-Approved Romantic Dinner for Two
Mini chicken potpies plus molten chocolate cakes equals the perfect date night in.
‘Tis the season for cozy suppers at home! As the temperatures start dropping, nothing beats sitting down to a home-cooked meal with someone you love. Our just-released book, "Martha Stewart's Newlywed Kitchen," has ideas galore, from fast and easy weeknight dinners to casual (but still impressive!) entertaining fare. Whether you're cooking as a couple or one of you for the other, each recipe is totally doable and sure to become part of your repertoire.
Martha made two of her favorites dishes from the book on the "TODAY" show this morning: individual chicken pot pies and warm chocolate pudding cakes. Store-bought puff pastry means the pies come together in no time, and collard greens (aka the new kale!) give the otherwise classic filling a healthy boost.
Dessert is the piece de resistance -- rich, gooey molten chocolate cakes fresh out of the oven finished with scoops of vanilla ice cream. And despite the title, the book isn't just for newlyweds. As Martha says in the foreword, "In the course of compiling, testing, tasting, and photographing the many wonderful dishes within, we found it to be a book for all of us regardless of stage of live or marital status." After all, what's more universal than chicken potpie or chocolate cake??!
