Everyone knows that food tastes better when it’s made with love. If you have a romantic recipe you'd like to share, enter it in the Date Night Dinners Challenge for a chance to win a Scanpan frying pan, Kochmesser Wusthof Cooks Knife, and a custom laser-engraved cutting board! Whether you plan to pull out all the stops, or keep it simple, we want to see how you sauté, bake, sous vide, and so on.

Helping us judge this challenge is Beth Moncel of the popular food blog, Budget Bytes! Beth combines her love for food and number-crunching to show the world that cooking on a budget doesn't limit you to eating ramen noodles night after night. Check out her blog for ideas and inspiration.
