Romantic Dinner For Two:

Here is a simple romantic dinner for two courtesy of Pierce Abernathy, BuzzFeed Tasty.  A yummy looking Herb Crusted Salmon and a one-pan Peanut Butter Brownie.  As you can and see Pierce didn’t leave anything out, he even included the type of wine that goes great with salmon.  Save this recipe for a special evening with that special person you want to impress, Lois.
