Your dinner menu each month has been thoughtfully prepared for you by our friend and blogger Marina. As a wife and Mommy to two beautiful children (Marina just had her second baby!) things can get messy, but only the good kind of messy!
We would LOVE for you to share pictures enjoying your dinner! Tag #nightinboxes & #marinamakeseats
LET LOVE GROW
This month’s menu centers around delicious vegetables, herbs and grains, and my hope is that it will symbolize the love and dedication that goes into growing in your relationship with each other. Happy Eating!
I was born at the beginning of the greatest decade ever - the 90s!! This month, I’ve prepared a bunch of dishes that will take your tastebuds back in time, including homemade Hot Pockets and Dunkaroos. Happy Eating!
KEY TO MY HEART
While I love decadent food, I also find a lot of enjoyment putting healthy twists on classic dishes. This month, I’ve prepared a health-conscious (still romantic!) menu for you to enjoy together. Happy Eating!
Each year, I look forward to the first snowfall. Watching the snow glide down from the sky brings me so much peace - it’s so beautiful and delicate. Of course, while watching the snow, I have to have a hot drink and warm meal on hand. Priorities!
This month’s menu includes some of my favorite winter staples to keep you and your taste buds warm: a hot toddy, creamy pancetta with sweet pea gnocchi, parmesan and garlic crostini and homemade peppermint pudding. These recipes are some of my favorites - each filled with so much flavor. I’d love to see how your food turns out, so please feel free to share pictures on social media; don’t forget to use the hashtag #marinamakeseats. Happy eating!

FALL IN LOVE
Happy Fall! This month’s menu screams comfort and you’ll absolutely want to try these out while enjoying your activities. Below are recipes for an apple whiskey drink, harvest salad with fig balsamic dressing, chicken pot pie topped with cheddar & thyme biscuits, and sweet apple slices. I
This month’s recipes are the dreamiest foods to me because they’re delicious, filling and comforting. The menu includes a glass of rose, a panzanella salad (dreamy because it’s a salad that includes bread), a feta pesto pasta and light and airy coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate. Drooling yet?
MINUTE TO WIN IT
It’s always a good idea to pair games with good food! This month’s recipes include a refreshing strawberry limeade drink, layered taco dip, baked sweet potato fries and a flavorful chicken and green chile burger. Super easy and yummy eats to snack on during your date night!
I’ll start this off by saying, camping is not my thing, but my husband on the other hand can’t get enough of it. One of these days he’s going to drag me with him and thanks to this month’s box I’ll have some good camping food to look forward to. I crafted these recipes based on some of the foods he enjoyed growing up with while roughing it outdoors. I hope this menu takes you and your taste buds on an adventure!
EASY LIKE SUNDAY MORNING
Brunch is by far my favorite meal. If I could, I would enjoy sweet and savory breakfast food every day! Putting this menu together was super fun - it's a mix of healthy and not-so-healthy because you have to indulge a little at brunch. Happy eating!
While I am a very fast eater, every now and then I like to slow down, because food is best consumed when using all of my senses. I know it sounds bizarre, but when’s the last time you really listened to the crunch of a food or felt its texture before eating it? Very rarely do we take time to fully experience the food we’re eating.
This menu was created for you to do just that, and it’s my hope that you’ll consume food in a totally new way! To continue with the theme of this month’s box, I highly recommend drinking the wine (or drink of your choice) and eating the cheese/meat platter blindfolded to enhance your experience. Cheers!
THE STORY OF US
To me, there’s nothing better than remembering your favorite moments with your spouse, family and friends while eating good food. The recipes I’ve prepared for you this month are meant to be enjoyed while recalling memories and pastimes that contribute to who you are today. I hope they bring you lots of comfort as you walk down memory lane. Cheers!
DELIVERED WITH LOVE
The recipes I’ve prepared for you this month are based on European classics but with a bit of a modern twist. It’s through them, I hope to bring you to the cobblestone streets of France for the night.
