Cooking for your new date? Get some inspiration for easy dishes that guarantee to impress

Every relationship has its milestones - the first kiss, meeting the friends, taking a trip together. Then there's the first time you invite your date over for dinner, and  serving up your trusted weeknight spag bol recipe just won't cut it.

Even if you're a culinary whiz, you might feel the pressure of whipping up a three-course dinner worthy of a Michelin Star - or at least worthy of not coming fourth place in an episode of Come Dine With Me.

Well, you can spend hours pouring over recipe books, or you can check out our favourite new cookery website Tasty on BuzzFeed. Their speeded up instructional videos show you how to concoct something delicious in the blink of an eye. Happily, they're simple enough for even a novice to follow, while having plenty of pizazz to impress. A few of our favourites are below. 

STARTER: BAKE-IN-15 RATATOUILLE BOATS


MAIN: SUPER QUICK PAPRIKA SHRIMP PASTA


DESSERT: PREPARE-IN-ADVANCE NO-BAKE WHITE CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE
