One of our first dates was shopping together at Whole Foods, admiring the displays and inspecting the produce for our meal that night. We settled on making a salad and roasting a chicken together, with some fresh strawberries and whipped cream for dessert. Cooking together with someone you love (or like very much) is one of life's simplest pleasures!

For our first Valentine's day together, my husband of nearly-twenty years made a beautiful and delicious apples flambe with vanilla ice cream. I thought it was SO fancy and romantic. I hope someday he will make it again. Maybe to celebrate our 20th anniversary?

I just came from the Whole Foods store opening in Katy, TX. I went for 3 reasons. First, get to know the store, 2nd to look for deals and 3rd to buy the ingredients for my Valentine jello hearts. I got organic sweetened condensed milk and cherry jell dessert from Natural Desserts, beside my regular groceries . Since my husband lost his job few months ago, we have had very hard times as family with 2 small boys. But as a mom and wife I need to be strong and keep the love that we have. So, no money for a fancy dinner, instead, I am making beautiful Valentine Jello Hearts recipe I found on internet but I transformed it in a healthier one with no artificial ingredients.

I believe that I've discovered the "Elixir of Love" in my osso buco recipe. Back in 1989 I met a devastatingly charming German architect while working at the Pacific Design Center. Head-over-heels-enamored with my German prince, I concocted a magic potion of saffron, orange peel and enough garlic to sink a battleship. When I served the dish, the heady aromas wafting from the plate were enough to have him propose marriage the next day. I serve my "Elixir of Love" each year on our anniversary--22 times at last count!

On our very first date, we were both graduate students and did not want to spend a lot of money going out to eat. Instead, we cooked eggplant parmesan... three years later we are getting married and that will be one of the dishes at our wedding :)

One New Year's Eve I cooked up a batch of slow-cooked pulled pork with sriracha and fresh cherries, plus some polenta, green beans with a vinegarette and candied butternut squash for me and my honey!

Spinach lasagna. My husband says the critique he made of this dish many years ago made me the cook I am today.

My husband saw me pouting during a random PMS time. He asked me what was wrong and I explained to him all I wanted was a cookie ice cream sandwich with mint chocolate chip ice cream. My husband knew I was pouting because I have to eat gluten free and I was thinking this wish was impossible. He went to the store, got all the ingredients including my most favorite brand of mint ice cream, then came home and baked gluten free chocolate chip cookies. He then added the ice cream, made it all nice, smooth, and presentable....then made me cry. I will never let him go. <3

My now husband grew up eating lots of processed foods. He constantly made fun of me for buying what he thought back when we first started living together was too much produce. One day I had enough and made him tomato sauce from scratch just like my Italian relatives raised me on. He said that was the day he knew he wanted to marry me....and never looked back to processed "food".

I call this meal the boyfriend maker. I rub salmon with brown sugar and marinate it with orange juice and zest, and then serve it grilled with a pineapple orange (sometimes mango) salsa usually over a rice pilaf or a salad. Then I make a kick-butt trifle for dessert with store bought angel-food cake soaked with cointreau amaretto and/or frangelico's, layered with jam, fruit, and whipped topping. As long as you let the trifle soak for awhile it's all good and alcohol-y and tasty. (Must be 21+!)

I remember the time I made homemade pickles for my pickle-loving man's birthday. We have since married, so I think that was a conquest!
