That would be steak and chicken fajitas. Red, yellow and green peppers , onions sautéed with strips of chicken and steak. Made with Salsa, sour cream and cheese. I still make them for my love of 30 years.

Its funny you mention the frozen burrito thing in your blog. When i met my fiancee, he and his ex had recently ended an 8 year relationship. It wanst mutual by any means, her choice. However as we were dating the complaint i heard the most from him about her was regarding the fact that she wouldnt cook. Wether or not she knew how was unknown. He was the bread winner if you will, while during their relationship 90% of the time she didnt work. He would call home before leaving work on a daily basis to ask whats for dinner and almost ever day they ended up ordering pizza. The othernights he ended up having a frozen sandwich or sorts or a frozen pizza..All of which was always eaten while sitting infront of his computer playing games, alone. When he met me and i began cooking for him.. Making everything from scratch he made many a comment about how no one other than his mother had cooked for him, and especially not from scratch. On occasion when he jokes he will say something alon the lines of not being able to leave me because of how well i feed him. When our second son was born one comment was about how my abality to make dinner had better not change or out id go! I know he was only joking but he is thankfull for our home cooked meals. As time has passed, though his break up wasnt his choice, food aside he is glad it happened as looking back he can now clearly see that he wasnt happy in his relationship any more than she was. I cant say for sure the way to a mans heart is through his stomach but in his case it sure helped.

one of the first things my wife ever made me when we first started dating was mussels in a white wine sauce with garlic crostini, and it sealed the deal. she knew it was one of my favorites and it knocked my socks off!

When I was first dating my (now husband) I knew fairly early on he was "the one". I paid attention to the kinds of meals he ordered when we went out to dinner. Since he always took me to nice places for dates, I decided to make dinner for him at my house for a date. He does not cook AT ALL, so honestly, had I made anything he would have been impressed. Even knowing this, I still wanted to make a dinner to really impress him! I made bowtie pasta tossed with grilled chicken, sun dried tomatoes, spinach and topped it with a pesto (homemade!). His absolute favorite it pesto (he ordered a pesto dish on our second date). The dinner was at hit and he was amazed that I had remembered how much he liked pesto. From time to time he will still request "dinner date" pasta!

Due to the fact that my boyfriend is in the Air Force, initially, the majority of our relationship was long distance. Every few weeks I baked him cookies, brownies, and treats and would send it out to him in a package containing all his favorite things according to whatever holiday was coming up. He said he looked forward to receiving these packages and knew I was a keeper!!

The dish that did it for me...(drumroll) Gumbo...and still to this day is working it's magic. When I make Gumbo people just 'somehow' make it over to our house. Which kind of explains the big pot I use when I cook it. :) It's always a big hit on the holidays also.

Cooking is a shared love in my house. I love to cook for my husband and we love to cook together. Now my 3 year old is in on the cooking game, we put on our aprons and laugh and create. We made ricotta gnocchi together, and although the kitchen was a mess, the memory was worth it. And it was delicious!

I made my then girlfriend a fine Beef Wellington for dinner one night... It came out fantastic! Don't know the influence it had but she and I are celebrating our 23rd anniversary in about 3 months.

My girlfriend (now of almost 4 years) was a vegetarian when we first started dating, and I DEFINITELY was not. Aiming to please, I strived to make her a vegetarian dinner. I found a recipe for baked eggplant parm, added my own twist and extra love to the recipe and go to work...The result was fantastic--satisfied even a meat lover like myself. She is no longer a vegetarian, but we still often enjoy my baked eggplant parm.

I cook for love every night! Last night I cook my lovely girlfriend Carmelized corn and black beans over rice with BBQ tilapia. It's was delicious, and she loved it. She really loves it when I sing "come on baby light fire" when I start the grill.

My sweetie is definitely a foodie! I wouldn't have it any other way. I once prepared for him, meat & potatoes, a light salad and a fruit based dessert and I had a happy, foodie, sweetheart. I started the meal with light, mixed greens with dijon vinaigrette salad. The beef bourguignon is the star of the show....(I'd also like to state that I believe I've finally mastered this dish) and he couldn't be more in love with me or his dish! Several hours later, caramelized pears, served with ice cream! Totally in love!

My love was away last year in her country. She had a family emergency and couldn't return in time. I put on some romantic music at home and cooked a lovely flank steak dinner with her favorite rice and black beans. I made a wonderful salad with cucumber and cilantro with bib lettuce and even made a homemade dressing. I served two plates and even had a bottle of Shiraz. I placed a picture of the two of us on a chair across from me and we had a candle lit dinner on Skype. It was a sweet Valentine dinner. I will never forget.

My husband once said that he knew that he wanted to marry me when I made him my special seafood soup. And yes, it is delicious. :)

I was Introduced to whole foods by my husband, although I yet myself have not been to your stores. i am extremely looking forward to it . Even though my husband went to your store in pennsylvania while he was working there, and all he did was talk about how wonderful your store was, little did we know that we had one right here in union NJ. How wonderful for us can,t wait to shop there. My husband bought me a beautiful butter cream valentines day cake, absolutely unreal. The best thing overall to my husband was the customer service that he recieves eveerytime he walks in. Congratulations my husband is not easy to please, and now I can,t shut him up.
