I am vegan, but my husbands favorite meal is a NY strip with corn on the cob, spinach salad and spiced basmati rice. It is important to me that I am able to purchase humanely treated meats, even though I don't eat it myself. When we started shopping at Whole Foods, my husband could not believe the difference in the taste as compared to conventional grocery stores. This has been his absolute favorite meal ever since!

I kind of suck at cooking, so I've never really done anything spectacular in the food department for a man. However, if any man cooks for me, that will pretty much make me love them. I have a plagued digestive system and a million food restrictions, so cooking for myself is a really big chore...someone willing to help me with that deserves my love.

my husband and i are both chefs so it was a mutual wooing with food. i won him over with pistachio creme brulee. to this day creme brulee is still one of his very favorites. he won me over with linguine with fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese. last week i made him homemade lasagne that made him swoon.

My recipe involves champagne and hot fudge but that's as much as I can say in a family format. ;)

On our first Valentine's Day, my now-husband made a casserole of Garlic-sauteed Chicken and saffron rice. Delish!

I Bring home pre-cooked dinner and dessert for two from Whole Foods, set the table so we can gaze into each other eyes, have the candles ready to be lit, champagne chilled Turn off the cell phones, dim the lights and talk, no music no interruptions just the two of us.

When I was 16 I made a heart shaped lasagna based on my mom's recipe. He really loves it! Plus, his mother invited me to come over and we make the lasagna together!

My hubby cooks for me every night...and no ladies, you can't have him..he's taken! He made the most amazing apple pie the other day. He gets his ideas for meals watching food channels. He loves to cook and I clean up after his "creative efforts."

My husband and I have come a LONG way both in our taste (literally) and cooking ability and the things I use to cook for him... well, I wouldn't make them today. I baited the hook with a chicken dish that was marinated in soy sauce and sautéed with zucchini and canned tomatoes served over boil in the bag white rice. As my recipe repertoire improved, this one got shelved. My husband is not a very romantic person, but I can read between the lines when we sit down to dinner and he takes that first bite and says "you can stay".

When I met my current boyfriend, I told him how great my peanut butter pancakes were--and normally they are. When he came over for breakfast, I burned the first batch and the second half came out raw! I guess I was nervous, but we ended up together anyway.

Yes I have cooked for love. When you love and cherish the person you are with, you are willing to do anything for him or her. The last time the love of my life and I cooked it was shanghai asian beef with vegetables that was steamed and wonderful with every bite. We are dessert fanatics so we afterwards we enjoyed birthday cake pieces that was around the house inside vanilla ice cream with whipped cream on top. It was heaven on earth! Special moments like those are what Cupid's arrow could never miss!

I love cooking and my husband certainly loved that aspect when we were dating and to this day. His favorite is a dish I first made for him in the dating days which is ground beef or sirloin with grilled & peeled poblano peppers and onions served with all homemade: rice, beans, salsa, tortillas. It's how my Grandma makes it. It's soo good and even writing about it makes me want a taco of it now! As for tonight, I am making for us stuffed shells w/ italian sausage and garlic bread... it's going to be a great night!

I made a dinner to win the heart of a man who turned out to be My Prince. I made Porterhouse Steak with Mushroom and Onions, Baked Potato with Sour Cream, Butter, Bacon Bits and Chives, Salad of Romaine Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cheese, Bacon Bits, Red Onions, Cucumbers, Mandrin Orange Slices topped with Italian Dressing, Dinner Rolls with Olive Oil, Butter with Minced Garlic melted and poured over rolls, Cherry Cheesecake and Chilled Sparkling Cherry. He loved the dinner and ask me to marry him so we were married Christmas Eve 19 years ago.
