When my husband and I were newly married, he wanted me to bake him something special. I had no idea how to bake (at the time) but I was very creative in my ambitions. I thought up a Red Velvet Volcano Cake, with cream cheese frosting as the lava. It was huge, messy and full of love!

The first time that partner at the time was going to cook for me, he told me he was going to make me an onion and cheese sandwich. I couldn't hide the face that I made, but it turned out to be delicious!

I made oatmeal softies and shaped my dough into hearts then drizzled some melted chocolate on top. Healthy and I love to bake healthy for my husband!

I made cookies for my then boyfriendand (now husband) on deployment and everyone told him to come home and marry me! Which he did, hopefully for more than the cookies!

Together, we made smoked salmon with scallops and mussels on the side. It was heavenly.

I won my husband through a meal. After eating sea salt & peppered salmon, brown rice & steamed green beans, my boyfriend at the time told me he loved me for the first time. Four months later we were married & I totally attribute that meal to our falling in love. Years later, he still requests that meal & every time tells me, that's the night I knew I wanted to make you my wife.

My now husband won my heart when every couple of days he would bring over some delicious seafood meal for me to take to work the next day. After a month of deliciousness, my coworkers said "You've got to marry this guy! He loves you so much that he cooks his heart out for you!" Twenty-three years later, he is still cooking for me, though he cooks more than seafood, and in gratitude for his delish food, I bake him wonderful gf desserts. We both are thrilled!

The guy I was dating, who is now my husband, knew I was working a long shift and probably wouldn't have anything to eat. He surprised me with a plate covered in foil that had a flank steak, ranch beans, garlic bread, and a candy bar for dessert. Needless to say, he completely won my heart and we've been together ever since!

My sweet husband is the cook at most meals since he is truly the better cook between us, enjoys cooking and is home earlier most evenings. However, it was early on that I learned that he was creative as well. He has presented me with many birds made from apples and pears in our 18 + years together. Beautifully staged salads and many picture worthy and flavorful meals. I have taken pictures to prove it.

I made a birthday cake for my husband for the first time last year, and he raved about how good it was for a week! I can't wait to outdo myself this year!

My husband is a simple man, whereas I like my food complicated. To see him eat with joy, I have made him his favorite-which is Hawaiian sweet bread with melted fresh mozzarella! I know, sounds not very good, but he loves it.

There is NO BETTER WAY to impress the love of your life than Fettucine Alfredo and Chocolate Pots de Creme! Add smooth jazz, a red dress, a great champagne and he's yours for life .... it worked for me ~ and I've been married to the greatest man in the world for 21 years!

After 54 years of marriage, I still love to cook for my sweetie. For the 54th Valentine's dinner, I will prepare his favorite; rib-eye steak, EVOO roasted red potatoes , and a chef's salad. The table centerpiece will be the dozen yellow roses that he brings me. (this will make 648 roses that he has given me) He surprises me with dessert. He shops for something with chocolate, knowing that anything that he chooses will be fine. We are both chocoholics.

I made grilled chicken with broccoli, sweet potatoes, and green beans and made a double layer red velvet cake for dessert. It was wonderful and my wife loved it.

All things RED (wine, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, filet mignon, strawberries, raspberries) + DARK CHOCOLATE (mousse, molten lava cake, NY Super Fudge Chunk ice cream, candy) = SO MUCH ROMANCE!

I made my boyfriend a rack of lamb seasoned with rosemary, lemon, garlic, pepper & salt in olive oil. I cooked a side of roasted asparagus with a hollandaise sauce and thickly sliced garlic bread. He had never had a rack of lamb before and was OOZING romantically while he devoured it! His other favorite is my tilapia fish tacos with broccoli slaw (made with mayo, sour cream, chili powder & apple cider vinegar) accompanied with a southwest style salad topped with my homemade cilantro-lime vinaigrette! He's also a big fan of my Vitamix made smoothies, I might add! All of the afore-mentioned are a guarantee for a night and morning of heavy petting and are a cure-all for any relationship problems or arguments. I'm pretty sure my Valentine's Day will be amazing this year!

Yes, I have definitely cooked for my love. I do it everyday! I love to see him enjoy the healthy meals I make for him. I love it when he tries things that he never had tried before and ends up loving it! I'm from Japan so I try to cook him traditional Japanese dishes here in Boston. I've even started a blog logging that journey (it's www.jpinsider.com in case you are curious!). The most romantic meal which I will ever cook for him is actually coming up on Valentines day! I'm planning to cook up healthy but delicious desserts for him to taste, accompanied with some delicious wine. Can't wait, I'm so excited :) I'm trying to be creative too.
