One of my boyfriend's favorite desserts is a good old fashion American apple crisp, even being a native Canadian. That said, he LOVES bananas and anything with banana in it. So, I decided to put a slight twist on the classic apple crisp and make him a caramelized banana crisp with fresh organic whipped cream. Not only that but I decided to make it gluten free. Equipment: Mini spring-form pan or ceramic dish for baking Vanilla Whipped Cream: 1 large vanilla bean soaked, split and gutted 1 pint organic heavy whipping cream 2 TB powdered maple crystals Crisp Topping: Gluten free flour 1/2 egg, beaten Filling: 3-4 ripe, organic bananas 2 TB organic honey 1 tsp vanilla bean 1 pinch seal salt

I cooked for my boyfriend for the first time four years ago. Fried pork chops, fresh string beans and my famous Mac and cheese. Four years later he is still eating at my table. Can you say love at first bite!

My husband and I met while serving in the US Navy in Spain. His pick up line was asking me to help him make some lasagna. So, one evening we did! It tasted delish! After a few years of dating, we got married on Valentine's Day. This year will be our 9th wedding anniversary. So, each V-day, we make lasagna. It's awesome b/c each year we make it different....vegitarian, ground beef, turkey, change up the sauces, cheeses. Each year our marriage is different, just like our lasagna. Oh la la :)

My husband knows the way to my heart is with his califlower mash. It's too labor-intensive for me to want to make for myself but he does it from prep to clean up. What a sweetheart!

I used to make a decadent recipe from an old Metropolitan Museum of Art employee cookbook for my husband, for special occasions, because he really loved it. It had sliced potatoes, butter, Italian sausage, and sour cream in it, and was baked in the oven. He loved it, and I felt bad when I had to stop making it for Valentines Day and his birthday. Too much cholesterol! But thinking of that dish brings back fond memories of the early years of our marriage. :-)

My husband has a sweet tooth. I cook for him almost every night, but the way to his heart is through sweets. His favorite is a coffee cake recipe I make from the Flour Bakery in Boston.

A weird combination, but tuna noodle casserole and chocolate chip cookies made the day!

35 years ago I fell in love with the man who opened a bottle of Rose d'Anjou and proceeded to grill some perfectly seasoned lamb chops...

There is nothing more romantic than to sit down together after a long day at work with a glass of lovely (preferably Virginia) wine and some cheese, crackers, olives and other appetizer type delights. I love going to Whole Foods on the way home, picking up cheese, salami, some dips and even some prepared foods, and greeting my husband of 38 year when he gets home, knowing that we will have wonderful food and the leisure to catch up with each other.

Rosemary and garlic crusted racks of lamb with herb-roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus, with a favorite vintage cab or pinot noir, and ending with cheesecake with raspberry coulis.

As two vegetarians and local-vores, in February, a great disk is sweet potato, kale and feta cheese patties held together with seasoned bread crumbs and some eggs. So delicious, healthy, and simple!

I have only learned to cook in the last four years. My husband cooked for the first 10 years we were together. He even made birthday cakes from scratch for the kids and for me. We love to cook together now and last year for his birthday I made a four layer German chocolate cake from scratch for him. I have a scar from where I burned myself taking it out of the oven. It was worth the look on his face when I surprised him with it and he still talks about how much he loved it.

For my birthday last year my husband (then fiancé) made a vegan triple chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache frosting--three layers all from scratch! He isn't a baker, generally doesn't cook, and is definitely not vegan! It was the most delicious cake I've ever eaten and among some of the most romantic gestures he's ever made. I'm smiling as I type this remembering how absolutely romantic that was.

I once made a pot roast with potatoes, carrots, and onions for a girl I really wanted to impress. Then I made us strawberry shortcake for dessert. She dated me for quite a while after that but she always wanted me to cook.

I made my new boyfriend a homemade Valentine's Day dinner last year. It was tilapia filets marinated in a butternut squash oil and balsamic vinegar, with quinoa and roasted veggies. It wasn't the greatest, but he appreciated the thought. Since then, I've won him over with my healthy fudge. Can't go wrong with that!
