Jacque Pepin has a great fast roasted chicken recipe that is gourmet but easy. It's fast because you use poultry shears or sharp kitchen scissors to remove the backbone, flatten everything, baste front and back with an easy honey mustard garlicky sauce, and start off searing in a pan on the stove for a few minutes that then goes into the oven for 30 minutes. It comes out browned and perfect. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans and bon apetit! My husband loves it.

My husband, Melvin, is a FANTASTIC baker!!! Last year, he made three different flavored bread puddings and invited his favorite friends and family over to sample his home-made delights. He even purchased "to go" containers. Just being on the list makes guests feel loved and I feel loved just knowing that he chose ME!!!

Every day. I love to cook and I love to have someone to cook for. My fiance loves good food, but cooking isn't one of his gifts. We take care of each other, in food and otherwise.

I had someone make me homemade lavender ice cream after I mentioned that I tried it once and loved it. He ordered the lavender buds online and borrowed a friend's ice cream maker!

He's a much better cook than I am, but he always loves to eat the Mexican chocolate cake I make on his birthday.

Once when I was dating my now husband, my pro chef bro in law made some spaghetti sauce for me which I said was my own, and won my husbands love. Only afterwewere seriously dating did I confess!!!! Sneaky!!!

The last time I cooked for a boyfriend, I was 18 years old and thought I would marry the guy. I spent four hours preparing, chopping, and baking away. I don't even remember everything I cooked except the dessert, which I was most proud of. I made a homemade Oreo Ice Cream cake. He went on and on about how good it was and then left me two months later. Needless to say, I haven't done that since!!! However, I have been told I'm a good cook, so I won't give up looking for Mr. Right. I'm perfecting my roasted chicken for when I finally do find him: )

When I first started dating my now fiance, I made pear ginger baked duck. with whipped carrots, sweet potatoes, and ginger. and a mixed greens salad. it is still our favorite meal! When I surprised him after his work day, with candles lit, I think it sealed the deal.

Beef bourguignon which is described by Julia Child in Mastering the Art of French Cooking as the dish, sauté de boeuf à la Bourguignonne, which is "certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted by man." For dessert, Ihis grandmother's delicious rum cake recipe that I make from scratch for his birthday every year!

I love to try new recipes that I have never made before. This summer I made Paella on the grill. It was a hit! Valentine's day is always dinner by candle light: salad, steak, potato, veggie & chocolate covered strawberries :)

My teen daughters are both watching their diets but love desserts like everyone else, so I must be creative with a good balance between taste and health. I make them raw strawberry "cheesecake" with blended soaked cashews, strawberries, coconut paste, lemon, vanilla, and soaked golden Hunza raisins for the sweetener. They are satisfied with just a small piece served with raw strawberry sauce on top.

The love of my life is my husband of three months, we met last February on a blind date. On our third date he made Lasagna, but it had a twist to it. It had pieces of grilled chicken for the meat and was covered in enchilada sauce on every layer. I like to call it Enchilada Lasagna.

Mexican food is always the way to my husband's heart. I have made vegetarian tortilla soup, enchiladas with homemade tomatillo sauce, and our newest "invention:" homemade corn tortillas on my husband's Christmas tortilla press. We make tacos for dinner, breakfast, lunch, snacks... and we've even started baking the tortillas to make homemade tostadas. Delicious topped with refried black beans, diced tomatoes, jalapenos, crumbled feta cheese, chopped cilantro and salsa! Then every Valentine's day I make Warm Chocolate Souffle Cakes with fresh whipped cream. Both swooning and spooning inducing!

Chicken stew w/homemade biscuits. The first time I made this & he told me it was better than his mom's, I knew I had a keeper (thanks Ina Garten). I like to use organic chicken & veg from WF's + King Arthur flour for the biscuits. For dessert I think his fav is fresh berries layered with sweetened creme fraiche & crumbled graham crackers. I add a dash of vanilla extract & grated lemon zest to the creme fraiche to make it extra yummy!!

My Love tells me that she's romantically touched by many of my dishes. But the first was poached eggs w/alaskan salmon and a homemade mush n spinach n shallot cream sauce, poured over a scallion pancake. Note: she HATED eggs b4 this day. I was blessed to cook for her the "next morning", but didn't know I was expanding her pallete as well! Happy coming V Day!
