Cooking Up Some Romance in the Kitchen – Engaged Marriage

Cooking Up Some Romance in the Kitchen

By Dustin | Romance

I don’t know any guys who don’t love a great home-cooked meal. After all, we’ve all heard the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

But what about the ladies?

According to my wife at least, there are few things sexier than sitting back and enjoying a glass of wine while I cook her a great dinner.

This is an awesome way to spend an at-home date night, but it’s also appreciated when the whole family is involved.

Sounds good, but I can’t cook!

Even the best intentions aren’t really romantic when they end in a burnt entree and a dessert that gets passed to the dog.

While I’m blessed to be married to a great cook, I personally have no culinary skills.  That’s a convenient excuse for not cooking, but it’s a totally fixable problem.

I know a lot of guys struggle with the same issue – they don’t know how to cook or they just don’t have any good ideas about what to prepare.  And of course many wives could use some help coming up with some new, easy ideas that will impress their husband.

Divas to the Rescue!

Personally, I’m not a big fan of most cookbooks – they either feature food I’d never eat or the recipes are too complicated for me to pull off without a trip to a gourmet market.

Well, I was excited to see that my friends at The Dating Divas recently released their own e-cookbook.  It’s got 29 different recipes that span from appetizers to entrees and desserts.

And the best part is that these recipes are actually food that we love!  Plus, they’re all pretty easy to prepare, even for a kitchen novice like me.

Some personal favorites of mine are:

  • Appetizer- Smokin’ Stuffed Peppers
  • Entree – Easy, Healthier Lasagna
  • Dessert – Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies (woot!)

And the attractiveness of this cookbook goes beyond the food.  Each recipe is accompanied by a story from the Diva who prepared it  – sharing how the food impacted their date or impressed their spouse makes it all the more special.

Divas’ Recipes Revealed

I’d encourage you to go check out the new Divas’ Recipes Revealed cookbook for yourself.  Click here to get all the details.

It’s only $5.97 – so for the price of a fast food meal, you can be ready to go with lots of delicious, romantic meals to cook for your spouse!

By the way, the Divas also have two other great e-books that I highly recommend.  You should check out The ULTIMATE Date Night Book and The A to Z Guide: 26 Ways in 26 Days to a Happier, Healthier Marriage.

Once my wife and I decided to bake cookies on our date night – at first it seemed like work, but it turned out to be pretty romantic!


    Thanks, Tim. We love cooking, but baking is even better!
