Since we first started dating one thing that Andrew and I have loved doing together is cooking. Whether is be a simple, classic dish or an elaborate and formal meal we truly enjoy our time together in the kitchen trying new things.
I think our love of food and cooking really took off after our trip to Napa where we tried 2 of the world’s Top 100 restaurants. After returning from our trip our cookbook collection started to grow as we acquired several more cook books.
With Andrew’s busy schedule our time together is limited so cooking a special meal together is always something that we look forward to. Regardless of how much time you are able to spend with your partner (or friend, family member, roommate) cooking together can be a great way to work together and try new things.
We try really hard to cook every night rather than going our or ordering in. It can get a little boring if we have the same meals over and over so we try to mix it up. We decided to make it a goal to try a few new dishes each week and we have definitely developed a few favorites along the way.
A few of our favorites:
- Pesto Gnocchi 2. Panzanella 3. Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Roasted Cauliflower 4. Lasagna Rolls (personal recipe) 5. Tarragon Chicken
