Romancing the Stove

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and I couldn’t agree more. What is the way to a woman’s heart? Is it chocolate, shoes or purses? I'd take all three for sure! Of course there is much more to a relationship than food and gifts, but there is something that you do most everyday that could be a way to heat things up for both of you. What might make its way to both of your hearts is cooking together. Yes, that’s right, you and your better half in the kitchen cooking. Not only is it something to do together, it can be really romantic. Yes, romantic.
Couples in the kitchen together are a little like two dancers. Someone takes the lead, and another follows. It can be a graceful waltz or a comical series of errors. It all depends on your experience, or lack of, in the kitchen and how comfortable you are being in the kitchen together. Cooking together offers a way to learn to do something together. If you are experienced cook, preparing a meal together can be a way to show off a little, and showing your skill and knowledge in a confident way is sexy. One of the romantic things about cooking together is that you really can learn something about the other person and it is a wonderful way to bond with the one you love. Do they follow directions, or do they give them? Are they patient or anxious? Maybe they are bossy or controlling? It is important to remember that communication is a key element to any relationship. When you are in the kitchen cooking together you have to communicate, otherwise a step could be missed, a pot may boil over, or the food may burn. A relationship, and dinner, could go up in flames if there is poor communication.
