Do you ever cook with your husband/significant other? If so, what kind of food do you cook?
You probably know from some of my previous blog posts that I’m a foodaholic. I love talking about food and recipes. About two weeks ago, I was so excited about the Royal Wedding. Well, since I’m a romance writer, it was just natural that I’d be interested in the nuptials. It was like a fairy tale. I sighed and swooned as I watched the footage live – I got up at four AM. Then I watched it again later that day.
I’d read that the couple was serving a Lemon Elderflower Cake for their reception. I’d never heard of elderflower and since both my husband and I love lemon, I thought it’d be fun to make the same cake here at home. I figured if my husband knew I was making this nice cake to enjoy after the wedding, then, he just might get excited about the Royal Wedding, too.
So, the night before the wedding, I found the Lemon Elderflower Cake recipe online and I bought the ingredients. I urged my husband to come into the kitchen with me as I made the cake. He tasted the batter before I poured it into the pans. He loves to taste uncooked cake batter.
Once the cake was finished and cooled, I opened the jar of lemon curd that I’d bought from the store. The lemon curd was used as a filling for the cake. I tasted it. It was delicious! He tasted it as well and he loved it!
He told me that he was having a great time tasting the Royal Wedding cake. The icing took a long time to make. I let my husband taste the syrup that I made over the stove. After I’d whipped the syrup into the butter he tasted it again.
He loved tasting the batter, filling and icing so much that he was anxious for me to cut the cake. However, I told him that we couldn’t cut the cake until after Harry and Meghan were married. So, guess what? He was now anxious for the Royal Wedding! We sampled the delicious cake while Harry and Meghan had their reception.
My husband told me he enjoys it when we’re in the kitchen together. We don’t often cook together, but when we do, it’s a fun experience. If you’re looking for something different to do with your hubby or boyfriend, then choose a tasty dessert (or main course) and cook it together. Try something new by using a recipe that you’ve never used before. It’s a great way to open the door to a new food experience.
So, do you often cook with your husband/boyfriend? If so, what do you usually cook?
