You could try making really simple things. Like sometimes we’ll just marinate chicken in italian dressing for a little while and throw it on the george foreman. then if it’s summer we put it over salad (the bagged kind so its pre-done) or now when i want warmer things i’ll boil some rice and steam a veggie like broccoli. doesn’t take very long at all.

Simple, you make cooking fun rather than a chore. Like, when you are making dessert together, share an ice cream kiss. When baking a quiche, give it an interesting shape. Learn new, easy recipes (like making pasta in red sauce from the scratch). Have food fights. You can actually use this time to enhance your relationship.

Join a recipe-saver site like allrecipes.com or keyingredient.com and start building lists of things you want to try. Most recipes are just following directions, so just pick things with few ingredients and short lists.

Even if you can’t get your SO to want to cook at home, perhaps you can make the meals until he feels the desire to. If you have a grill, maybe you can suggest trying a new steak, or trying to smoke a turkey, or make beer-can chicken, and ask him if he could help.

If a meal is provided, or even if dinner is planned and in the works, your SO might feel less inclined to go out to eat.I would plan a menu, say “this is what we are having,” and I guarantee that he will eat it.
