I made my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe the other day. Darling Husband gobbled them up and was asking for more yesterday and today. When I said ‘they’re all gone’ he looked so, so, so sad. I think I’m going to cave and have some ready for him in the morning.

BBQ pulled pork. I knew he’d love it, but goodness, does he go crazy. And that’s a big deal for him because he is the pickiest eater ever. 

He also LOVES these chicken and spinach taquitos I make. I was surprised by that one! For one, he had never really had Mexican before. And second, I did not think he’d like spinach. He goes crazy for these babies though! He always requests it. Even though he’s never tried to make the taquitos, he will throw in spinach to random dishes he makes now. I’m like a proud momma.

I have a chicken cutlet recipe that I’ve only made once a few weeks ago, but ever since I’ve made it SO has tried to get it onto the menu for the week. It’s so easy that I thought it would be kind of meh!

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. He loves GCS, he knows how to make GCS, but something about how I make them…might be a trick to get me to cook them (he always give me puppy dog eyes PUEEEZZ), might be the 2 Tablespoons of butter and extra cheese that I use…LOL

Mr TTR does the majority of the day to day cooking (he loves it).  I cook spontaneously more than anything else… get the urge, go out and get the stuff… and voila make something unexpected and great.

And although I have a good list of standards (Spagetti Sauce, Chili, etc) that he loves, I also have no issue with experimenting / trying something new.

Recipes don’t scare me… I read something that wets my appetite and I’m up to the challenge.

Be it a main course, a fancy dessert… or something more fluid / labour intensive like a batch of jam, pickles, infused alcohol or handmade candies / chocolates.

Thing is though, I don’t always do repeats (always looking for new inspiration).  So sometimes it is difficult to go back and “recapture” the last great thing.

Mr TTR tends to wax poetically about the dishes I’ve made him… often wanting repeat performances, but sadly they are few and far apart

(He still talks about the Osso Bucco Recipe that I made for him that took a full day of simmering when we first met… if there is such a thing as Engagement Chicken then this dish should have been nicknamed “Veal from the God of Venus”… lol)

I make foods all the time that SO just can’t get enough of. He’s always telling me I should be a chef because I could make us some serious money with my gift in the kitchen!

Here are a few photos of things I’ve made:

Home made apple pie, completely from scratch. Had a few people tell me it was the best apple pie they’d ever had.

 

Home made lemon cake with lemon frosting and a lemon curd in the middle. Doesn’t look as beautiful as I’d hoped but it was to die for!

My christmas turkey, which turned my anti turkey mother into a believer, who ate TWO servings!

I seriously love cooking, I cook for SO basically every night, maybe taking a break a couple nights a month for fun. It’s a passion of mine 🙂 I’d love to see more ladies cooking successes!!! By the way, those tarts look DIVINE!

@Eckle:  We both love curry, but I was really surprised by how much my fiance loves this green chicken curry I make.  It’s actually one of the easier recipes I make (perfect for a weeknight).  It’s not “authentic” by any means, but it’s really good.

He’ll mention the green chicken curry if I haven’t made it in a while.  I try to make it pretty often, but sometimes I just want to try new things.  I usually make out a grocery list for him and he’ll pick everything up … And sometimes “randomly” all of the ingredients for this meal appear in our kitchen!  I can take a hint.  Smile

A huge surprise from my Fiance, he’s begging me to make steamed broccoli, lol!!  He finally found a way he likes to eat it and now can’t get enough.

I love cooking threads!!!

Fiance and I are both obsessed with a whole wheat pizza recipe I found. We thirst for it like water.

I really broke mine…

When we were first dating I used to make him pineapple stuffed pork chops and he LOVED them. But somewhere along the line i stopped making them (mostly cos i couldnt stand them). He asked me recently to make them again and keeps talking about them but now I can’t find the recipe anywhere and no attempts to reacreate them have been successful

@Eckle:  That was a bit impossible to read because the fractions came out funny.. hmm. I’d love to try it out though!!!
