@stardustintheeyes:  my Fiance is also good at this.  It works out because I have a weird aversion to leftovers, but Fiance is a leftovers artist of sorts.  We call it “scrounging” and he’ll rummage through leftovers and whatever we have on hand to create something to feed himself.  I am so weirdly picky I ususally won’t eat leftovers that have meat in them (I really dont’ like reheated chicken or beef or pork) so he gets free reign on those “pull something together fast” nights.  He wishes I’d eat what he’s created, but I usually just stick to popcorn or cereal!

SO is an AMAZING cook, and he loves it! Everything he makes is amazing, but I especially love anything he makes on the grill, his tilapia and anything Italian he makes! I on the other hand, can barely poor a jar of Prego on some pasta. Poor SO! haha

@stardustintheeyes:  my Mother-In-Law makes a “poor meal” but we call them hobo dinners. basically you get a BIG piece of foil, and put however much ground beef you want (like 1/4th-1/3rd lb of raw beef). Then you just grab whatever you’ve got! Seasonings, cheese, veggies (we use corn, potatoes, green onions), and maybe some bbq sauce or ketchup. Then you mix it all together and form it into a big patty. You wrap the whole thing in foil and put it on the grill til it’s done. It comes out moist and juicy and its all from using whatever is in your fridge/freezer!

He is a wonderful cook, his parents even tried to persuade him to go to cooking school at one point.  He’s from a family of self proclaimed foodies, so he was raised to cook good food.  His specialty is pasta, with homemade sauces.  His best is a spicy sausage pasta with a tomato basil sauce.  Mmmm, now I’m hungry.

@MrsDrRose612:  i dont mind leftovers. there are certain things that dont reheat that well if you pop them in the microwave but do well if you heat them in the oven instead. im somewhat picky but not too bad. SO is not picky at all. he is a hoover for sure.

 

@vintagemodernbride:  never tried that before. ill have to do that lol. it sounds really yummy actually

Darling Husband and I are usually collaborative in the kitchen, but he’s pretty much the meat guy.

He loves trying out new recipes. A couple of months back he felt like taking a break from the expected and he made us bacon-wrapped pork medallions, and despite the fact that I have never been the biggest fan of pork, I was FLOORED by how delicious they were. He also makes the world’s most succulent roast chicken, and he is the only person I have ever met who can make gravy I actually enjoy.

He also makes the flakiest, most perfect pie crusts known to man. I love a man who loves to bake!

Fiance is an amazing cook. I got him an immersion circulator for his birthday and he’s been cooking lots of meat sous vide. 🙂

MUSHROOMS!!! He made it for me on our third date and won my heart…Background: I HATE mushrooms!!! Despise…loathe….yuck!!! Never ever EVER eat them!!! He made them for me, I just met this guy, he spent prolly an hour or two cooking them and I just couldn’t be a brat about it…so I tried it and I loved the dish!!! To this day its the only way I will eat mushrooms!

Recipe:

You need: whole Mushrooms, onions, a little butter, heavy whipping cream, & red wine. 

Throw in a tab of butter, and a bunch of onions….cook them til they’re like wet looking, and then the mushrooms, (peeled, like just the head part)…let it cook in the red wine, (enough to almost cover everything in the pan, and let it cook down forever, but prolly like 20-30 minutes simmering…then add heavy whipping cream, like maybe a 1/2 cup and let it simmer for another 10-15 min, and enjoy!!! it should be pretty much the color of the red wine…and its sooooooooo good…
