Menus for Love

I've been cooking a lot since moving into the new house (partly because I LOVE to cook and partly because we spent three weeks going back and forth between houses, which meant a lot of drive-thru and takeout food. Ugh).

DH has been in heaven. He loves it when I cook, and this last couple weeks has been a regular restaurant around here -- cherry glazed chicken, wild rice and mushroom soup, baked fettuccini, homemade maple bacon baked beans, beef chili, individual chicken pot pies...and even dessert. I had apricot-glazed apple crisp one night, peanut butter and jelly bars another.

That got me thinking about what kind of menus others prepare for those they love. I started at Rachael Ray, who posted the menu from her wedding day, along with the recipes.
There's even advice on cooking together from one website. Speaking from personal experience, none of those tips work if you have a kitchen the size of a postage stamp, which my last one was. In that case, all I wanted was for other people to GET OUT of the kitchen while I did my thing.
Another woman has started a thing called The Husband Project, which is all about learning to cook meals for your husband (me, I love to eat, so these are as much for me as anyone else in this house).

Do you do the cooking in your house? Do you enjoy it? Or is it a chore? What's your specialty meal?

I like to cook but am very lucky that my Hubs does as well. *g* My favorite dish of his is Teriyaki Cornish Hens. And his of mine? Chicken paprika with egg noodles. *g*
