    Re: with your cooking knowledge

    Probably grill out. I usually do some hash browns with cheese in foil and onions, with some top sirloins, ribeyes, some thing like that.

    Re: with your cooking knowledge

    I can do spaghetti and meatballs pretty easily

    throw a salad in there and some bread and you got a decent meal.

    Bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin
    Roasted Potatoes with Bell Peppers
    Garlic Green Beans

    This is what I made for my wife on our first anniversary while still dating.

    Re: with your cooking knowledge

    Just off the top of my head?

    Baked Ziti w/ Italian Sausage.

    1 box of ziti
    1 small canister of ricotta cheese
    1 jar of pasta sauce
    1 package of shredded mozzarella cheese
    2 lbs of ground sweet Italian sausage

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Boil the ziti according to box directions and cook Italian sausage . Drain both. Add oil to the ziti prevent sticking. Spray the bottom of a casserole dish with pan, then layer the bottom of the dish with ziti. On top of that layer spread the ricotta cheese. On top of that put another layer of ziti. On top of that layer put the Italian sausage and pasta sauce. On top of that layer with the shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover, bake for 45-60 minutes. Serve with a Caesar salad and garlic bread.

    Re: with your cooking knowledge

    - spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette tossed with feta, dried cranberries and walnuts
    - Broiled or grilled steak or pork chops
    - garlic skin-on mashed potatoes
    - steamed asparagus
    - warm crusty bread and butter
    - easy apple dessert with ice cream
    - bottle of pinot noir

    I'm a chick and I like to cook. I think that's a large part of the reason my husband married me.

    I personally love every type of food-seafood, mexican, chinese, everything.
    Seafood can be a tough call if you don't know if the other person likes it or not.

    I really like grilling with the woman because it gives us time to sit around and have a drink and talk while grilling. My lady likes to help me cook too and not just have me do all the work so that's a bonus too.
