The way to a womans heart is through a tenderly communication, then what is the way to man’s heart? Yes through his stomach. Meaning: Many women have won a man’s love by cooking delicious meals for him. They fed his stomach and found love in his heart. For me that doesn’t mean woman in the kitchen, and the man watching TV while waiting for the food to be served.
How often do we forget to have a good time without scheduling it in? Why don’t you take the time to cook together. Whether you’re dating, newlyweds, or are in the full swing of marriage, cooking together is time to interactively engage. It is amazing how spending some quality time with the people that you love will not only improve your relationships but will also improve your health. The hour and a half that would usually be spent ordering food, taking in the environment and talking to your waiter, can be spent enjoying your own home, your own food and your own company. The main benefit that comes with cooking together is strengthening your bond. Experiment with different ingredients and recipe methods. If you find that there just aren’t enough hours in the day to spend together then cooking dinner for your family, or making a romantic meal together could be a great idea. You know what, don’t hesitate to start a food-fight, hahahaha….
The first thing that you need to remember is to relax, especially if you’re prone to becoming stressed in the kitchen. Before you start cooking, take a few deep breaths. Remember that this is a fun activity. Here are five good reasons to make the time to get cooking with your other half:
Share your memories => Learning things about each other you didn’t know can be a benefit of cooking together. Almost everyone has a favourite childhood recipe, and it is sure to make great conversation. This is a great way to share it with your spouse. Make your own memories together.
Spend quality time together => After working all day, it is often difficult to mustard the energy for another activity. Sitting in front of the television together really isn’t good bonding time. You eat dinner every night so make it a date. You can cook dinner and spend quality time together at the same time.
Build teamwork => Cooking together can teach you how to delegate tasks and work toward a common goal, important aspects of any relationship. Teamwork in the kitchen can help you define your strengths and weaknesses while having fun and being creative together.
Learn new skill together => Nothing brings people closer together than a shared learning experience. Choosing a different cuisine that neither of you have tried can be a great experience to share together. You will both be able to take pride in the fact that you have learned something new together. Use your cooking together night as a way to build excitement and this is a sure way to create a lot of fun.
Eating together => There’s just something about eating together that creates intimacy. Having dinner together is a great time to talk about your day with each other and share your thoughts.
Overall cooking with a partner can be fun and it can help to strengthen your relationship. Just remember to plan ahead and to relax while you are in the kitchen. Try to cook together as often as you can and consider making it a part of your date night routine.
Cooking can be a very intimate activity, especially when love is involved, it will provide you with many memories that you can cherish for years to come. So, make some time this week to spend an hour or so getting in the kitchen and crafting up a dish that will be delicious and help strengthen your relationship. Happy to try it?
