We get it! The only people in the world you’ve had to worry about for the past few years has been yourself and maybe your mini poodle Suzie who pretty much eats whatever you give her; so naturally, cooking isn’t your strong point. If you happen to be a chef by profession then by all means carry on, but for the not so culinary enhanced, now may be your time to get cookin’. If your freezer is stocked to capacity with frozen waffles, pizza bites and Lean Cuisines (also known as breakfast, lunch, and dinner) then we suggest you take one Saturday to sit and watch the cooking network. If you don’t have time to sit in front of the television for a few hours watching Paula Dean sear up a pork loin, then grab any of the expert chef cooking books and watch your mouth water.
Cooking dinner isn’t by any means your “job” in your marriage, for all we know your soon-to-be may make the best lasagna this side of the world. However, if you’ve always loved the idea of being the best cook in your family and hosting Thanksgiving dinners, then learning to cook now makes sense… before you start your family! Cooking can also be a nice way to spend quality time with your new husband, especially if you’re teaching him your secret wine marinade while he stares at you in disbelief!
To get you started, world famous culinary ambassador, Walter Staib, has put together some of his secret mouth-watering recipes that’ll blow your frozen dinners out of the water. Preview one of his delicious fares above: Fresh Shrimp and Vegetable Medley in a Coconut Curry Sauce. There’s nothing like a little island style cooking to spice up your home date nights.
