Gents, if you don’t know how to cook, you should learn how! Learning how to cook and prepare meals is a great investment for yourself, the woman in your life, your children, and even the guests who come over to your place to visit. In addition, acquiring these skills and knowledge will help you become more conscious of the food that goes into your body, as well as the prices that you’re paying to eat out vs buying groceries to prepare meals at home. While cooking may be something your lady does for you and the household, it’s always nice to get a break and be catered to for a change, and she will greatly appreciate it.
Women find men who are ready, willing, and able to cook for them to be very attractive. You can win major brownie points with your lady simply by preparing a meal that shows her just how much you care. Anyone can spend a few dollars, call and make reservations at a restaurant, order fast food, or slap together a couple of cold-cut sandwiches, but the quality time, energy, and effort that a man puts into preparing a home-cooked meal for his woman is priceless! This is a gift to your lady, so give it from the heart and have a great attitude about it. Service with a smile 🙂
Preparing a home-cooked meal isn’t just about what goes onto the plate, it’s about what comes out of you. There is “love” that goes into a home cooked meal; that loves comes from the heart and goes into the dish. Every cut, slice, and chop shows your hard work and dedication towards making your lady feel special, and she will love the fact that you took the time to do so. This gesture will require a little bit or your time, energy, effort, and money, but will prove to be well worth the investment in the long run.
When you make a woman feel special, she’ll be highly motivated to reciprocate. In other words, the more you offer to prepare dinner, the better your chances are at getting “dessert”. #WinWin Cooking can be loads of fun once you get the hang of it, and will prove to be a great bonding opportunity for you and your partner in the kitchen. You can engage one another in conversation, ask for a helping hand, and even exchange a few hugs, kisses, and rubs if it’s not hot enough in the kitchen by now 🙂
Spice the evening up with this simple, yet very effective coconut curry chicken dish (served over a bed of rice). This dish can be prepared within 30-45 minutes; you can have the meal all set and ready to go before your lady gets home, or you can spend quality time in the kitchen and prepare it right before her eyes. If you really want to score big, combine this meal with a wine of her choice and enjoy!
