Cooking and Romance

There's an old saying that the road to a man's heart passes through his stomach...
Today, regrettably, some women may take offense at this idea,
and we also witness many men venturing into the kitchen,
making their way into a woman's heart...

It can be great fun, cooking together with your date or partner. A friend once told me that a good sign of future harmony with his new date is if they can cook together in his small kitchen. And what if she's not the cooking type?...

Cooking type or not, everyone can not only enjoy cooking with their date, but also indulge in some great cooking for themselves, and even entertain with grace and taste. Dating, too, is a form of entertaining, and the secret to both successful entertaining and dating is: "Be Prepared!". If you prepare ahead of time you will be amazed by the results!

Consider this, guys: being a great host increases your confidence, and the gals love it -- self confidence is the best aphrodisiac. And ladies, cooking can be so creative and rewarding! If you have ignored it for a while, come here regularly to remember what a contribution a great meal and a beautiful table setting can make to a relationship (and for this matter, not only a romantic relationship; your kid/s will love it, and your girlfriend will treat you back at her place!). Entertaining can open a whole world of socializing as well as dating opportunities, as you will see in this blog.

Here I will show you some simple yet pretty ways to set a dinner table, prepare a meal for two, organize a little singles' party, and especially I'd like to share with you some great dishes that you can easily make for yourself, because you deserve it!

And while we're cooking I'll throw in some dating tips so you won't be bored, if cooking is not exciting enough for you! If you are a single parent some stuff here will be of great use to you too. There is something in this blog for every single person, so I hope you visit often, and drop me a line every now and then. You might even meet someone here and cook together happily ever after :)


  1. Dear Irene, I agree with every word! There's an old saying that good words can open even a steel door… so metaphorically I would say that good food can open even a steel heart… I mean that a good meal in a lovely atmosphere leads to open hearts - which is so important when it comes to relations of any kind.

  2. Dear Irene, truer words were never said. What can be more romantic than a candlelight dinner and is there a better way to show affection, skill and taste – all at once, other than preparing it? Food, just like relations, answers basic human needs yet both, when refined, let us reach for the higher domains of our spirits.

  3. Dear Irene,
    I love the idea of Sizzzling Singles and can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve.
    Bon appetit.
