Cooking with Your Honey

Cooking with your significant other is a great alternative to an expensive date night and a good opportunity to learn new cooking skills together (or practice patience if one of you is considerably more skilled than the other). Rich and I love to try new recipes, so I decided to start a monthly blog series sharing the best recipes we’ve found in blogs and magazines.

I’m more experienced in the kitchen, but Rich has been learning a lot as he has more time to cook during the week. He usually picks one to two new dishes to try each week. We store all of our recipes in a google spreadsheet, and we have a large collection of tested appetizers, entrees and desserts. The following links are some tasty (and easy!!) dishes we think you should try.

Bourbon Steak Sandwich
This sandwich is not your typical brown-bag sub. I could not stop eating the bourbon-marinated steak stacked between the ciabatta bread. We added gruyere cheese to accompany the roasted peppers and homemade tarragon mayonnaise called for in the recipe. This is a sandwich we’ll be sure to make again.

Thai Shrimp Halibut Curry
Rich and I have tried numerous curry recipes, and this is by far the best one we’ve made. The shrimp and halibut are a great alternative to classic chicken curry. This recipe is so delicious Rich might be able to convince me to stay home and make this rather than going out to our favorite Indian restaurant.

Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad With Avocado and Parmesan
Maybe it’s my Nebraska roots, but corn on the cob is one of my favorite foods. This salad uses a delicious combination of grilled corn, parmesean and avocado to dress up a traditional pairing of chicken and spinach. Be sure to try this recipe while you can still buy corn at your local farmer’s market.

    I made the thai shrimp halibut curry last night (subbed in cod since I couldn’t find halibut) and it was excellent! Thanks so much for posting that fab recipe – it will become one of our staples too!
