They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.
This is completely accurate. However, did you know that like 90% of women love a man who can cook? Okay, so I may have made up that statistic, but seriously, chicks dig men who know their way around the kitchen. Take it from me, I was a chef in a previous life. If you can throw together a quick meal that doesn’t consist of boxed mac and cheese or ramen noodles, the ladies will be throwing themselves at you. It’s okay, you’ll get used to it.
Here’s the situation: you’ve been out on a few dates with your special lady friend, and things are going well but you’re eager to take it to the next level. What do you do? Take her out to a romantic dinner overlooking the city, or clean your apartment for a change and have her over for a casual dinner and a few glasses of wine? Invite her over, dummy! Think about it! You’re cooking, she’s impressed, the wine is making you look good, and you’ve got home field advantage. It’s a lock!
Okay, so you’re no Mario Batali (google it). No worries, because I have stumbled upon a gem of a site that is going to give you that tingly feeling down there. er, in your stomach. And I can guarantee if you can pull this off, she’ll be putty in your hands. I introduce you to How Sweet It Is – your gateway to food romance.
Sorry Jess, I stole this picture from your site, but I’m trying to make a point here!
Yeah, that’s sweet and sticky pomegranate chicken. Go ahead, take it all in for a minute. I’ll wait.
Jessica is the mad scientist over at How Sweet It Is and runs the table from small starters to sweet finishes- indulging all your senses. Well, at least all MY senses. Is it getting hot in here? She writes easy to follow recipes that even you can follow, and despite her somewhat cult-like following, makes an honest effort to reply to questions with a sweet and nurturing undertone. In fact…
[Hi Jess, it's me, Sabatino. Uhh, hotcupoflove.com? Oh. you've never heard of it. It's just a sappy dumb blog about...you know, nevermind. You should totally come over my place for dinner and wine. I'm cooking. Yeah, it's just a little something I learned overseas, no biggie. What? No, noooo this isn't creepy at all. This is very normal. This is what normal people do, right? Am I right? Why are you not responding??]
This is how I would assume our conversation would go. *sighs*
Well? Why are you still reading this? Start working on your menu and get that girl! Oh! and let me know how it goes. I’m a sucker for a good romantic story. Also, if you need any cooking tips, leave me a comment. I’m not so bad in the kitchen, myself. I promise to respond.
