One of our absolute favorite things to do together is to cook. We don’t blog this often, for a few reasons. 1. Our kitchen is small an it’s hard to set up for an awesome shot or tutorial. 2. We do it so much, we’d literally be posting multiple couple’s cooking recipes a week. Maybe in the future, we’ll up our game, but for the time being we’ll just keep it to a few now and then. But every now and then we get really fancy and go after gourmet cooking for two as an easy at-home date idea.

Couple Cooking

I recently had a friend ask me if I’d be willing to try out her new cookbook- Gourmet Cooking for Two. There was no way I could say no, we love cooking, we love gourmet, and we always have to half recipes for just the two of us. Couple cooking is always something we adore!
I put a date night on our calendar for a cooking night in. We were so thrilled with this book and this fun gourmet cooking for two date night we’ll definitely be doing it again!

It took about 20 shots to get the two above, most involved sword fights or Jacob putting utensils in front of my face, just for the record. He’s a good sport, but he’s still a husband who likes to make pictures challenging sometimes. Good thing I typically think it’s hilarious.

We went for a romantic dessert and decided that meant chocolate. Lava cakes are something we’ve never made and are actually super easy, so that won out of many amazing options in the cookbook.
