Your “Be A Man” Challenge: Cook Her Dinner

Lisa recently started working overnight shifts in her TY program.

The unanticipated benefit is I have plenty of time for personal projects (i.e. a killer blog). One personal challenge I’ve decided to embark on is a cooking series, as I’m now FORCED to cook. The alternative is the pseudo-starvation diet I had as a completely ill-equipped younger, stupider, version of myself in Lithuania…

Prior to this journey I had a long history of avoiding the kitchen; it’s been a source of strife in our relationship. No longer; time to “be a man.” Is there anything more attractive than a man who can cook a decent meal? Will my efforts boil over? Only time will tell…

Lisa previously posted on our borrowed cookbook library. In my quest to make good food, I’ve been in search of entry-level cookbooks written from a man’s perspective for a man within the Massachusetts Public Library system.

Here is the first cookbook I’ve triedthe aptly titled, This is a Cookbook.” Reviews and step-by-step instructions for my favorite recipes from it are forthcoming.

“This is a Cookbook.” Is it now?

What about you, do you have a favorite cookbook written by a man (or men)? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
