Heh yourself. This idea will backfire. Women do not like to be lied to and if you expect to develop a relationship with someone you tell this to, the truth will come out eventually.

That's not very likely. A better plan is to figure out what you actually like, practice that, and be honest with whoever you end up wanting to cook for.

It just being the two of you, it shouldn't be a problem. Even a fairly simple but delicious meal should keep the two of you adequately occupied and involved, I would think.

I thought that only happened in the movies. You rascal!

Excellent menu Dawg/ Have her put the salad together and take care of the wine when you are taking care of the meat. Just make sure you have all the ingredients handy for her. Have dessert made ahead.

Easy and impressive Penne a la vodka. Serve it with crusty Italian bread and a mixed green salad, perfection! Do you want the recipe? Or you can search online. It's REAL easy.

It is fun to make sushi or pot stickers. Or tamales.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
