My Other Half’s 8 Favourite Recipes

By Friday, October 3, 2014

Man oh man it has been a busy week! I am so excited it’s Friday and the work week is almost over.

Tonight, something unusual is happening – My Other Half is cooking! He’s making his famous spaghetti sauce with ground beef and we’re having spaghetti and garlic bread! We’ve both been having some weird food cravings lately. I’ve been dying for homemade chocolate chip cookies and homemade pancakes, and he’s badly wanted spaghetti. He makes an amazing sauce, so I cannot wait!

This weekend he also wants to make me watch Kill Bill and Kill Bill 2, because I’ve never seen them and he says they’re AWESOME MOVIES. I’m preparing myself for the worst.

Anyway, more about My Other Half – I realized earlier this week that I’ve never shared HIS favourite recipes. I am always ranting and raving about mine, but let’s be honest – a lot of the cooking I do is for him. When he’s in town, I always make recipes I think he’ll love. This ends up benefiting me too because, luckily, I love every type of food on the planet.

Here are My Other Half’s favourite recipes that I make for him!

Mexican Meatloaf – this is top of his list. He devours two servings every time.

Buffalo Chicken Dip – again, top of his list. This is his all-time favourite dip!

Guacamole – My Other Half hates it when I make “shortcut guac” which is just mashed avocado with store-bought salsa. But he LOVES proper guac from scratch.


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – I’ve been making these for him since we started dating! They’re still his favourite.

Healthy Broccoli Soup – Like I said last week, he eats it straight out of the pot before it’s even finished.

Cajun Penne with Chipotle Shrimp & Chorizo – Umm this is everyone’s favourite. One of my favourites too!

Lemon & Mushroom Linguine – Simple and so satisfying! He loves it.

Lemon Mushroom Fettucine

Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Risotto – This recipe apparently feeds 4-6, but we always finish it… just us two!
