I have to laugh. I have read some very funny articles and quotes from various followers. On the subject of cooking for men, the man is not expecting a gourmet dinner! Actually, just the opposite. There is no need to get worried, or practice a lot before you cook the big meal. People want to see who you really are and enjoy anything you put in front of them.

The cutest guy wrote that his new girlfriend burnt the toast and cheese for the melted cheese sandwich she was making him. As the hot molten cheese singed his mouth while he chewed the blackened bits, he thought, “man, she did this for me!”. It may not have been like his mother used to make, but it is what SHE made, and that was all that mattered to him.

He enjoyed the quiet time with the two of them in the kitchen. He sitting on the bar stool watching her and she looking up at him with a girlish grin as she fumbles with the skillet, bread, and cheese. It’s like playing house. So what’s stopping you? Get in the kitchen and start cooking for love!


Grilled CheeseBrie or Camembert Grilled Cheese with Caramelized Onions

(For two)  

It’s chilly tonight. Feed yourself and that hungry man and satisfying hot grilled cheese sandwich.   It shouldn’t burn.  Just use the iPhone timer under clock.  Start the conversation! He’ll love it.

I found this great recipe on the internet.  Thought this a good one!


4 slices of quality multi-grain bread, Butter for spreading

Brie or Camembert cheese

1 small onion, thinly sliced

1tbsp butter

Pinch of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper

Start by thinly slicing 1 small onion.  Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a sauté pan. Add sliced onions, sprinkle pinch of sea salt and grind fresh black pepper over onions.  Stir all together, turn heat to low, and while stirring, let cook until caramelized (about 15 minutes).

Lay out 4 pieces of bread and butter top side of each piece for grilling. Flip buttered bread slices over and lay slices of Brie or Camembert atop two of the four unbuttered sides.  Slicing cheese horizontally makes a thin longer piece and better for covering the whole piece of bread.

When onions are caramelized, or brown, then spoon cooked sweet onions atop cheese.  Cover with buttered slice on top.  Heat a sauté pan to medium high heat and melt some butter to grill the sandwiches.  Put buttered side down in the hot pan for grilling and push sandwich down with a spatula for a few seconds.  Cover with a lid and grill for 2-3 minutes.  Uncover, flip sandwich to other buttered side down, push down with spatula few seconds, cover and grill for 2-3 minutes more.  Cheese should be melted through on both sides when done.  Serve immediately.  Whole process should take less than 10 minutes.   Enjoy.
