When you and your significant other plan and cook a meal together, you are learning so much more than just how to prepare a recipe together.
Today’s post is being hosted on another blog called The Clutter Box Blog. I wrote a post for her about the 7 reasons it’s important to cook (or at least be in the kitchen) with your significant other. You can learn many things with and about someone when you work together on a meal. Here is a quick excerpt from the intro to the post:

My social media was filled with posts on Valentine’s Day of my family and friends talking about where they went to eat and what they did with their significant other, and I am reminded that there are so many couples who go out rather than have a night in together.
One of the best ways to connect as a couple is to plan, prepare, and enjoy a meal together. When you go to a restaurant, you don’t get that accomplished feeling of doing this as a couple, and you lose some of the many benefits that go into the entire prep work of making a meal.
To view more, please head over to The Clutter Box Blog and read my entire post there! Also, check out the rest of Angela’s blog as she has many fun and exciting posts… I think my favorite right now is following her Project 365 journey! I did that one year, and it was great to be able to see little snippets of every day.

It is more fun to be in the kitchen with someone else. Plus I appreciate the help and makes everything get done that much faster. We laugh and talk about our day and who knows what else.
My husband should read your post too. I am usually in the kitchen alone, I am going to try to incorporate that habit, may be that could be something new for 2018
This is so sweet! My fiance and I have lived together for over a year but we don’t often make food together. When we do it’s fun though, maybe we’ll do it more now
Thank you so much Stephanie for writing a beautiful guest post for my blog!
This is a great guest post. I love cooking with my hubby. It’s a great way for us to connect.
So cute! I love the photo. My husband is JUST now starting to get in to cooking. Hopefully this will stick. 🙂
I can’t remember the last time my husband and I cooked a meal together, probably because I don’t think it’s ever happened! Though we’re definitely the type to eat out for a special occasion, we just might have to try spending some quality time in the kitchen for our everyday dinners.
My husband and I love cooking together! It’s how we catch up after a busy day
My husband and I try to cook together but we always end up fighting (My mom-in-law says we fight like siblings 😉 ) We both are exactly opposite when it comes to food so this is one thing we avoid but we make sure that we complement each other when any of us cook. 😉
My fiancee will tag team dinner often, s o she’ll cook the meat and I’ll do the sides or vice versa. One we get to hang out and two neither of us has to do everything
Aw, this is so cute! I love cooking with my boyfriend! Once the meal is made, I always joke about what part I did and how its soooooo delcious! “Hey, thats the cheese i grated. Its the best, right?!” lol
This is a great post! I LOVE cooking with my spouse. In fact, we plan meals and cook together several times per week!
The act of cooking, I agree, is truly a profound and beautiful act of love, which is why doing it with those you love acquires value.
This is a great idea and true quality time.
It`s more fun to be in the Kitchen with my partner and family. It`s a great way to spend quality time together
I love all the reasons you mentioned. Cooking together promotes teamwork, planning together, and great communication. I love having conversations with my husband and kids while cooking
Learning new recipes, experimenting together with food is always fun. This is one of the ways we can improve relationships or build a healthy one
Hhhhmmmm….this must be truly nice. It’s one of those things that I haven’t done before with my partner(s) but I would love to. I wanna have a taste of that feeling .
This article makes me sad as I don’t have a signicant other. But anyways, I feel cooking with your friends will be a good substitute. Thanks for sharing
We enjoy cooking as a family. It is a nice experience to cook together, and we like to try cooking new things.
Hubby and I do enjoy to cook together. I also especially enjoy when he cooks and I watch and have a glass of wine while we talk.
This is a great read. I am still single and have no husband yet so I guess cooking together with my sister is what suits me.
