View Full Version : Mu husband, the chef!
Oh Alissa, I love you!
Your book and videos have so inspired my husband that he is making stuff almost daily. This is a man who never came in the kitchen except to eat!! Right now he's making Blueberry Pie (and says I haven't seen anything yet.)
The neat thing is he runs me out of the kitchen AND cleans up after himself!
He gets so excited about his productions... it's funny. And FUN!

I'm jealous! Whenever you and Terry are looking for a place to go for a vacation, Nashville is really nice. You can stay with us, and Terry can prepare food to his heart content!!!! :D
Deb, you're so lucky to have a hubby like you have. He is one special guy!!! You be sure to tell him that.

Best of luck in your raw doings! --Tracy

wOW! I wonder if showing the DVD's would do the trick? Mine enjoys everything, but hasn't offered to show up in the kitchen yet. I'm thinking....

Deb, you go girl. I try to keep my hubby out of the kitchen. He makes the most atrocious disasters, but I usually lie to spare his feelings. So now he thinks he's a good cook, and always wants to invite people over to try his new amazing dish! barf. LOL. He made coconut chicken last week (sorry, it's not vegan, I know.) with butter, olive oil and coconut. it was such a greasy, nasty smelly mess. It's nice that I can use this diet as an excuse not to try his creations LOL. Funny story. Our fist date, he had me over for dinner, made grilled onion and cucumber sandwiches, and ramen noodle soup, and boiled potatoes, but he never drained the potatoes, he served them like soup. just added spices to the potato water. I ate it, and pretended to enjoy it because I thought he was cute, and wanted to see him again. LOL. I've created a monster :) A cute one at least.
I know! I have always felt a twinge of envy when I see a man in the kitchen and thought I sure wish Terry would do that. But girls... no way I can lose weight eating these rich desserts!! Tonight it was something called "Ice cream delight". (his recipe) His secret recipes, he won't tell me how he makes them but I figured this one out. He made a thick banana smoothie and put chunks date/nut crust type stuff in it. It was awesome but I really feel like I can't lose like this. On the other hand, I don't want to discourage him!!
Helen, I just told him... He said, "Really?"
Anyway, such a problem, eh? It has to be the power of raw because he has never done this with cooking. Try that video sweetlips! It just might work!
AphexPhode - that reminds me - when we were engaged he had me over and had fried chicken without any coating. lol! I had forgotten about that. That was some weird looking, hard chicken! Those grilled onion and cucumber sandwiches might be good on some onion bread. SadtoRaw has a recipe for dehydrated onions. I might do those tonight.

That is beyond cool that your husband is taking such a keen interest in raw food prep!!!! My husband has been helping a lot too...which is a blessing because if you do more of the gourmet stuff it takes time and thinking ahead. And 2 heads are always better than 1 right?!! I have to admit my kids 5 and 2 are wanting to be in the kitchen a lot now too...and as you can imagine it can be a mess. I don't want to discourage them tho...because when the are older and more proficient I will so appreciate their help!!!:)
Enjoy your new RAW chef!!!He will make your transition easier that's for sure!!! Take Care,Michelle
