Pidot's Pork Chop with Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Salad Bar Fine Dining Recipe



What do women think of men who can cook? I think this question need a good answer.

I have been blessed to have a man who loves to cook, that is because I love to eat! I am a big foodie person and my taste bud never satisfied in looking for a sumptuous dish that will content my cravings. Another thing is that I don't know how to cook, oh well, I know but simple dishes like that of an instant food.

I love to watch a man cooking. It's a big turn on to me when I see a man cooking in the kitchen. The way he handle delicate things by slicing and chopping, makes a petite dish that you will truly love.

Last Saturday night, we are supposed to watch movie together, but because he was so inspired with the food he eat at Claude's and Bigby's (a treat of one of his client),  instead he went to a grocery store to buy the recipes.
