my quest to become the perfect wife

I've found that the easiest way to earn "wife points" is by cooking. What guy doesn't love a home cooked meal or treats that were baked with him in mind? Since hubby isn't supposed to eat sugary treats during race season, I decided to make his favorite homemade granola bars.

Naturally, I would have rather made a batch of cupcakes so I could indulge a little myself. But these bars made hubby blissfully happy, and I really can't complain because I snuck out and bought a delicious cannoli just for me.

What do you like to cook for your man?

5 confessions:

i've made scones and cinnamon rolls in the last couple of weeks. matt always says that i need to stop making it cause he doesn't need to eat it, but he's double fisting cinnamon rolls as he says this so i never take him seriously. :)

Definitely meat and potatoes!! And occassionally, I'll throw in a KitKat bar!

Well my husband loves sweets too but he also loves nothing more than some fried chicken, collard greens and pinto beans. Gotta love the good ol southern boy. :)

My husband is just so happy if I cook ANYTHING that you would think Paula Deen made dinner. ;-)

I usually cook savory things like dinner (fish, pasta, risotto) rather than sweets. You'd think I'd inherit the baking gene because my mom is all about cookies, but I guess not!
