As we enter a new year, you may start looking for ways to improve your relationship and spend quality time with your partner.

Have you ever considered cooking with your partner?

Many people see cooking as one of life’s necessary evils, one of those things you must do to take basic care of yourself and prevent you from spending all your money on takeout food.

However, cooking is a great way to get closer to your partner and spend more time together at the end of the day. If you’re not quite convinced, here are a few reasons why that is.

You’re working together

Think about it: with work, outside friends, family matters, and other issues we encounter daily, how often do you and your partner work together to get something done throughout the day? Cooking is a small way to complete a task together and experience what it’s like working together. 

When making a recipe, you can split the steps with your partner, and by the end, you have a product you can enjoy together, making the experience worth it.

You’re giving each other an act of service

If you’re not a big fan of cooking, one way to start embracing it with your partner is to reframe how you think about it. Instead of thinking about it as an annoyance, think of it as an act of service your partner gives you and you give them. You’re making a meal for each other that will nourish one another. It’s very caring and a great way to express your love for one another.
