The first ever guest post my boyfriend, Chris, is going to contribute on this blog is his foolproof Caprese Salad. Yes, he cooks! In fact, Chris admits that growing up, while other kids watch cartoon, he would watch cooking shows of Jacques Pepin and Julia Child. Thank goodness for that childhood, I don’t have to worry about cooking for him! (just kidding). Actually, we both love to cook together, it’s part of our quality time. You know what they say, the couple that cooks together…grows fat together hehe, make that stays together.

We also love to cook and eat with family and friends. Over the weekend while we were cooking with TJ, I happened to have a camera in hand so I videotaped Chris making his signature dish, Caprese Salad. On this video, Chris explains the proper techniques of making the perfect combination of tomatoes, (vegan) cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Without further ado, here it goes:
