Help - newby cook vs finicky eater

swvr | Feb 27, 2008 01:47 PM

My boyfriend is a great cook and finicky eater - he doesn't like anything too plain or bland, but on the other hand anything too spicy or rich upsets his stomach. I'm a beginning cook who can and will eat anything under the sun. This means, unfortunately, that more times than not I'll unknowingly serve up something that's fine for me and totally inedible to him, and then he's hungry and I'm discouraged and it's just a mess...

Can y'all help restore peace in the household (or at least keep me from clocking him with a frying pan) with recipes for anything that's tasty, not too rich, and relatively foolproof? I would really, really appreciate it...
