Food is a huge issue in relationships.
What should you cook for breakfast the morning after if you want the person to stay? (What if you want them to go?) What if you and your partner have very different taste in food? And how can couples share power in the kitchen without driving each other crazy?
"Back slowly out of the kitchen and go do something else if you can’t look at someone cooking without tossing comments about how they could be doing it better," relationship advice columnist Dan Savage tells us. "That’s a bad strategy for cooking, it’s a bad strategy for sex."
Then, later in the show, Dan helps a couple in Illinois work through a unique food conflict, involving cornbread muffins. Listen to the full episode to hear how Dan resolves their differences.
Looking for the super taster flavor tabs Dan talked about? They have them at lots of places online, including Amazon.
