    This sounds like a great stay-at-home date night idea for my husband and me. We have a one year old but since he goes to bed at 7 most nights, we have some free time together and have been looking for new things we can learn. Plus, I watch the show The Taste on Hulu and they always complain about the contestants knife skills. It’d be nice to be better than a competitor on a cooking show!
