Swap breakfast-in-bed for a quick-fire challenge by preparing dishes for each other. Choose a prize for the winner before you get cooking and judge each other's meals. You'll have tons of fun trying something new together, and maybe all of the heat in the kitchen will transfer to the bedroom.

Try Some Tunes

Share Your Photos

Can't decide on a winner? Snap a few pics of both of your dishes and let your friends decide who the champion chef will be.
