I've put on a few pounds. My wife is an amazing cook but if I don't eat a lot she thinks it's a criticism of her cooking. I've tried to tell her I'm trying to watch my weight but she just gets kind of pissy if I don't clean my plate. What do I say?

Just tell her exactly what you've said here, that you think she is an awesome cook, but you want both of you to be healthy. If your family has a history of obesity, you can bring that up, as well. Keep complimenting her and just regulate yourself. Her insecurities should not adversely affect your health.
