Who does most of the cooking?

In your household, who does most of the cooking?

Just curious because you guys talk about cooking all the time!

Me. After all.......... I want good food.


Just kidding. My wife is also a good cook. We are apart during the week and when we are together on weekends, we cook together. But I'm more apt to cook good food for myself than she is when we are apart.

Since my wife went back to school 2 years ago, I took over 90% of the cooking.

I do probably 98% of the cooking. I also do a fair amount of baking and dessert making. I grew up in food, cooked and managed in foodservice most of my career. Gave it up to be able to watch my kids grow.


Good Q!

I do about 95% of the cooking. My wife's idea of cooking is making a phone call or nuking something in a box.

I do almost all the cooking now. Les was home for a few years with the kids while I worked and he cooked most of the time then. I only cooked on my days off. Now we're pretty much traded places so I cook almost all the time. He does the grilling and makes chili and usually lunch on the weekends.

From early spring to late fall I do 90% of the entrees. Maybe 50/50 during the cold months!

Blade, guess what, you can end the search, I found your wife's long lost sister and married her.

I cook most of the main dishes unless it's fried and my wife is the best fried cook ever. She usually does the sides. And she's a great help with the BBQ. She's so much help, I've renewed her contract for another year. This is her 37th consecutive renewal. Did I mention that she can filet a salmon better than anyone I've ever seen?

I do most of the cooking at our house, even when I travel I pre-cook alot so she can warm things up for supper. My 12 year old daughter named the microwave the "Mommy oven" when she was just a pre schooler

My wife and I are both good cooks. She does more baking than I do.. although she says my pies are better than hers. She does more cooking than I do mainly because she stays home with the children during the day, but I love to cook and I will normally do the meat when she does other stuff.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.
