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!

Larry Wolfe 02-22-2006 06:04 PM

I do most of the cooking.

Finney 02-22-2006 06:32 PM

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.

Puff 02-22-2006 06:45 PM

I do all the cookin', my wife's cookin' scares me :ack: . Dog wont even eat it :grin:

Nick Prochilo 02-22-2006 06:49 PM

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

john pen 02-22-2006 07:14 PM

Prolly 50 / 50 here...all depends whos home, whos working, who gets to the kitchen first..


She does all the baking though..I dont get involved with that...

Jack W. 02-22-2006 07:31 PM

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!

She does in my dream. 8-[

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

You just described my wife to a "t" :o

allie 02-22-2006 09:58 PM

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.

Greg Rempe 02-22-2006 10:26 PM

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.

Griff 02-22-2006 11:20 PM

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?

ScottyDaQ 02-23-2006 03:09 AM

I do 99% of the cooking.

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

Bobberqer 02-23-2006 08:22 AM

I do most all the cooking... Queen Bee does the baking, and is very good at it.. .. the only thing she really cooks well is Chicken or Veal parmigiana.. other than that... well.. that's the reason I do all the cooking

Gary in VA 02-23-2006 08:54 AM

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.

Spice 02-23-2006 04:43 PM

I do all of the cooking! My Wife hates to cook . She does the dishes.

Woodman 02-23-2006 07:25 PM

Weeknights for the mundane stuff ,Laura does it. I eat cereal. The real stuff on the weekends? I do it!

Hey Puff, the house where they filmed Christmas Story is in Cleveland and they are turning it into a museum where they are selling those lamps! Ask John Pen! I drove him and his Mrs past it!

DaleP 03-10-2006 09:22 AM

99% of the cooking is done by me. The other 1% was probably frozen in a box before being nuked.

Pork Butts this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Uncle Al 03-10-2006 12:17 PM

In my house "If I don't cook...I don't eat ".

My wife uses the smoke detector to tell when the food is done !!!!

allie 03-10-2006 12:36 PM

Gee, I'm not sure if your wives are lucky or if you guys are unlucky! I grew up with a mother who cooked every night. Occasionally, my dad would grill or cook seafood which was his specialty. I grew up thinking this was the way it should be and that's how I've always been in my household. I always loved cooking and creating new things for my family. My sister is just the opposite and says she doesn't know how to cook. My brother in law does most of the cooking for them.

Woodman 03-10-2006 01:53 PM

Well, you know what they say............

If it's cooked inside, my wife cooks it 95% of the time. Outside, I cook it 99% of the time.

I cook 99% of the meals through out the year. However my wife does all of the baking, and most of the desserts and candy. I still make the ice cream though. My wife is a wonderful cook but she has always had a very demanding job and I have always had a family friendly job.

zilla 03-11-2006 08:57 PM

I like my situation very well. How bout you Jersey? :!: I'm sure you do too.

allisonandrews 04-06-2006 08:52 AM

I cook 99% of the food in our house. If I am lucky, I can get hubby on chopping duty to speed some of the prep work along. Now that he gets off work a few hours before me, I am trying to get him to cook a little bit more for himself. His new favorite are the omelets that you boil for 13 minutes. Those are terrific and he can do it himself!

As far as outside goes, I made the mistake right after we got married of kidding around about him not taking the steaks off soon enough. I got to grill the next batch and he has refused to cook any since then because mine were so much better.

Same thing with hamburgers. He likes the way I season his, which is a laugh because he likes lots of pepper in his and I can't hardly even eat a food if pepper has been anywhere near it. (Yes, that makes it hard to use store bought rubs. I hate black pepper, but I don't hate heat.)

I do allow hubby to think he does the cooking on the smoker. I let him do all the manly things like playing with fire, etc., but I am the one who really keeps more of an eye on the temp and does most of the basting. I also normally get the very clean job of putting on the rub ahead of time.
