I mean really cook/bake? Not just buy something from the frozen aisle and put it in the oven?
I do. Every night. I love to cook. Im pretty sure that is one of the reasons DH married me! lol I made him stuffed peppers two nights ago and he was on Skype with his mom and he told her what he was eating. She responded with “Well isnt she turning into little Ms Betty Crocker!” LOL (She didnt mean anything mean by that) we all laughed but he told her well actually she does this every night! 😀 The very first meal I ever made for him was salisbury steak and mashed potatoes. Yes, real, you gotta peel yourself mashed potatoes!!! 😉

Yep. I grew up on homegrown made from scratch everything. I even come up with my own recipies these days. I may not cook every night (sometimes we’re eating left-overs) but I make the majority of the food we eat.

Yes and no. If I have the time, I will cook something completely from scratch. But there are nights when we have something frozen or something semi-premade. I work between 62-70 hours per week, so there are times when the last thing I want to do is come home from work and cook a full meal. I tend to do most of my from scratch cooking on the weekends when SO is over.
Now, baking is a whole nother story. I suck at baking.

Yup! I cook but not every night (with just us, we always have leftovers). We still get takeout though (once a week). I do generally make breakfast every weekend too (love breakfast!!).
I don’t really buy anything premade except for stuff for my own lunches. I love some of the Amy’s frozen meals so I buy those for a couple lunches a week.
I do love to bake though and I generally make a lot of bread, croissants, etc.
My mom cooked almost every night so that’s probably where I get it from.

I bake but I don’t really cook much.

@jesssamesssa: Yup. I cook every night but friday.
Not so much into baking though. Not sure why, I love to eat sweets!

I cook every single day! Like breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I bake sometimes too!

I do too. Cooking is my primary hobby. FH didn’t have much of an appreciation for good food before he met me (surprising, since his mom used to run a bakery and catering company), but I am proud to say that is no longer the case!

Yup! I love cooking and baking!

I cook us dinner everynight unless we have a previous engagement with family or friends. Baking… eh. Mostly box mixes in that department.

I love cooking and baking! However, I don’t have the time to make awesome intricate meals every night (and neighter does DH, and we share the cooking) so we do order in or go out a couple of times a week.

@daisyfay: Yeah, there are a lot of foods DH never ate before he met me. So now he is spoiled!!

Yup, we cook 6-7 nights a week, with the occasional takeout thrown in.
I make my own pasta sauce, pasta, breads, etc. There are very few things I buy that are pre-made.

I bake much more than I cook. I am really good with desserts and pretty much everything that goes in the oven. However, I don’t do a ton of cooking because my husband and I work such different schedules, it is easier to make a tuna melt for dinner then fish and rice since I will be eating alone.
Last week I made brownies and two types of cookies. I really love to bake and now that pumpkins are in season there will be so many good things coming from my oven.

I cook a lot, and DH is also becoming quite the chef. We typically do homecooked meals Monday- Thursday, go out on Friday and Saturday nights for dinner and then on Sunday I normally do a crock pot dinner while we hang out at the lake ( in the summer) or watch football.
