    @zagora: Nope! But he’s only good at one thing, he makes the absolute best burgers in the world. So his parents will be doing all the cooking, thankfully.

    My husband is a better cook than I am, lol.  He actually did the majority of Thanksgiving dinner last year, and my parents were very impressed!

    Oh yes. One of the many perks of being married to a chef.

    Darling Husband is an expert at roasting poultry.  That is one of his 3 or 4 things he can cook.  So, he gets to roast the turkey.  That frees me up to cook EVERYTHING ELSE!

    @zagora: I used the pumpkin whoopie recipe out of Whoopie Pies and their marshmallow filling with added nutmeg and cinnamon

    *edit: realized I had alterations, PMing those

    No, but we don’t host. I always make one dish to bring. If we had guests, he would be helping.

    It’s my FH’s first Thanksgiving or holiday with my family. 

    He’s planning on bringing Pernil, or a latino roast pork shoulder dish. It’s what he associates with Thanksgiving, and wants to share it.

    He’s a great cook and probably cooks for me at least 3 days a week so I’m confidnt. Who knows how my paent will take it.

    He helps cook whatever needs cooking the day of. He usually does most of the cooking for us as it is. This year the stuff we are bringing doesn’t involve much cooking though and since I work the late afternoon of Thanksgiving I will cook my Chess Pie tonight and he will handle our broccoli salad and grilled cauliflower dish.

    My husband is a great cook! Never follows a recipe, but his stuff always turns out incredible. 

    I am decent, but I usually have recipes lol. 

    His favorite dish in my family is his lasagna and garlic mashed potatoes – both are great! This thanksgiving we’re doing Italian style, so he’s making stuffed manicotte and I’m making chicken parm. Very excited for it!


    I tell you, it’s been a lifesaver having a cooking husband! One week after we got married, he was cut from 40 hrs to 10 hrs at work, so I ended up having to take on another job (three total), so I worked almost every day of the week. It was SO nice to know that my stay-at-home-husband was making me dinner every night 🙂 or during my first trimester of pregnancy, he made all the meals because I was too tired or too sick. He’s amazing!

    Yup. He’s doing almost everything. He usually does our normal cooking too. I’m making the pies and a mac and cheese dish.

    I usually do all of our cooking. However, on holidays, Darling Husband really is a huge help. We work as a team in the kitchen. He usually will help with all of the prep and then always handles the meat. It’s really nice to have someone to lean on since we usually have a ton of people that want to eat our food!
