    We both have our specialties.  I like multi-step, complicated recipes that are gourmet eats, and he likes simple throw it all in a pot stuff like goulash.  We’re pretty even for cooking (although we love take out too!!)

    Without a doubt, me.  Although he did reheat some left over chicken parm for my birthday.

    I don’t do cooking- or much of anything else really. He always cooks, and if we ever do take-out I buy.

    I work from home and he has a super-stressful job with long hours so I almost always cook dinner and have recently started to pack his lunch for him. He says he would be more than happy to do it himself, but I just find packing his lunch to be a sweet little way to send him a little love while he’s at work. However, he is amazing at breakfast foods, so he makes breakfast for me every weekend. He makes the best omelets in the world and he also makes amazing lattes…. two things I am horrible at! He also made me an elaborate meal for my birthday which was super sweet. I think if he didn’t work so much we would probably take turns, but I don’t feel burdened at all by having to cook the vast majority of the meals we eat.

    I do it, and I’m a little teensy tiny bit protective over "my" kitchen. But sometimes I let him in there to make pizza from scratch. And he’s completely in charge of the grill. 🙂

    We both do a little cooking  Although neither of us are that good at it!  We try, but really only have the weekends together.  So it’s not that often.  Sometimes we end up going out to eat, especially if we don’t have anything at the house.

    I do most of the cooking, but if I want breakfast, he’s my man!  He makes the best eggs and bacon eva!!  Oh, and pancakes!  But dinner is mostly made by me!

    He does the cooking while I pick out receipes, pick up groceries and do cleanup.  He is a great cook!

    I am too lazy to cook. I’d rather eat popcorn than prepare a real dinner, and he loves to cook so it works out very well. He makes dinner whenever we don’t go out. When I’m on my own I live off of ramen and cheese and crackers and take-out.

    He cooks most definitely. He’s much better at it than I am. I do the dishes. Sometimes I’ll cook but it’s rarely more adventurous than pasta or burgers.

    He cooks 90% of the time and he is so great at it, I always tell him I feel so lucky!
