    My FH does most of the cooking. I cook about once or twice a week.

    People think its old-fashioned (in a good or bad way depending on who it is) that I cook for DH almost every night of the week, but I think I have the better end of the deal because he does all the cleaning! And not just the dishes – he cleans the whole house, bathrooms, etc. And he does both of our laundry. I enjoy cooking – it is a stress reliever and I love when he praises what I make – and I am terrible at cleaning. DH is hopeless in the kitchen and I don’t have any desire to teach him to cook, so it works for us.

    I am definitely the one who is busier but I’m the one who cooks most of the time.  I don’t cook every night because we are both busy and his schedule is changes a lot.  He will usually only cook if I ask him to cook. I consider myself a good cook and I think he doesn’t have the experience and confidence to cook, which is why he doesn’t do it. Oh, and another thing, I do the grocery shopping in our house so that pretty much makes me the one who has to plan dinner.

    ETA: I would love it if he cooked dinner for me at least once a week.

    I do a lot of cooking, but he helps a lot, since we get home from work around the same time.  Though last night, DH got home waaay earlier than I did and I came home to already cooked dinner! It was awesome!

    I cook 98% of the time which I’m okay with.. If he does cook its usually a frozen pizza or chicken nuggets though..

    I was on a roll for a while cooking everyday, that is if we didn’t have leftovers from the night before.  But, as my prego belly has gotten bigger I’ve been slacking off a bit.  Luckily the hubby is a good cook, so he usually picks up where I leave off.

    he does most the cooking 🙂 besides the fact that he loves cooking, i’m a vegetarian and don’t know how to cook meat, so even if i cook, he sometimes makes a chicken breast on the side or something.

    @jerseygirl23 Weekends off from cooking rock. I like to make Sunday dinners in the winter too and take the leftovers for my work lunches. In the summer  on worknights I may cook something thats portable and we’ll take it to the park for picnics. It’s amazing how much money you can save by cooking a home a lot! Then I feel less guilty enjoying nice dinner on the weekend and can have a clean kitchen then too.

    He is currently getting his Masters, so he is usually home at night, most often I tend to be going to work at night. I will cook when we are both home, but he understands that I can’t all the time and will figure out his own dinner! He has also gotten pretty handy in the kitchen and will cook for me sometimes! Its a nice balance of sharing the kitchen duties! I would love to cook more often though, one of these days!

    I cook everything except for the grilled foods and breakfast!! We both work full-time and have about an hour commute, but I feel like it’s still my responsibility as a woman to cook and clean for him. He will help when I ask and he always sets the table!

    Oh and I’m definintely the chef in the house.  I’m a huge foodie and love cooking.  He gets involved with me a lot though, it’s really cute.  I’m like all game face in the kitchen, it’s one of the rare occasions where you’ll see me being totally serious.  So he’s always my assistant and comes in and says, “Ok..what can I do boss?”   and we cook together:)  But a lot of times it’s just me whipping something up for us.

    Once in a while he’ll create some weird concoction that will have me weary while I watch him prepare it, but it always ends up tasting great.  I dunno how he does it.
