    Well my hubby is a Groomsmen of a popular well known restaurant.. he started as a cook there.. so he CAN cook and is good at it.. but does he cook at home? Nope.

    He’s usually only home 2 nights a week for dinner anyway — he works evenings. Usually when he’s home for dinner I cook (I like to cook.) I do all the planning & grocery shopping. Occasionally he’ll make something, but it’s rare, he’s in charge of grilling if he’s home. I think working in a restaurant 5 days a week kills his desire to cook when he’s at home.

    But he makes this awesome Hawaiian chicken, which he only seems to make on special occassions ๐Ÿ™ But it’s delish!

    Darling Husband cooks about 50% of the time. We switch it up every night, and sometimes we’ll cook meals together. I love it!

    @Serey:  O.M.G.  that looks amazing!

     DH cooks but only the things I’ve taught him how to cook!  Up until we moved in together a year ago he had his grandmother aka his personal chef to cook for him (she loved doing it, don’t get me wrong – he wasn’t using her or anything). 

    One day, I was sitting in the living room and he was making dinner and I heard him say, out loud “Man.  I can’t believe I’m using the oven to cook food!!”

    First, omg those pancakes. I want some. Second, yes my Darling Husband cooks all the time. I offer to cook, and he likes when I cook, but he is way better at it. I try to make him something every once a while because I feel bad if he cooks all the time.

    We both cook pretty equally.  I’m pretty good when it comes to recipes, but hands down my Fiance is the best at improvising.  He can make anything from scratch.  It’s a pretty awesome skill ๐Ÿ™‚  His chicken and rice soup is my absolute favorite (and I can’t duplicate no matter how I try)

    my husband and i pretty evenly split cooking duties- it just depends on the day of the week and our schedules. we both really enjoy cooking and eating, so it works out.

    i’m, however, always in charge of the meal planning. he’d be perfectly happy eating plain chicken with a plain vegetable every night and that just doesn’t fly with me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Darling Husband will make sauce from scratch, and that takes all day, but other than that, he just adds corn to everything I cook.  What is it with guys and corn???

    @Serey:  Whoa, that looks amazing!! My SO is in charge of all things involving the grill. And he makes some mean fried eggs!

    SO can cook eggs. He enjoys cooking with me, but I handle most of it while he chops things up.

    His idea of cooking is opening a box of macaroni and cheese, microwaving the noodles with water instead of boiling, and then mixing in the powdered cheese.

    If I am gone all day, he doesn’t eat. He might grab a can of corn or spam or soup and eat it cold, but that is about it.

    I don’t mind. I love it when we come up with things to try together, even though I know I will be doing most of the actual cooking. We do candies and cookies to hand out around Christmas time.

    My husband and I each do about half the cooking.  He’s a good cook.  Honestly I don’t think there’s any excuse for a grown man to be incapable of putting together at least a few simple, healthy meals.  It always boggles my mind when these threads come up and tons of bees respond that their SOs either don’t cook at all or can only cook mac and cheese out of a box.  I’d find that so unattractive.

    I cook about 75% of the time because I love it and it calms me after a long day. He cooks if I can’t be arsed or if he has something special in mind. He also does all the BBQing & cooks all special occasions like Christmas, dinner parties, birthdays etc. He is very good in the kitchen. Lucky me ๐Ÿ™‚

    @sailor:  super unattractive. I’m not a mother, I’m a partner. Its nice having someone cook for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nope, not at all. My SO even jokes that the only thing she knows how to cook is cereal. But I don’t mind. I like cooking and have enjoyed becoming a better cook by cooking for her.

    FI’s specialty is boiling water for pasta. He has cooked chicken twice, very carefully but that was some experimental cooking. His skills are generally limited to pasta or microwaving leftovers (with instructions).
