Darling Husband used to cook back in high school and college so he can make just about anything. I am the one who cooks the majority of the time as he works late but when he does cook he makes fantastic bbq everything, wings, chicken parm, and roasted red potatoes. He’s a simple meat and potatoes kind of eater πŸ™‚

My SO is an amazing cook and he likes to do it. Which is great for me because I hate cooking. I like everything he makes but I am always bugging him to make crepes and green chili chicken enchiladas.

My Darling Husband is a fantastic cook and can make just about anything – grilling, sautéing, stuffing, anything -but I hold his specialty at making something delicious out of anything we have in the house. We could have tomatoes, rice, nuts, cheese, and some ranDom meat and he’s going to figure out a way to make a cohesive meal. He’s the reason I started cooking and now it’s my favorite hobby πŸ™‚

He makes chili and tacos, but really I usually end up making tacos more often than he does now. He also makes THE BEST chex mix.

Mr. Lk is an amazing cook. He’s the one who taught me how to make a bechamel sauce and to not be intimidated by French cooking. He’s rather proud of his beef wellington, and our friends and family routinely request his goat cheese gratin potatoes. And he loves to grill anything. His lamb burgers with tzaztiki are amazeballs. Om nom nom. I am sooo lucky to have him. <3

i am usually the cook but he is good at one thing. its not a certain food necessarily more a style of food. I am a great cook but i need to have everything available. sometimes our shelvesfridge go rather bare lol. I am so clueless as to how to put together a “poor meal” as we like to affectionately call it . the most i can come up with is ramen noodles. and im good at making things up using white rice. i was in college so i do know how to survive but im not too creative and the days where its time to shop but we havent done it yet are when he really has his time to shine. i dont know how he does it but he can take the most random selection of groceries and turn it into somthing so delicious. I credit this to him not being raised like i was. they had to work with what they had and they made it work. he loves food in general and has basically learned to turn nothing into something. its a real talent and i love that he can do it because otherwise on our nights when i dont see enough to make a meal he does and it always comes out fantastic πŸ™‚

Darling Husband is a fantastic cook!  But his specialty is fall-off-the-bone, dry-rub ribs.  Slow cooked in the oven all day so the whole house smells heavenly.  Yum!

Fiance makes eggs. I swear when he lived by himself, he lived off of sandwiches and eggs. I do the majority of cooking in our house πŸ™‚

My man’s specialty? That would be sitting on his ass watching me cook πŸ™‚

When we first started dating, he worked as a cook at the local VFW, but in 2.5 years, the only thing he’s ever cooked me is a grilled cheese sandwich. He claims he can cook but just chooses not to. I call bullshit. Haha.

I primarily do the cooking, but not because Fiance can’t.  I just LOVE cooking and want to cook for him.  Although, he certainly has some great menu items to contribute.  He is my very own grillmaster.  He makes my FAVORITE chicken kabobs will green peppers, cherry tomatos, and onions.  I never ate or had even ever TRIED steak before him, but he makes a filet that is (in my inexperiences opinion) amazing.  Wrapped in bacon with a little butter spread on top with some garlic powder and “the perfect pinch” spice mixture.  Ugh.  So good.  He also pioneered what are now my very favorite pizzas ever.  He makes pizza dough from scratch and we’ll usually do a margharita pizza with fresh basil and mozzarella and tomatoes.  It was his idea to cook them on the grill and they are to die for.  Crisp, wood-fired taste.  They are the best pizzas ever and we’ve served them to people agree.  Inside the kitchen, he specializes in homemade chicken enchiladas with fresh roasted shredded chicken.  Yummm so good.  Otherwise if it’s a meal made in the kitchen and not on the grill, I’m the one whipping something up for my love (what can I say, I grew up with a very traditional mom and dad…dad worked, mom stayed home, always had warm homemade dinner waiting for him.  I try to do the same to make sure he knows he’s taken care of!!).  He definitely knows my favorite pancake recipe though, and sometimes treats me to breakfast on the couch on the weekends!

Darling Husband makes the best chicken parm.  I am jealous of those who have men who can cook ribs.  Darling Husband has been looking for a recipe for so long, anyone care to share?

dh is the cook in our house πŸ™‚ he’s awesome! he has a food blog so he’s always trying new things, it’s hard to say what his specialty is. he’s been making a lot of risottos lately though, and makes a mean brussel sprout, which we eat a lot as well
