    we almost always cook together. lately i’ve started cooking a few dinners on my own because he’s so busy and stressed with school, but we still cook together most of the time. i do lots of baking on my own though because i really enjoy it!

    I do almost all the cooking because I’m better at it and I like to cook.

    I put “we cook equally” because it was the closest match.

    I do the meal-plan and am the ‘head chef’, my fiance is the ‘sous chef’.

    Darling Husband leaves work usually about 1/2 hour later than I do and he has a longer commute, so I end up doing most of the cooking. He usually does the cleaning to compensate, but I let him off the hook every once in a while.

    That said, there are certain meals that are ‘his’ that I”ll just prep for him and he’ll cook. And he does about 1/2 of the grocery shopping in general, at least. also, I love to cook so it works out.

    My husband is in school so he is normally home for dinner time so its easier for him to plan and cook.  However, there are two nights a week that he doesn’t get home till about 7 pm so I have tried to cook new recipes on those nights.

    My Fiance is by far the better cook.  However, we take turns cooking.  I am learning “baby steps” with cooking, and he helps me.

    However, if given a choice:  He Cooks, I Bake…

    I rock at Baking 🙂

    I do all of the cooking because 1) I’m home more/earlier 2) I’m better at it (he can make like three things) and 3) I’m pickier so its easier for me to make stuff so I’ll eat it.

    I get out of work at 5pm and Fiance gets out closer to 8 so I do the cooking.
