    I prefer my dads. Mr. Shefs mom can cook some really good stuff and he can do the same but nothing compares to my fathers cooking.

    I notice little differences like that too… Just the way potato bake or lasagne is made by SO’s family just doesn’t feel right! Love my mum’s cooking!

    And I’m with you there on the lumpy potatoes! 🙂

    Sadly, my mother has like 259720 jobs so she’s NEVER home to make dinner. I remember my first birthday out of their house I came back for a family dinner and my mother didn’t cook. I was so disappointed. I’d have to say his family is better because I don’t remember my mother’s cooking haha

    We are food spoiled! Our families are so different but both cook so well. He is Mexican and his family is very traditional. I can finally make beans, just like his mama’s, but the rice is not easy! His sister makes the best fluffy and full of flavor rice in the world! My family is Italian and has recipes from Italy with 12 hour sauces and melt in your mouth meat balls. For Thanksgiving his family does Mexican food, I do turkey and all of the sides. We split up the holiday so we can get the best of both worlds!

    Definitely prefer my family’s cooking.  We LOVE food, and I’d say slaving over a stove is a way to show you care about your family.

    My husband’s family aren’t really like that.  For his sister’s birthday, his mom bought a storebought cake a two weeks in advance, froze it, then left it on the counter for 3 days prior to the party.

    To me, that’s just a crime against cake.

    They also precook everything for Christmas dinner the week before and reheat it in the microwave the day of.

    It’s a toss up, there’s some things my family makes really well, and some his.  For Thanksgiving stuff, though, we are always with my family, so I can’t say I’ve had their turkey or mashed potatoes.

    Definately mine. There are a few dishes his mom makes that he loves (they involve potaoes and 1 stick of butter) which I refuse to make.
