I’m definitely the cook but we order in a lot because we don’t like very many of the same foods.  I’d like to eat healthy (and try!) but he won’t go near a vegetable or any other healthy foods.  I once used prepared spaghetti sauce that had small pieces of red and green pepper in it, he almost started to cry and I had to make another jar of sauce.  He’s such a baby and won’t try anything new but I’ll eat anything and have the belly to prove it.

Its about 80/20 in our house, with my Fiance doing most of the cooking. I used to be in charge because he really couldn’t cook when we met, but now he is because he has school and work during the day while mine are all at night, so he is usually in charge of making our dinner when I return home too tired and hungry to function. In the years we’ve been together, he has become a great cook! I love his food and look forward to his experiments (for the most part). I do however refuse to eat certain things like saukraut, olives, rye bread, etc. So he gets frustrated that he can’t make certain things he’d like to (I said he can, I just won’t eat them.).

We both still live with our parents- so we only cook when no one else is home. I think it’ll be about me cooking 90% of the time. At least that’s what I think right now ๐Ÿ™‚

I cook once a year–his birthday.  Because I rarely do it, I go all out on his bday and cook a big gourmet meal.  I HATE cooking, so he pretty much does it all the time.  If I’m home alone, I will either order takeout or make one of the easy things I know how to do (cereal, pancakes or scrambled eggs, pretty much). 

Baking is another story.  I love to bake.  I like it because it’s methodical–you follow the recipe and it turns out the way it’s supposed to.  There’s no adding a dash of this or that AND you don’t have to worry about giving your family food poisioning if a cake is underdone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

90/10 me.

But since we’ve been married I’ve enforced a new rule: He has to make dinner now once a week and it has to require him doing dishes (i.e., no frozen pizza, no delivery, etc). He’s getting better at it too ๐Ÿ™‚

He loves cooking and is slowly teaching me how. I’m paranoid that I’ll cut or burn my hands so I need his encouragement, but I really enjoy baking. ๐Ÿ™‚

When we first started dating he did all the cooking.  Over time it was 50/50, now I think it’s more 60/40 with me doing more.

I do most of the cooking. My FH does breakfast on the weekends and is a master at the grill. Everything else I do. I LOVE to cook, so I dont mind. I also LOVE to bake, so my stove/oven is always on. lol.

I’m the cook — particularly on complex or creative stuff — but my Fiance ain’t bad either and usually cooks once or twice a week. Plus, he always washes up.

I would say 70/30 me.

It’s a little more complicated because he often has to make a part of the meal himself because I don’t eat meat.  So while I’m making a tofu dish, he’s grilling chicken…but then I make the other side dishes that we can both eat.

We both are total foodies and LOVE to cook (it’s what we first bonded over). I generally cook on weekdays, as he gets home much later than me. He cooks me fabulous fests on the weekends.

Since Fiance is still on a job hunt, he’s been the cook.  He likes to experiment, which is fun and has only resulted in a few “we won’t be making that again” dinners.  I’m ever so grateful for him stepping up to that challenge.  Working full time and coming home to throw together dinner, do homework, baths , and bed routines was a tough job.
