to be frank,your husband acted like me,i mean not so maturally. maybe mothers' is always the best in the eyes of a lot of men.just don't be freaked out,cuz he chose you to be his life-partner,another woman who is as important as his mother.

No, my husband doesn't like his mother's cooking more than mine. In fact, he doesn't like either of our cooking! LOL He likes his dad's cooking best! I have to admit, his dad is a great cook, so it doesn't offend me (much) that my husband doesn't like my cooking, I just don't bother cooking for him. hee hee

LOL I'm sorry, not laughing at you by any means. I am laughing at my situation. My mother in law NEVER cooked a meal in her life. My husband's grandmother lived with their family until my husband was 14 when she passed on. And since then he has had dinners that had consisted of take out. It's awful that my mother in law has never once had me over for dinner and pathetic really, she has no excuse now as she has been retired for many years. But one advantage of that is, at least my husband couldn't compare my cooking to her's, and besides I think he is grateful to get home cooked meals because he hasn't had any since he was 14 and he will be 40 this year (however we got married in July of 1999, he was almost 31, almost 9 years of having home cooked meals) still no complaints, no demands and I think he appreciates it. It's beyond pathetic my mother in law never cooked a meal in her life (she is pathetic in other ways but not going to get there now) but.. this situation I suppose has an upside.

I had the same problem with my husband. His mother could cook, she make the beast perogis, bought the best sausage, and the best chicken soup. But I am very good at making spaghetti, macaroni casserole, and I told him that I did not want to be like his mother. I had a good reason to. My husband was Mennonite and it seems that the women die sooner than the men. It must be because they do not eat as healthy or the men get all the best food.

He did and still does like certain food prepared like his mom did it. Can't send him home though since she is now passed away. It frustrates me to no end because I do not like the way his mom did it and so I have to prepare two different ways because why should I eat her way if I don't like it that way. She was a bland cook. There are alot of dishes that I fixed that he wouldn't eat at first because he said he never liked it, but I told him I fix things totally different then his mom so he had to atleast take one bite of it before judging it. He did and he actually liked it, then they are some he didn't like so much. Not everyone cooks alike thankfully but I think that everyone should try it atleast once before saying they don't like something.

My husband use to complain alot about my cooking not being like his mothers... I was brought up to always try a spoonful of something new, my husband however was not. My family we also tried so many new foods that I've lost count. This was such a change for him. I remember fixing meals that I enjoyed only to have him refuse to eat it because it was something he'd never had before. I remember talking....okay bawling my eyes out to my mother because he would rather have a can of soup instead of what I had made. I even fixed myself supper and told him I didn't care what he did for supper. We now have been married 5yrs and he has become very tolerant of new receipes and new foods. I have also learned to ask his opinion. I have a few receipes marked in my cookbook.. He doesn't like or don't put this in and such. Occasionally he will complain about something not being how his mom makes it... The next night I make him cook...just to refresh his memory of his bachlor days. lol

I remember when I was married to my first husband how he would tell me that my cooking didn't taste anything like his mother's cooking. My response was "no, mine tastes better!" That made him angry. He knew that his mother didn't cook well. There was only one dish that I really enjoyed that she made. It was bean soup.

I cook good, but my husband is a pick eater..and since he's been with his mom for so long, she knew what he likes best. He eat anything what his mom cooks without a word. He doesn't say my cooking is bad or as not as good as his mom though. But sometimes I get this feeling of jealousy sometimes, like I wish I knew all his mom's recipes and I'd cook them all to him. I have a different sets of foods that I like compare to him, I like Asian foods, and he likes a few, he's more of American foods, of course.lol

My hubby thinks I'm a great cook, from the first meal I made him nearly 10 years ago to now! He has never compared my cooking talents to his mothers mainly because he and his siblings had to fend for themselves!! Unless they wanted to eat mince and tatties every night as that's all she could be bothered making. His dad on the other hand was very handy in the kitchen, I was a guinea pig on more than on occasion and I thank the cooking god that everything I sampled was lovely!!

Mine used to always say that - his mother's cooking was better than mine; I wasn't a "real" woman if I couldn't cook like his mother. Sometimes he'd walk out and go to mommy complaining that I didn't cook for him (I did, but he wouldn't eat it) and then she'd lecture me that I should be cooking for my husband, that it was my duty. After nine years of this crap, I finally got smart enough to realize that he'd never change, that I didn't deserve constant criticism when I was doing the best I could feeding his kids and ours (none of whom had a problem with my cooking), and that nothing I did would ever meet his unrealistic expectations. I've been happily divorced since 1989.

My hubby is a chef, so...i haven't had confidence in my own cooking since i've been with him LOL He never said anything wasn't good, or wasn't as good as his mom's , but he always has a little comment, like, not enough salt, or, next time you can try this way. I know he doesn't say it to be mean, but honnestly, i prefer when he cooks LOL

I love to cook and my husband has always liked my cooking. I am so glad he has never compared or brought up his mother's cooking. Perhaps I have trained him better? lol

I can't cook, and neither can his mom. My husband knew I couldn't cook before he married me. I get ticked when he every once in awhile says why can't you cook like a wife is suppose to. I just tell him if you wanted a cook, you should of found someone else. I mean really, he was a cook in the Navy and worked at 3 restaurants, why should I cook. Now before anyone takes his side, I do cook every once in awhile, it's just not as good as his.

in our 23 years together the only thing my husband ever complained of in my cooking was a veal parmigiana I had made - he usually loved the veal parm. but this time I was out of tomato and decided to substitute ketchup... bad choice. now there were things he told me he did not like at all.... that I would make and he would decide hey this is good... I guess he just did not like his mother's version lol... I don't know. soups and stews he insisted he would not like mac and cheese homemade no way! (but it soon became a favorite meal) home made mashed potatoes (but now prefers them to box and will easily eat several portions in one sitting)
