I love it when my husband cooks. He cooks some things better than me and I love not having to do it all the time. He enjoys it to which is good. I have a few favourites that he does- Chicken and corn stirfry Fresh crumbed calimari Rice pudding and a quick and easy one for those nights when you don't want to do much Egg and mince patties on toast(his own creation!)

My husband enjoys cooking, so I let him do it whenever he wants! Tonight he made cheese steaks for dinner. He is a better cook than I am. He can make simple dinners and he can also make more creative meals. He is even good about cleaning up when he is done. I guess I'm pretty lucky.

It is good when they enjoy it and are good at the cleaning up after!!! This might sound like a dumb question but I have seen cheese steaks written in a few post's but I have no idea what they are?

My mother was in the catering business, and was determined that she wouldn't raise "some helpless man." I have done 80-90% of the cooking in pretty much every relationship I have been in. Not necessarily because I "asserted myself" in the kitchen or chose women who didn't cook... it just seems to have turned out that way. And most of the women I have known seem to have no "problem" with the arrangement... except a couple who felt "unneeded" when they discovered I was perfectly capable of taking care of myself. Whatever.... In an ideal world, I hope to someday meet someone who actually wants to be a PARTNER with me, in the kitchen... until then, I'll keep swingin' them pans around....

They say a way to a man is through his stomach but this is true to for a woman. The lady that catches you will be very lucky. She will never starve! Cooking can be romantic, cook your way into a girls heart. All the best, just watch where you swing those pans!

My husband is usually the one that cooks for both of us. He is definitely the better cook. He also loves to grill so when the weather gets warmer he is grilling all the time. He is a great cook.

It is nice you don't mind cooking for your wife, and good you do it when she is pregnant. It would be a big help.

Both my husband and I enjoy cooking, and we are both adventurous in our cuisines, which is really nice. We used to take turns when both of us worked full-time jobs. But, my husband went back to school, so he moved from a full-time to a part-time job. Now, he gets home about 3 hours before I do every week day. So, he gets dinner started while I'm still at work, or on my way home. By the time I get home, there's only a few things left to do with the cooking usually, so I help out until is done. But, I do all the cooking on the weekends because he does most of it during the week.

It's nice to take turns cos then one doesn't get sick of it. It's good to have tea nearly ready when you get home from work and nice even though you just get home you help out. A good time spending thing.Thanks for response.

I love to cook. I love to eat too. The best times are spent together in the kitchen coming up with exotic dishes. He knows how to cook which is nice. He doesn't clean so well though...so on most nights I cook just so the kitchen doesn't look like a tornado hit it. I never complain about the mess because some nights it is nice to relax and let him serve. The dishes can wait till tomorrow...

The dishes can always wait till tomorrow. Be nice if there were magic elves that came in the night and did them hey? My hubby pretty good with the washing up side to, I probably make more mess cooking than he does, I hate to admit that.

My boyfriend does sometimes cook for me, but he isn't too adventurous with his cooking. You see, he is still pretty new about learning to cook, so most of the time he will only cook things that he can cook quickly in a skillet. I don't mind too much though because I think the fact that he is willing to try to do something for me that he didn't really care to learn for himself is really sweet. Also, I think the time we spend in the kitchen together as I teach him things is also eally nice.

I think it is nice that he wants to and is learning to cook. A lot of guys if they aren't that great just leave it to the woman to do it. Good you do it together to, doesn't seem like a chore when you both there I think. Happy cooking.

My husband does most of the real cooking in the family. I can throw a turkey dinner or roast or whatever togother on special occasions, but mostly I don't like to cook. Baking on the other hand is my specialty and he loves that. It works well for us that we like to do opposote things cause that way everything gets done and we're both happy.

I have to say that my favourite is baking too. I do like just normal everday cooking but baking is more fun. My husband loves my chocolate cake. And my son loves my banana muffins. Thanks.

My ex boyfriend (does this count? hehehe) cooked for me often. He loved pampering me and cooked dishes that were enough to feed an army. That was fun while it lasted :)

My wonderful hubby is an awesome cook! When we first met, I was working third shift as a nurse. I had to work Easter Sunday which he thought was terrible. I came home from work and went to bed. When I awoke at 3 PM, he was sitting in the driveway in his car. He came to the door and rang the bell, and asked if I was hungry. In his car he had a ham, potato salad and green beans that he had prepared. Yeah, I held on to that guy and married him! Ha!

Yes, my husband cooks for me. That's one thing why I consider myself lucky because I know how to cook but I am not really good at it. My husband is a great cook and always finds a way to make a simple, ordinary dish seem like new and special. It's nice that your husband cooks too. Anyways, we don't have any problems unlike other men who sticks to the old-fashion thing that it's the women who should cook. I really think that whoever wants to do it, then he or she should do it. And if the man loves cooking and is a good cook, why not let him be. My husband's specialties are: chop suey, buttered garlic shrimp, menudo, beef steak, pancit bihon and pancit canton, adobo, and almost all Filipino dishes. Right now, he's trying to learn other Asian dishes. And I am his always available and willing taste tester.

I think it's great too. I like cooking but my husband has a special knack for making something better. I enjoy being his taste tester too! Guess we both lucky! Thanks.

Busy in the kitchen - Cooking up a curry
I'm very lucky as my partner is a brilliant cook and loves producing some wonderful meals for me. His favourite is curries, he will curry anything given half a chance.

I'm glad my husband's favourite isn't curries. I am not a big curry fan. It's good to hear so many blokes are good cooks, or at least enjoy doing it.

LOL my husband isnt exactly all that skilled in the kitchen so no he doesnt cook for me...He's made dinner for the kids mind you (things like manwich, hamburger helper etc) but other than that his cooking abilities are seriously lacking ;-)

My husband does almost all the cooking here. Its not that I don't like cooking as I do, but he trained as a chef so he really has fun in the kitchen. Its not good for my waistline though, he often cooks much richer or more exciting things than I would so I end up eating far too much.

Sounds nice having a husband who is a chef. Thats a good point though, it wouldn't be to good for the wasit line!

No, he doesnt i used to get upset, because i'd work swing shift and he worked mornings, and he would not cook, but when he was younger he'd cook for his lil bros while his mom was at work, so i used to say oh u'll do it for ur mom, but not me. But now, I'm a stay at home mom, so i cook for him. He works long hours and i make sure to have dinner ready for him when he gets home so he can eat then sleep.

Why it is not happening, when the girls cook for the boy friend or for the husband it is the responsibility of the boy friend or the husband that they also cook the food it is not difficult for all because for doing any thing you have to learn the way how to cook or prepare the good food for your or our girl friend so better learn how to cook and enjoy the cooking.

Unfortunately. my boyfriend doesn't cook for me because he doesn't know how to cook. He just treat me to fastfoods or restaurants.
