What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? Lasagna


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? enchiladas (basically mexican lasgana. lol!)


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty? I try to cook as often as I can.


How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty? He cooks when I work late. He's good with meat of course. He makes great homemade burgers. And for some reason, he cooks eggs relly well.


Do you cook together? Sometimes! Usually our schedule doesn't permit. :(

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? Risotto and anything BBQ


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? Risotto and anything BBQ (yes, we do love the same things LOL)


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty? I do cook nearly every day. My specialty is Spaghetti with homemade Bolognese sauce


How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty? DH is the BBQ and cake/dessert-master. During summertime he often cooks, which means bbq-ing and I love it!


Do you cook together? Yes, we do sometimes. When we have guests and cooking a lot of different things, we do it together. It works pretty well, although our kitchen is small :-)

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? My spaghetti and meat sauce or my Mexican roast


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? A bacon-wrapped meatloaf or anything sweet


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty? I cook almost every night (or try to).  I definitely try to do so when DH is having to work nights so that he can rest and prepare for the night ahead.  Ever since we joined eMeals, I find that I'm pretty good when it comes to cooking and it's nice to have a plan of what's to be fixed every night.


How often does your DH cook? And what's his specialty? DH tries to cook those nights that he is off, but that doesn't always work.  His specialty is 50s-Style Chicken (think of it as beef stroganoff, except you use chicken instead of beef).


Do you cook together? Sometimes, but our kitchen is a bit small, and DH doesn't always know what to do, and I'm not very good at delegating tasks to be done while I'm in the middle of preparing food (which is usually when he comes in the kitchen to ask what he can do to help).

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? Manicotti


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? Any flavorful chicken


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty? I'm good at italian - Lasagna, Manicotti, fancy mac'n'cheese, etc. I would say I cook just about as often as he does!


How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty? The more complicated the dish, the better he is at it! Strange as that may sound. He can't slice bread or fold a burrito, but he can make some incredible pineapple teriyaki chicken over rice. He's funny, he loves to cook but only if it is interesting to him. =P We kind of take turns cooking, depending on what we are in the mood for! Pretty much if he can't cook it I can, and vice versa. 


Do you cook together? We don't really have a big enough kitchen to justify that, haha.

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? Fresh vegetable stir-fry or vegetarian enchiladas


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? Since he eats meat, he loves making himself chicken parm


How often do you cook? And what's your specialty? I'm more of a baker - that's when I'm left alone (happily) in the kitchen - any cake, cupcake, cookie is my favorite :)


How often does your DH cook? And what's his specialty? He makes a mean zucchini crab cake (vegetarian for me <3) and apparently his chicken parm is rockin'


Do you cook together? Almost always. A couple times a month one of us will be very busy and the other will cook dinner alone, and some nights he's out or I'm out, so the other one just makes something for her/himself, but otherwise we always make dinner together. (Okay, and yes, there's some take-out in there too ;)


Since we both work the same hours, it only makes sense that we put in the same time in the kitchen. Not only is it an issue of fairness, but we genuinely enjoy that time and work well together. Also, I don't care if DH eats meat, but I won't cook any of it (red, white, or seafood), so if DH wants it, that's on him.

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? Baked chicken! I love putting parsley on it and use my favorite seasoning - MCCORMICK HERB AND GARLIC!


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? Smothered Chicken! My baby's love's my chicken and gravy! I make the gravy from scratch!


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty? I would love to cook everyday, but I have such a busy, crazy, hectic life! Everyone loves these scalloped potatoes that I make with lots of butter, parsley and top them with onions! Yum, yum! I make a mean caramel cake too and just recently, sweet potatoe pie! 


How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty? I am soooo blessed! My DH cooks all the time! If he gets home before I do, he cooks dinner and he makes me breakfast in bed every Sunday! His specialty - Turkey necks in gravy and I do not like beans, but my DH makes a mean pot of Pinto Beans!!! So good!


Do you cook together?  YES, YES, AND YES!!! DH loves this or he just likes us hanging around one another in the kitchen.

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)?


There are so many, but my mom's family recipe of spaghetti and meatballs is one of my favorites.


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)?


He loves to cook anything Italian. 


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty?


I feel horrible saying this, but since most of the time, DH is working at night, I really don't do much cooking.  I just don't feel like cooking for myself.  When his schedule has him at home, we cook together all the time.  Italian cooking is my love and I've been attempting to get a Sicilian cook book to do a mini version of Julie and Julia.  : )


How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty?


He loves to cook and usually will "fight" me to cook.  LOL.  His specialty has become a chicken dish where he makes a rub and then bakes the chicken.  Yummy!


Do you cook together?


Yes, we do.  It's such a fun thing to do for both of us.

What's your favourite dish (you cook at home)? pan fried chicken with homemade mac n cheese. i dont mean to toot my own horn, but OMG!


What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)? he always says my mac n cheese is his favorite, but other then one crock pot fail, he ALWAYS loves my cooking, which is a huge complement bc i grew up eating most meals out, and he grew up with a mom who cooked every meal every day, so i pretty much had to teach myself the art of cooking. 


How often do you cook? And what's you specialty? 6 nights a week, and order out one night. i dont have a true specialty, i honestly think mostly everything i make is really good! like i said, other then my 1 crock pot fail haha. it was a new recipe that quickly made it into the "never again" pile. we actually couldnt even finish our plates and wound up heating up leftovers from the night before


How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty?  when its nice out, he cooks everynight because we grill and thats his department. now that its winter, he will cook a couple times a month if i dont feel like it, or if im making a meat that i dont know how to cook. hes pretty good at that! like, i cant cook a burger to save my life. thats allll him! 


Do you cook together? every night! he makes a mean side salad, so thats his job bc we have them with 90% of our meals. if we arent having salad, he just sits in the kitchen with me and we talk about our day since thats usually the first time we get to actually talk after our daughter goes to bed (she eats before he gets home from work)

Steak and cheesy taters.

What's DHs favourite dish (you cook at home)?
He likes my cheesy sausage and rice.

How often do you cook? And what's you specialty?
I cook almost every night. My specialty, though, is baking:)

How ofter does your DH cook? And what's his specialty?
DH cooks dinner about twice a year. Hahaha. His specialty (ie the only thing in his cooking repertoire) is breakfast for dinner. He can make eggs, sausage, toast, and pancakes. Bless his heart.

Do you cook together?
He usually tells me about his day in the kitchen while I make dinner. But he doesn't really participate. Lol.
