I do the lion's share of the cooking. When I'm cooking, my wife likes to assist. I really enjoy cooking and I'm always planning my next recipe. Sometimes I'll plan the next weekends meals to get a jump on it.

Pretty much all me in our house.  My wife has gotten better since we got married and can churn out a lasagna or a meatloaf on occasion but the bulk of the cooking falls to me.  I cook all of the meals on the weekends.  During the week she handles the hamburger helpers, chicken nuggets, or sometimes (if I'm lucky) cheeseburgers.

She made me eggs and bacon this morning since it's my birthday but she was nervous about it.  She did a good job on it though.  Very tasty and I didn't have to make it myself  :)

My older son seems interested in cooking, but he's only three so we'll see how that goes.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYGO!  8)

My wife does most of the evening time cooking, mostly as she's at home earlier. I do most of the breakfast as I'm normally up significantly earlier than she is. All the baking is done by me.

The trend among brewers (and among brewers that post in the "about cooking" section of the brewforum!) is going to be markedly in favor of the brewer being the primary cook...such is my case.  It's a hobby for me as much as brewing is, and my wife can do basic stuff, she doesn't enjoy it, so I do 90% of the cooking.  She does baking and sweets, though, because she is more motivated by good old sucrose than I am!  :D

yuppers, I am the cook. When my wife and I first moved in together we made a deal that I would do the cooking and clean up the kitchen and she would do all the rest of the house work. hasn't really panned out that way what with school and her being pregnant/giving birth/taking care of the baby but it's not too bad. She does the baking, making bread etc. And Mac and Cheese. I really like to cook so it's not a problem for me. although lately I don't get diner on the table until around 7:30 so we may have to adjust as the kid starts to eat with us.

I cook.  Wife bakes. We both clean up our own mess. Been workin' that way for 33 years. Don't see a need for change now.. Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

In my house, it's a crap shoot as to who will be cooking.  My wife does most of the weekday evening stuff.  We both cook on the weekends, depending on what's on everyone's schedules.  My son can handle the grill and some things on the stove and my oldest daughter is a fair cook and loves to bake.  My 13 and 10 year old girls have been know to cook once in awhile also.  Supper isn't always pretty but it's usually tasty. :D

 In Ohio, Holly used to do all the cooking. Then, a couple years ago, inspired by all you men, and mostly Cappo, I took a crack at it. Turned out, I'm very good at it, and love it. Works well for me, because I was really tired of eating some form of dried out over baked chicken every night.
   Here in Idaho, with the in-laws, I still try and do most of it. Hollys mom makes chili, which is always crunchy..... ::) And they like their meat very well done. They seem to think the smoke alarm is some sort of meat timer. Holly just started South Beach Diet today, so now I'm struggling to find recipes that are approved for her.  :-\
