I absolutely love cooking with my boyfriend and the food tastes much better when we've both helped and we get to enjoy it together.

I wonder if the food tastes better because your boyfriend's a better cook.

Cooking with my partner is one of my favorite parts of the day

Rarely. He doesnt really know what he is doing in the kitchen. I also like my space in there.

As often as we can. Right now that's not all that often, but we try.

Too bad there's no "other" option. When I lived in the dorms at college, my boyfriend came over once a week (approximately) and about every third or fourth visit he would help me cook. However now that he has a lot more hours at work, which is a kitchen where he slaves all day and basically is the owner's bitch without the benefits, he doesn't even want to look at the kitchen after work. Some days he doesn't even feel like eating, poor boy

We usually Tag Team cook. Sometimes he'll do it all, he really likes to cook (it has something with him being a control freak, he likes to do things his way) and sometimes it's all me. But, I'd say most of the time, it's shared.

When I'm cooking alone, he comes in and asks me questions why I'm not doing it his way. *sigh* I'm not one to sit in the kitchen, while long cooking things are in the oven or on the stove. I'll go and do other things, and take a timer with me. He says I "abandoned" the food. Food doesn't cook faster if you sit on the chair in the kitchen and open the oven every few minutes and look at it, or stir stuff so much it falls apart. He drives me crazy the way he cooks, he's too involved. Sometimes purity and simplicity is best. I tend to do all my preparation, put the stuff in the oven and leave it be. I don't constantly add new ingredients. I like the flavors to shine through, simple and elegant. He keeps adding things until the flavors are muddy. We have different styles. We usually bicker when we cook together. He also makes unbelievable messes. How can one fling herbs ALL OVER the kitchen, just chopping enough to flavor a single dish? I find stuff all over the next day.

It's better than him not cooking at all, though. But, he cooks with mushrooms and bell peppers a lot, which he loves and I hate. So, I try to add olives to what ever will work. It's one of the few things he'll actually pick out of his food. I'm not mean enough to use liver sausage or liver pate, that would be mean. He actually gags at the smell of any type of liver.

I have never cooked with a boyfriend, but I definitely would like to because I love to cook

We try to cook together a few times a week when neither of us is busy at dinner time. We look forward to it on the weekends especially.

I am responsible for feeding my whole brood everyday. Dinner time is the one I hate most because of all the prep involved. We hardly ever eat out or order take out, unless it is a special occasion that I don't feel like cooking for.

When he's working awful hours, I cook, but when he's on normal shifts, he cooks. He likes being in the kitchen and cooking way more than I do.

I prefer to cook my way. I'm bitchy and bossy in the kitchen and I know he is just trying to help but we have very different cooking styles; he's very laissez-faire chef (just kind of free form and not a recipe follower) whereas I am very disciplined and by-the-book and technique driven.

The only thing that we do love to cook together is waffle breakfast. He makes the batter and I make toppings and dice stuff.

My partner and I very rarely cook together but I will ask him for help when I want things to go quicker, or I know he is really hungry and I could finish faster if he put lent me a helping hand.

He can cook, but he is forgetful and sometimes he has ruined food bcs he forgot about it, or forgot to add ingredients, or added too many liquid, etc. I try not to say anything bcs he is very susceptible to critique and I don't want him to feel insecure about his cooking.

He is the expert crepe maker, I cannot make stupid crepes, but he is a god at making them.

I couldn't cook with my partner he would drive me mad in the kitchen.
Thats my zone....

Would be nice if he surprised me and cooked sometimes though.

We used to cook together all the time. Now I mostly do all the cooking, but sometimes he'll come help.

I cook 6 days a week, and my wife cooks the other day. I have dinner waiting for her when she gets home 5 of those 6 days, and I take care of. The day she cooks, I always offer to help, but always get turned down. Thanksgiving is probably the only day we cook together.

Yes, you do.--She wouldn't let me in "her" kitchen if I wanted to. She tells me I am in the way if I ask her if she needs help. So she says I help her by not getting involved.

I use my girlfriend as a sous chef. She doesn't understand how to tell when meat is cooked. She loves meat and wants it with every meal, but if she cooks it herself, she makes herself sick.

LOL! OMG, she and My Man must have been separated at birth! (Both Engineers, both....yanno.) He does the same thing. I insist on using my electronic thermometer, as when he "thinks" the meat is done, it's usually raw inside. "You say it's done, Williams and Sonoma Radio Controlled Two Piece Thermometer says.....117 degrees. .....that isn't done."



I always hear, "I'm not a rookie, P'Gell." Yes, but he is impatient. He always gets me when I start taking charge in the kitchen, "What am I, your sous chef?" Yeah, for the most part.

Don't cook much with my husband ever.
He's the cooker, I'm the baker.
