Does your husband cook?

Now I have to say, I only know of one other husband out here in blog land that cooks, and that is Pam's {Design fantatic} husband.
I do believe he is a pastry chef...lucky girl!  

My husband loves to cook and when he does it is always delightful.  I only have a quick post and a few pics to share, but I wanted to know how many of your guys actually take on the kitchen once in a while.
This particular day was a gorgeous Fall outdoor dining experience.
Mike cooked German food.

Of course we needed our veggies and he just doctored up some carrots.

It was a glorius day indeed!

I do have a keeper.
Now don't get me wrong, this is not an every day occurrence here...
but I will say when Mike is off, he likes the kitchen too.

Hubby/boyfriend/significant other cook, or NO cook?
 Perhaps you would rather him NOT!
I had to get this post out here, as Fall is leaving us quickly and I have a few more Fall posts to share.

This looks incredible!! He really knows how to make a spread!! The table looks lovely, too! So rustic and farmhousey!!

Hubby here does not cook. He can make a bagel!! he grew up with a nanny and really likes to be doted on. It's okay because I love to cook, but it would be a treat sometimes!

Sadly my boyfriend is the ONLY [good] cook in the house! My skills are lacking and usually when I get optimistic and try and make something wonderful I see online or in a magazine, things don't end well!

Looks Delish! I love some yummy German food. Looked like a perfect fall evening to eat outdoors.

My hubby can cook...the question is will he cook? lol. I'd rather do the cooking and him do the cleaning cause boy do I hate the after dinner clean up!

Oh Yes!!! My Sweet Man can cook... He's Italian and seems to be a Natural in the Kitchen... However he grew up on a Ranch and He sure can Deep Pit and Smoke Meat that is out of this World... Your table spread looks delicious...Are you going to be sharing that German Meat Ball Recipe...??

It would be nice if my husband learned how to cook.

My husband is the cook in our family. I have to cook in order for the family to survive during the week, but on the weekends he takes over full time. Every Sunday night my parents come for dinner and he makes a new recipe, usually something incredible. His mom was a home economics teacher and he was a latch key kid and the combo turned him into a real chef. Funny enough, my son has started to help him on the weekends and is really learning to cook (and my daughter has little interest in cooking...kinda like me).

No cook here! And NO THANKS because the few time he HAS cooked there is a HUGE-I mean HUGE- mess. The story at our house was if Dad was cooking and the fire decector went off - dinner was ready. I'm serious. I can't tell you how many times that happened...about as many as he "cooked". xo Diana

Oh yes, my hubby cooks! In fact, one of our very first dates he cooked a special dinner for me. *swoon*

I also have three brothers that like cooking too. In fact, one of them was a grill cook in a restaurant.

I am one of those blessed few whose hubby does cook and is pretty darn good at it! He makes a seafood chowder every year on New Year's Day which is just beyond scrumptious! :-)
P.S. Mike's meal looks incredible!

Oh you lucky girl. Everything looks delicious. Hubby here doesn't enter the kitchen except to eat and can you believe he once owned a restaurant! Peggy

You lucky girl! He seems to cook quite well too! I have always loved to cook, and hubby loves to eat, so it is a win win! But in the past few years though, he has taken a bit of an interest in certain things we make. We have found we love to make pizzas together. And bread! Other than that, he does not cook.

Tommy always cooked and he was great at it. I actually gave up doing any cooking during those 6 years and he baked too. more importantly, he cleaned up his entire mess:)
now I'm back to cooking and I cant say I love it..

Kudos to you MIKE for being such a good hubby and for sharing your darlin Deb with us..

This all looks fantastic. How fun is it for him to take over and do a little cooking. No, my DH has no idea what to do in the kitchen. I even had to show him how to warm a cinnamon roll in the micro the other day. lol. I think the kitchen just scares him, but then his mother didn't cook either. Hugs, Marty

You're right... he's a keeper :)

We're pretty fortunate around here; my sweet husband cooks, gardens, constructs, cuts wood, fishes, etc.. etc.

That is a gorgeous table and meal, and I'm glad you shared with us!

Yes, J cooks. He loves to cook and since his retirement we usually share in meal prep.

He is also a wonderful chicken fryer.:-) He fries chicken for weddings and such, for Knights of Columbus. He always fries fish and chicken at home, too...most of the time in an outdoor fryer.

I am married to a firefighter so in a word....yes! He didn't know how to cook anything before he became a firefighter though. They're on their own so they either have to learn to cook or eat out all day. He cooks better than me! He made homemade beef stew last night and I told him I wished I remembered to take pics so I could blog about it with the recipe. It was delicious. I love a man that can cook! Hang on to yours too!! That food he cooked looks delicious.

My husband does get an itch to cook, but I'm not sure it is worth the mess he makes when he's doing it. It's kind of like "here's your dinner honey" and off he goes to watch football leaving behind the aftermath of every ingredient and dish he used. I try not to say least he tried.

he loved to cook a ham? he was a country boy and grew up with hogs and country hams

He is in heaven now

he even did dishes and mopped the kitchen after dinner ( I miss that)

anyway I want a man to cook for me and clean, do yard work, and let me spend lots of time shopping for repurposed antiques

Dear hubby absolutely cooks! He grew up with 7 brothers and sisters; and my MIL made sure that they all could cook! He usually does most of the cooking on the weekends, since he's home. I think he enjoys us pumping him up! LOL!

What a beautiful table! Looks like a wonderful meal.

My husband is a fantastic cook. I do all the baking, candy-making, etc., but Jack is a wonderful chef. He also loves the Food Network and likes to try new recipes, especially from Giada DeLaurentiis and Tyler Florence. What's more, my middle son (now 18 years old) also loves to cook. His favorite is Alton Brown--we've had some amazing Alton dishes over the years.

Let me just say. . . if someone else will do the cooking, I'm happy to wash the dishes! :)

what are the balls, they look like theres potato in them,, looks good, he did really well, lucky you!
My husband cooks breakfast and since he retired he does cook, when I was recovering from the head injury and now my sight has gone kaput he does cook, it is possible to train this beast,, it just takes time and as for cleaning up, that takes even longer training and maybe a big whip, no I'm kidding now whip,,
anyone who has a husband who loves to cook is very lucky in my book.

That looks yummy! My husband does not cook, other than grilling out (and then it's just basic steak or hamburgers). I dated a chef for a long time and oddly enough he never wanted to cook when he wasn't working. We ate out a lot!
