<FONT color=#663399>Me all the way. Jason has a long commute and gets home way too late to cook. He did cook a few times for me after I had our last baby but it was mainly Buitoni and frozen casseroles. I know he can cook though...when we were dating he cooked a Loose Lasagna with Tiramisu for me...all from scratch. Besides I really, really love cooking. I don't sew, I hate laundry with a passion, but I love trying new recipes and cooking elaborate meals. Food Network is the bomb. ;) Alaric, I love Paula Deen too. She is awesome. My son Sean likes the Barefoot Contessa and Bobby Flay. :D</FONT>

2. Who is the better cook you or your spouse?
<FONT color=#663399>I would say I am. He would agree with me. :laughing:</FONT>

3. Anyway, do many of the younger people here or in their families take the time to make their own meals or is it take out city every other night, just curious
<FONT color=#6633cc>Well I was second oldest and am in my mid-twenties...and I cook my own meals. My son calls himself my Little Chef, so I'm hoping to pass on the knowledge to him and my other kiddos.</FONT>
Yea Paula Dean, that's her. I can't even finish watching her half hour show without going to kitchen for some munchies, that gal can cook.
I also like Rachael Ray, I've known about her for years,she's from upstate NY and well known around here, she has some good stuff, sometimes she's a little too perky for me, but that's what made her big, now she has her own talk show, she parlayed her skills big time, good for her.

It's very important to pass our skills down to the children, that's a big problem with a lot of young people today, they don't know because they never been taught, but I suspect many of them just don't think it matters, they couldn't be more wrong.

You guy can make Tiramisu? that's pretty impressive, that's my weakness, i'm not to proficient with confectionery.

I've tried a lot of Paula's recipes and they all turn out great. I get rave reviews every time. (I wish I could say the same for Martha Stewart's recipes. Either her recipes are off or I think her and I just have extremely different taste buds.)

Rachael Ray is annoying. I would have to use scientific notion if I were to convert her annoyingness into a math equation. However, I do get good ideas from her 30-minute meal show, but ideas only. I rarely try to duplicate exactly what she makes because she always makes something really heavy.

Giada De Laurentiis is the girl I tivo the most and her recipes always turn out amazing. They look sophisticated but are surprisingly simple to make. Every time I make one of her recipes, someone always starts waxing nostaligic about the time they were in Rome...I guess that is a good sign.

I'm a food network junkie.

Anyway, I live with my parents (and husband and children) and my dad and I do most of the cooking. I'm the "new recipe tester" and my dad is the mexican food maker and griller. Most of the men in my family (except my husband) are really good cooks. (My great grandmother was a bit nutty and taught her sons and grandsons how to cook, iron, launder, and sew because she told them "to never rely on a woman." Its had a trickle down effect.)

I'm gradually learning the fine art of barbecuing and I tend to use the grill on a daily basis even if I'm not actually making barbecue. My parents have a Viking professional range in the house and that thing is so hard to clean it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Unfortunately in our house, whoever does the cooking, also does the cleaning. Unfair.
