    What is the difference to a woman between a guy that can grill/bake/saute meats, bake potatoes, saute vegetables, poach whole meals and a guy that makes like gravy/wine sauced pot roast, fancy mashed sweet potato and bla bla bla and kale dishes, etc? Is the former still considered respectable?

    My husband does nothing fancy, but I"m happy with what he does.

    Those sorts of fancy dishes ar epossible for him, given the time and recipes. But he's more of a simple-food sort, and it's also quick and easy. He's busy.

    He's my "housewife and stay at home mom who works part time as well and has his own hobby too." So, he's busy -- like most women. I jsut work the business and then do some light cleaning and a modest amount of child care. Seriously, it's modest these days.

    The fact that he cooks ALL of our meals is my great gratitude. Is he cooking fancy meals? No. Tonight is steak, brussels sprouts, and some roasted pumpkin. All have beautiful seasonings and taste great. It's simple, straight forward, and everything done in 30 minutes fare.

    I'm pleased as punch just to eat.

    Trust me, any cooking from a man (or a woman) is a great gratitude for me.

    Should it not be? I'm not quiet sure if your asking a hypothetical question but I'll answer it anyways; from what I've notice, save some pig headed members of the male species like the sales man that visited my house yesterday, it doesn't matter to women if the guy can only make mac and cheese or if he's the best cook in the world; having a meal cooked for them is a respectable act, thus to answer your question, neither is more respectable than the other.

    Seriously. Cook whatever. Even if it's not fancy, it's still like a billion sexy points.

    I married an Italian, so there's that (so glad he and I eat the same way now - he used to make the most amazing garlic bread), but most of my male friends can cook something decent. It's kind of silly that it's assumed men can't/shouldn't cook - to me, being able to cook food for yourself is part of being an adult.

    Did you go to CSUMB for Japanese in Monterey? (If yes, *high-five* I did too!)

    I agree with your first part. My thought is: If a guy can't cook he is destine to fail in life.

    Yeah, I am in the Japanese department at csumb. I absolutely love it. The teachers are great!

    Golly, I didn't know. Maybe food porn has made me feel inferior.

    I will agree that there is definitely a line to be drawn when it comes to pricey cookware, though. Having a nice set of pots and pans is one thing, but shelling out major $$ for something that, in the end, can't make up for a good cook behind the wheel, isn't very practical.

    It almost seems strange for me to think it's something special when my husband cooks dinner; it's so common.

    The Japanese faculty at CSUMB are fantastic - so passionate about their jobs!
