    My husband is letting me help cook tonight! I've got about 3 minutes before I'm gonna do the steaks. I really love this! When he lets me come into the kitchen and help him! But right now I gotta stay out of the way, until I'm called.

    I know, this is a lot like a tweet, or a blog, or whatever. But I'm just so excited! Cooking the red meat is my job, always was with my late partner, with my BF before Xxxxx, and now with him. I can't do anything else, too stupid regarding cooking, but this one thing I somehow can do really well. OK, time's up, gotta go. It's showtime! LOL!

    He's right here....Cooking is strictly a hobby, but I have been encouraged to open a restaurant. Why bother? That's when it becomes work!! Williams-Sonoma and the cookbook section of a favorite bookstore will ruin me financially someday.

    Art, we need a report on how the steaks came out, OK???

    I love cooking for other people. Believe it or not, I can make batches of rolls for the holidays and not eat one. I can bake cookies for a bake sale and not get tempted.... ;-)

    Oh, and I'm single...

    Turtleneckjock, indulge your cookbook fantasies at the public library. I was amazed to see how many they have.

    As for you guys who want to find a guy who cooks, a suggestion: offer to help clean up and he will be much more apt to cook for you. I don't mind cooking, but keeping the kitchen clean is a pain on top of it all.

    LOL! No, I'm not the wife, nor is he. We're both husbands. But our masculinity isn't threatened by taking on any kind of role around the house.

    And of course you can have an invite. Let us know when you might be down here.

    He loved his steak, and I was happy with mine, too. He likes his medium, but mine medium rare.

    I can't do anything else in the kitchen, but somehow I can grill. My late partner, a chef, deferred the grilling to me, and so did my last BF before my current partner.

    Do you know I can do Duck a l'Orange over a charcoal grill? In fact, I may have invented it, with the innovation of steaming the inside with Grand Marnier.

    But as I said, I'm no cook, I just do very limited things, which my husband let me do tonight. It just makes me feel so wonderful to work alongside him, when he lets me! icon_biggrin.gif

    Medium rare guy here too. Must be my Indiana upbringing as we all like to hear a "sigh" when we bite into it.

    If you enjoy grilling out, you need a smoker grill. I did a two bone prime rib on mine for Easter. Awesome! Very easy to use and no hovering over it as everything cooks low and slow.

    That's my own secret, that makes him wanna cook more. I set the table, always a different theme when we're having guests over. And the cleanup afterwards is my job.

    Ordinarily the kitchen is his domain, off-limits to me. Tonight was an exception. But once the dinner is done, I enter and do all the cleanup.

    Like a master chef, he creates the meal, and then he's done, and walks away without looking back. He has no drudgery to face afterwards. He's all creation, no clean-up.

    And that's the way I want it, as fair exchange for his work of putting the meal together, and his talent in making something wonderful. Plus, to be selfish on my part, it encourages him to create these meals, which I, and sometimes our guests, get to enjoy. He pleases himself just cooking away, sometimes half the day, he's so happy, with nothing to worry about afterwards. Making all the mess he likes, it's not his problem.

    He came, he saw, he cooked. And then after dinner he goes lie down in bed and watches TV. In fact, right now the dishwasher is plugging away, it'll take me 2 loads for tonight's meal. And he doesn't have to give it any thought. I'm glad I can do that for him. Well, a strict division of labor - some of you other guys may be doing it yourselves. Makes good sense, yes?

    LOVE to cook, especially spicy cuisines - Mexican, Indian, Thai - as well as some Mediterranean like Greek, Spanish. Pair it with the appropriate wine or occasionally beer and you have the makings for a delightful evening - just add good conversation with a handsome man and perfection! icon_biggrin.gificon_wink.gif

    I absolutely enjoy cooking. There isn't anything I won't tackle. I have a personal library of over 300 cook books (dating from 1897). And, since I am currently between jobs, I have started writing my cook book.

    I am really interested in the grill duck idea. If anyone has any interesting cooking ideas or recipes let me know. I promise I will not use them in my book without permission.

    With my friends, I do almost all of the cooking when we get together. As far as with my two buddies, I am definitely the cook. But I will conscript them to help prep (with a lot of coaching from me) and clean-up is usually a shared time.
