Who does the cooking in your household?

My mom does. I'll make Chicken Helper or Tuna Helper but I usually eat all of it. It's not really cooking if it's not for other people. Sometimes the best chefs are men.

My sister-in-law usually does. My boyfriend used to and he was actually really good. My favorite were his breakfasts with potatoes and eggs and he made great barbeque. Now I live with roommates and we take turns.

I do. It's changed over the years, now I cook sort of healthy. It used to be a lot more meat. My husband cooked at a diner and taught me how to cook.

I do. I've always liked to cook. I grew up in a big family in Indonesia. I think men are usually older when they discover they like to do it. A lot of men are brought up with their mommies cooking for them. I think they miss out. Right now I am teaching my 11-year-old son to cook and he's interested in baking.

I live with my family and we all kind of do. It's not like we get together and say, 'Let's all cook,' but you come home and someone will have made something or brought something back. I'm the salad master. I'll use balsamic vinaigrette and make a Cobb salad. Ranch is crap.
