I put my Sierra Nevada apron on and I'm off and running. Seriously though, I'd say I do about 85-90% of the cooking here. I'm a control freak so I like controlling what is going in my stomach. Last night I actually made an awesome meal of filet mignon with smashed potatoes and spinach. I finished the steak off with some Scotch Ale reduction that was totally amazing...

Anything but pies, cakes, and the ilk. That's what my wife does best. She doesn't really like cooking but loves baking. :shrug:

Me! I do about 90% of the cooking here as well, and I love doing it. Last night's dinner was tuna and california rolls with steamed edamame. I'm with Melana- cooking and brewing are perfect partners

We split the cooking duties- who ever is in the mood, or gets home from work earlier cooks. We both love to cook.

He's more the stir-fry/quick meal guy, making a lot of Thai food. I'm the ideas person, or the one who makes the long, involved meals. I make quick ones, too, but a perfect day for me would involve making sauce and gnocchi, or sauerbraten, or golabki. I like ethnic comfort food in the fall/winter.

Same here!

I love cooking. I spend all day in the kitchen, sometimes. If I had the time at night, I would probably cook all our dinners. At least, that's what I used to do.

Beer is good for anything from hot dogs to heartache.

I used to do it for a living. I am classically trained in Haute Cuisine. I have things like homemade Demi Glace in the freezer. It is my favorite creative outlet.

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.

Not me.

But seriously, yeah, I do all the cooking for my wife and daughter. I like to get fancy every now and then, but sometimes just don't have the money to support the habit.

I do, however, homebake all our family's bread every week. That reminds me I need to make some Whole Wheat for my daughter tonight.

I Love to cook. I would enjoy making fancy dishes and presenting food even more but with 8 people in my family, I make alot of quick casseroles, meatloaf, etc... Unlike brewing, when I cook, I rarely follow a recipe. I don't think I've made meatloaf the same way twice. Usually around lunchtime I start to think about dinner and think about what we have at home, I'll start piecing toghther an idea of the final product in my head.

I cook quite often. Most of my meals are quick comfort food but I like to get freaky every now and then. Keys to making plain meals something special is always have chicken or beef stock and fresh herbs.

Redskins SUCK !! lol.
