Haha I'm a guy, but you guys are all mentioning your households and wives and long-time significant others. I'm just a 20-year old college student who enjoys trying to cook and failing miserably everytime!
My wife took upon herself teh role of cooking when we first got married. But I was always hovering around saying things like "Why don't you try adding some of this, or some of that?" to whatever she was making. I've always been so curious and had a need to try new and different things. After about 6 months or so, she gave up and said something to the efect of "I'm done. You won't leave me alone, so you do it." And I've been doing it for about 27 years now.
So you other guys beware. If you truly enjoy cooking, go ahead and pester your wives. You'll soon enough get the job. Or better yet, she will accept your imput and you can become a great cooking team. But if you just want to fire up the grill occasionally, or make some hot wings to go with the game, leave her alone.
Fortunately for me, I love cooking, and don't mind the job as household cook.
