What % of the board members are male?

I'm just curious. I'm a guy and I do virtually all the cooking in our household. I love it! It gives me a tasty, creative outlet that helps to offset the dry, sterility of my workdays in the lab. I see a lot of references to DH (dear husband) but not so many to DW. What do you guys/gals think?

Stick around. Sometimes I will make reference to my SO (significant other). I am also a male and do almost all the cooking in the house. I have no idea what the % male to female is but there are plenty of both. We guys are well represented.

You are welcome, GB. I love polls. It is great to see other folks tastes or opinions.

I do virtually all the cooking in my household too ha ha.

My wife kicks in once in a while, and Mom can cook but hates to do it now that she's retired but since I love canning and scratch cooking I pretty much do it all ha ha.

I agree, A Poll! A Poll!
