    I do virtually all of the cooking in our home.

    Usually two big meals a week (so we have leftovers). Last night it was pork tenderloin in balsamic reduction with crisp apple chips!

    Cooking is awesome it relieves my stress.

    Who thinks that men who cook are sexy as hell? I do. If we cooked together I don't think we would end up eating the food. Just each other!

    I am number five of six children.

    Every one has jobs but mine is putting food on the table. That means shopping for it on the way back from school. And deciding what were going to eat! I'm getting tired. Mainly of choosing different things to eat!
