    As I was chopping onions

    for a sauce my mother wanted me to make, my eyes started to burn like hell. Usually on tv and in movies, whenever a character is chopping onions, their eyes begin to water and they "cry." Many of my own friends say that they cry as well. But, of course, I don't. Instead, my eyes...

    My aunt is so used to my uncle doing all the cooking.  She usually forgets to take meat out for dinner.  We got home at 8 and she went to bed, so I went in there and made dinner for my cousins and me.  I made chicken pot pie and green beans cooked in...

    Again Tonight.

    My cousin marinated and fried chicken strips, they were sooo good!  I baked sliced potatoes in sour cream and ranch dressing, topped with a thick layer of cheese.  It was delicious.

    When I Lived At Home

    The Husband That Makes Dinner!

    It's kind of strange that my parents had 4 children. Three boys and one girl. All of the boys (46,58 & 62) make ALL of the meals in their households while my sister eats a balony sandwich just about every night that she doesn't stop at my parents home for dinner. I jokingly...

    Almost Always Do

    I like to cook.  I enjoy making dinner.  My wife likes to cook too but I don't believe she enjoys it as much as I do.  That's fine because I really like cooking and baking.  She is an excellent help in the kitchen and does cook dinner from time to time but it just has worked...
