I feel like less of a women and a horrible future wife.!. I am a terrible cook and my fiancé does all the cooking. He says he doesn't mind but I feel like he's been working all day and on my days off he should come home to a good meal. I been trying to learn for the past three years since my oldest son was born. He's a great cook and that's makes cooking even discouraging. Whenever I do make dinner he tells me it's good but always insist on making it himself. Lol!!

I also come from a family of great cooks. I'm always asking my mother and my grand mother how to make different dishes and it never taste the same. I don't know what to do. Maybe I'll get better through out the years.!!.

I'm a pretty good cook. Not Julia Child great, but not terrible either. My boyfriend does do a lot of the cooking though, because I usually have evening classes and come home later than he does. He is a better cook than I am. It doesn't change how I feel about myself as a woman. Just because I usually don't cook and probably couldn't produce a five course meal does not mean I'm less of a woman. As far as being a future wife, I have no intention of ever being a wife.

Keep your meals simple...your cooking will evolve the more you do it. :-) Use a crockpot. Toss in meat, veggies first thing in the morning. Set on low and walk away...no peeking! It will be done and delish by dinner time.

Most of us start out as so-so cooks btw. My hubby was polite but it took years for me to learn what he likes...how to cook it. There were a lot of burnt fish sticks and pans of gooey rice along the way. lol

Just learn as you go and keep trying!! I taught myself. Crock pot meals are super easy and almost impossible to ruin.

I agree. When me and my dh got married I wasn't the greatest cook so most of our meals we're done in the crockpot and as time went on I started trying different recipes and finding out what we like/dislike.  I'm no master chef now lol but I am definantly a better cook then what I was.

I agree with learning how to use the crockpot. Also, what do you like? Start with just one dish, practice and perfect it.

Another thing you might want to try is cooking a big batch of seasoned ground beef (I use ground turkey). Divide it and add taco seasoning to part of it and Italian seasoning to the other. Put it in portioned sized freezer bags and freeze it. That way you'll have it ready for tacos, burritos, casseroles, spaghetti. You can have a meal ready in very little time.
