On another site I saw posts about how some men were into hispanics women because they're excellent cookers and kind of traditional.

However, I'm the exception to the rule. Though I'm hispanic, I only know how to fry things, make rice, use the microwave and apply basic survive cooking skills. But I can't prepare lentils nor any type of recipe (nothing complicated). Not so long ago, I was trying to make an elaborated soup and it tasted like hot water with salt: really horribly. I think I'm at level 3 out of 10 seriously.

So basically if I were cooking, all my plates would be either simple or repeated. The only time I would be varying would be in breakfast (that's more easier). Is this really that imporant anyways? I'm still going to learn more about culinary arts in my career during the 3rd year but wouldn't like this to become my daily routine. I would rather have this as a type of part-time business where you're assisting customers in serving them well-known dishes and explain its history, background, etc. (I'm going to focus more on hotel, tourism and business management part).

In the past couple of years I have been cooking more. It takes time and practice. Look for simple meal that people think that it was complicated.

What an (unintentionally) sexist post. Why is the expectation that women cook for men?

Do women choose men based on how they cook? It's not 1955 anymore.

I'm female and I have never prepared a meal in my life. Nor has my husband ever had the remotest expectation of this. Any man that expects their woman to cook for them is either living in the deep south or in a time warp back to the Eisenhower years. If a man wants a hot meal, why aren't they preparing it themselves?

If you're a cute/hot Hispanic, I'll date you no matter what your cooking skill level is.

I know but sometimes you just bump into those posts. It's like it were some type of bonus to them.

It's a nice bonus if I don't have to cook all the time.

I can cook. I can cook simple things, I can cook some complicated things. I can bake, too. I've learned how to cook because I have a wide pallete of tastes and I don't want to spend $30 every time I want to sate it lol.

I'm just rediscovering my love for cooking; to me cooking is important.
I like to eat fresh, healthy, tasty foods, but don't wanna eat out & overpay.
So I cook...and a guy who knows his way around the kitchen gets major points w/ me

I'm glad you posted that. Because after reading that I knew I couldn't take anything more you said, seriously.

Never prepared a meal in your life. Sheesh.

I don't care if it's 1955 or not, all the guys I know love a woman who knows how to cook. It's just that simple.

How do you eat?!

I don't consider cooking for your man (or family or friends) to be a sexist thing, but more of a healthy lifestyle and an activity that promotes community or love. Going out to eat with a significant other, family or friends can be a lot of fun, especially if you go to special place and don't have to clean up afterwards. But preparing a meal for or with people you care about can be a lot of fun. Plus, no one is anxiously awaiting your departure, so they can serve the next round of guests - that means you get to hang out as long as you want!

My friends and I had a potluck this summer instead of going to lunch. Good thing because we had so much fun that it was 10pm before we realized it! Preparing something also gave us time to plan and look forward to our get together. We can't wait to do it again.

I'm single right now, but I loved being able to cook healthy meals for my ex. And I loved it when he attempted to do the same for me. I also really enjoy preparing healthy meals for my family because I know they're eating something that's good for them and will help keep them around me longer. Otherwise, they eat fast food.
