Some dads cook a lovely steak diane. I can handle mac & cheese or burgers and hotdogs on the grill. But the bottom line is, dads cook too.
Most people think moms have the culinary market cornered, but that's not always the case. Dads -- especially stay-at-home dads -- cook a lot and it's up to them to keep the kids on a steady diet of tasty, nutritious meals on an daily basis. My wife is a much better cook than I am, but I've learned it's less about the actual food and much more about taking the time to make an effort. Most dads get that and are adjusting accordingly.
