...without being a dick about it.
Long story short, I married a great lass. I knew prior to our marriage that she couldn't really cook. (Mother and older sister were killer cooks while she grew up so she didn't need to cook, and it seems that they never bothered to teach her.)
She is a killer at making the mise en place, much faster than myself but I'm no chef by a long stretch either.
I am used to putting up with her sub-par cooking, but I'd love her to improve her skills. This last week I have realised this more than ever.
I had the week off work but because we have a young baby and she is pregnant with our second child, we decided to just chill at home. During the week I took it upon myself to cook some dishes that we have never tried before. I'm not talking anything fancy, just low and slow stuff or stuff that matched the ingredients we had on hand, so it was a no brainer to try it.
All dishes were on point and one dish I will pat myself on the back by saying it is the best meal I ate all year, be it at a restaurant or at home.
All I did was follow a recipe.
After my week of cooking, my wife has gone back to her regular routine of making food, but never following a recipe, so yeah it's food, but the flavour profiles are all wrong. She even tried doing something new twice after my good cooking to mix things up but after my constant comments that I used a recipe, I followed a recipe, she still thinks she knows best and just wings it and everytime it's a massive disappointment. I could give examples but I think I have made it clear.
I don't want to hurt her feelings. She is a great mum, and is pregnant again, but the subtle hints to follow a recipe have not worked.
Any advice? Inb4 cuck.

It's more of a drink than a food, but for me it has got to be car milk. The stuff never lets me down.

You replied to two different people, honey. There's a nifty feature that lets you see how many unique IDs are in a thread at the bottom of the screen, newfag.

I'll ask her to watch an episode a day while I'm at work and then teach me what she learnt. Sounds like it could help.
