Are you an Alpha Cook?

Yesterday's New York Times had a great article about kitchen dynamics between couples: He Cooks. She Stews. It’s Love. Are you the alpha cook, who does all the cooking, deigning to let your partner dice the onion? Or are you the beta, forced to do clean up and once and a while allowed to sauté?

I'm the alpha in my household, but I sure I hope I don't come off like some of the folks in the article. I'm always happy when my husband wants to help out, and I love to work together in the kitchen.
