John Donohue, of New Yorker fame, started the Stay at Stove Dad blog to talk about his experiences in the kitchen, cooking for his wife and daughters. He’s also got a book coming out in May, called “Man with a Pan: Culinary Adventures of Fathers who Cook for Their Families,” which contains essays from other kitchen-capable dads.

Donohue did a little Q&A with Time.com recently, which touches on the same topics we’re all thinking as burger-flipping dads: how to cook “better” for your kids, how to reconcile a full work-week with wanting to cook for your family, and when to draw the line with a picky eater.

Like reading about fathers and food? Stay tuned for a regular column from 8BitDad called “NOM for Thought”, coming soon.
