When it's time to fix dinner, Nancy and John Mueller of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin head to the kitchen together. Married 48 years, they find that dividing up the work is fun, saves time and yields delicious results. John, a retired elementary school principal and teacher, usually prepares the entree, "He especially likes to grill seafood like Garlic-Herb Red Snapper," says Nancy. "He started cooking 29 years ago when I went to work full time."
