I use the term "man food" to describe hearty, rustic types of food, usually involving big hunks of meat. Even if those hunks get chopped up (carne asada, anyone?)
But I don't think of it as a derogatory term, just descriptive. I'm a fairly experienced cook, but I'm not good with meat at all. It takes a certain skill that I don't have.
I went through a phase, but once I had it figured out, I was done. I just liked the challenge. These days I only make pretty basic stuff, cookies, cakes, etc., for the boy's lunches or after-school snacks.
Maybe you should fill your Kitchenaid bowl with fruit and flowers and use it as a decorative piece?
