Put your feet up and relax and don't worry, these recipes are pretty simple ... they'd be hard to screw up. Even for a man that's clueless in the kitchen.

Omelettes: I know you men tend to be visual creatures, so here's a video tutorial on making a simple omelette dish.
And if you're completely hopeless, wake up before your wife, order from her favorite restaurant, place in oven, and look who's the chef now.
