Hate to say it so soon after Mother's Day. BUT...
Until I was a teenage, my Blessed Mom wouldn't let me in the kitchen except to eat, shuck corn, shell beans, wash dishes, put away groceries or clean up. (It WAS a SMALL kitchen).
Reasons I was in the way, I bothered her, I distracted her, it was faster for her to just do it by herself.
By the time she graciously said it was time to teach me how to cook, I was no longer interested.
!!!! RED FACE !!!! I am 60 yo and only cook 7 things, mostly with mixes and kits.
Luckily, my Sweetie Jack was a 30 yo bachelor when we met and was already a GOOD COOK! And he likes to cook. (And do dishes - I REALLY LUCKED OUT ! He does hate laundry, which I don't mind at all. We're an ideal match)
So, when Matthew was little, you better believe I had him in the kitchen "helping" and learning. Then in high school, Matthew took Home Ec. By the time he graduated, he way surpassed me in cooking!
