My mom never liked anyone in her kitchen ... okay she didn't like ME in her kitchen. I can remember coming home from college during breaks or on the weekends and my sister was always allowed to bake or cook or whatever. Not me. On the rare occasions when I did try something I would mess it up without fail and of course we still all have to endure THOSE stories every so often.
My cooking and baking experiences at home left me not only domestically challenged but not really caring about either very much. My girls on the other hand are incredible in the kitchen. For the past few years the girls have baked cookies for our extended family as their gifts. I stayed out of their way. I shopped and I laid out the cookie trays.
