No, my mother is a great cook, but I make more chicken than she did. My dad didn't like it so we didn't have it much.
I cook from scratch, like my mom did, but we have a different diet now than what we did when I was growing up...so, no.
No way. Mama was not the best cook. She was born during the depression era, her idea of dinner was a little creamed tuna on a piece of toast or some ground beef on a scoop of potatoes.
Growing up she was lucky to get milk and crackers for dinner. Dad always talked about him getting a turnip for dinner. NOT good years for mastering culinary skills.
On some things yes, but not really. She did not like to cook but did it out of necessity and didn't tend to get very creative. She stuck to many of the same things. Although they were always really good. She did one heck of an awesome big meal though (like for holidays). I did not learn from her due to lack of interest and then regretted it when I got out on my own and now she has long since passed away. For a long time I didn't enjoy cooking either but now I do and I like trying new things. I am much more experimental then she ever was. I also use my crockpot a lot. She only used hers for chili a few times a year.
No. My Mother wasn't a Cook (Unless you count Sloppy Joes, which I do not.. Bleh!). I was taught everything by and cook like my Grandmother.
NO!! my Mother was a great cook but,, I married a chef when I got older and I looked back at the blackened steaks, or the well done burgers she would cook our food until she knew it was dead lol . I stopped eating that stuff at about 16 years old, don't get me wrong here I make some of our family known meals like chicken and dumplings, or paprika chicken, pot roast, Haluski just my way now I cook from scratch... Got married when I was 19 and changed our way of eating for the better , still to this day I follow a lot of DH'S meals or ways.
