Was your mom a good cook?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
When you were a kid? Mine wasnt, haha. She has 3 or 4 things she knows how to make and they are all gross. One year, she let me eat nothing but pizza lunchables, sour cream and onion chips and oreos for every meal. Blech...I guess that's why I'm a stickler for healthy eating now. She would tell people that I was picky and there ass nothing she could get me to eat but the truth was she just didn't cook anything. I will try anything and I'm a real foodie.

She also freezes everything! She'll cook a steak, freeze it, then eat it a month later. Weird to me!

My mom, grandma and grandpa were all very good cooks.  My dad was a pretty good cook also.

She could get by. But she stuck to a few things, not adventurous at all!

Yes she was. I learned how to cook a lot of things from her. i actually probably bake more than she did but she always cooked meals for us and they were mostly healthy. My kids love her spaghetti and when I make spaghetti they tell me its almost as good as her's. Since I do it exaclty like she did, haven't figured out why her's is better.

She does ok when she wants to. When we were kids though she never had much time, so we had a lot of quick meals.

My mom was and still is amazing. She taught me what I know. I did date a chef for years, so I picked up some
Extra tips that I passed to her;)
