SAHMs cooking from scratch (Sort of a s/o)

I don't know why I even said SAHM, this can be for everyone, lol. I cook most of my meals from scratch, I don't believe my mother would have the slightest idea how to do so. I think the lack of homemade meals growing up is a big part of why I do it now, and it got me wondering if other people feel the same. So...

If you prepare home cooked meals (from scratch) on a regular basis, did your mother do the same when you were growing up?

OR

If you don't, did your mom cook from scratch regularly?

*Not judging, I don't care who eats what as long as no one's going hungry! :)

My mom hated to cook. I taught myself how to. I am slowly learning how to cook from scratch.

What do you mean by from scratch?
Like making your own spaghetti sauce?

No, my mom sucks at cooking and fed us mostly junk. I try to cook well simply because I enjoy the process of cooking.

My mom cooked from scratch every day. I manage 4-5 times a week.

Yeah, like making everything with the various ingredients, instead of from a box/can/jar/whatever or a mix.

For the most part, my mom cooked from scratch. I do not.
