I want to thank you all for taking the time to answer my question about dishwasher soap last week. I loved all the tips you gave. I can’t wait to try some of them to see if they solve the problems that I have been having.
Today, I thought I would ask a question about cooking, more specifically about learning to cook.
I grew up helping in the kitchen. My sisters and I spent many summers helping my mom can, freeze, and dry fruits and vegetables for us to eat during the rest of the year.
Growing up I peeled and sliced many peaches and pears, snapped more green beans than I can count, and pitted many cherries. I washed dishes, and occasionally made a batch or two of cookies, but it was not until I was about fourteen and my mom started working outside the home, that I really learned to cook.
My mom worked nights and my dad worked days. I was the oldest one at home at the time and my younger sisters and I were in charge of dinner.
Because of this I was forced to learn to cook during my teen years, but I did not enjoy it at all. Cooking was a chore for me. It was something that I had to do and I did not like it.
It was not until after I was married that I really started to love cooking. It became a hobby for me and I would spend many hours in the kitchen experimenting and trying new things. The more I cooked, the more I loved it.
My cooking has changed a lot over the years, but I still love to cook and I still love spending time in the kitchen.
That is the summary of my cooking story, now I want to hear your cooking story.
Did you learn to cook as a child or an adult? Were you like me and helped in the kitchen when you were growing up, but you did not really learn to cook until your teen or adult years?
I would also love to hear if you love or hate to cook? Do you think of it as a chore or something fun to do?
I look forward to reading what your cooking story is.
