Image Cooking Is Easy!
By Patricia Roberson on May 8, 2010

There's no magic required to cook good food. It's really just a matter of reading and following instructions. My two sons learned to cook when they were in their very early teens for the same reason that I did. They were hungry! I was working very long hours teaching and sponsoring numerous activities in a small school, and they were tired of their dad's macaroni and ground beef casserole. As forty-somethings they still don't want any more 'mac and burger.'

I was well into adulthood before I "learned" to cook. Wish someone would have given me opportunity as a kid to cook!

Maridell, I guess I was lucky to get to experiment in the kitchen as a kid, but the whole family enjoyed what I cooked. Mother was very busy from the time I was ten, first with going to college and then with teaching fifth grade, so she let me cook whatever I wanted to. However, she was very strict about my cleaning up any messes I made. That's the part of cooking I dislike to this day.

The cake is one of our new favorites, Pina Colada Cake. http://cubits.org/recipefile/thread/view_post/67068/ It starts with a white cake mix, so it is quite easy. It does not rise as much as I had expected it to, but it sure is yummy!

Of course you have been had! I had two boys, and I was pleased when they married girls a lot like me. We all help in the kitchen, but if it is a car or truck problem, it's his. Rolling on the floor laughing

Merigold,
You were had!

I couldn't understand how my DH could build a house from the ground up, but couldn't seem to figure out how to stack a pot and its lid together and make a tower of the everyday pots. Same place, each time....

I was almost HAD, until I figured out it was his ploy to get OUT of washing the dishes....but, I have staying power! Thumbs up
