I love to cook but I didn't always. In my 20's it was a nothing more than a nasty chore. Having my children in the kitchen when they were little and I was still learning was an irritant most of the time. It took years to develop skill, and confidence in the kitchen. Now, my favorite part of the day is teaching my son to cook. He's a just graduated high school and will start college soon. He loves to cook and I consider that a parenting win.
