    Did Alix just do a Freudian slip?

    Now Alex really has to help with the cookies.

    It may have been a ‘Freudian slip’ but a very valid question. i don’t know that I would allow Holly access to the kitchen for baking purposes without an adult present—what is she, only 14 ?

    Hey, IndyMan: I took over my family’s cooking when I was 12. My son was cooking unsupervised by 10. He’s now a chef.

    Sometimes, one or two cookies don’t make it through quality control – the Big Guy won’t miss those…
    And IndyMan, my Mom got me started in the kitchen when I was 7 or 8. I did a lot of unsupervised baking by the time I was 12 or 13.

    IndyMan, it’s high time and then some that she got in the kitchen. Were you going to wait until she gets married?

    At least she’s cooking by choice, otherwise I think she would crabby from having to bake.

    Santa hears everything, Alix. Now stir (and decorate his extra nice)…

    My mother was cooking for the field hands at the age of 8. She had to stand on a box to get to the stove. At age 10 she got stuck with baking all of the pumpkin pies for the Salvation Army Thanksgiving dinner. She also learned early on how to cook on a wood stove.

    I was a short order cook in a restaurant at 15. Very tough job with everyone screaming at the top of their lungs when it was busy. They didn’t let me touch the steaks though. Those were too valuable. But funny thing is, my mother never allowed me to use the kitchen at home.

    We started learning to cook as soon as we could see over the counter. It was one of the great gifts that my mother gave us.
