I am not good at cooking but I will do something to help my mother-in-law when she cooks for me.when I and my boyfriends go to their home to visit his mom,I do not cook for her,but she cooks for me.I have no suggestion to your friend,sorry,but if your friend does not cook,then I suggest her not cook,she can do something else .

she knows how to cook but not as good as the mom of her boyfriend. and his boyfriend is the one who told the mom that she knows a little something about cooking. sometimes boyfriends really need to keep their mouth shut lol. thanks for the response

Just don't dare. It's scary. It is either the mom would turn on or turn off because of the dish.

but what would you do if your boyfriend's mom is waiting to taste your cooking, will you just ignore it?

If that would be,maybe the best thing to do is learn some new dish that you are sure your boyfriend's mom would like..or just be true to yourself,tell her you're not a good cook and just try your best to make a good dish for her.

the trouble of this situation is, my friend's boyfriend told his mom that my friend knows how to cook. her boyfriend is partly to blame here, he should keep his mouth shut lol.

that can be scary...but if she has one dish that she knows how to make with eyes closed, then go for it! my bf's mom is excellent cook, so it does intimidate me...but i made some potstickers from scratch one time, and left it at my bf's freezer. then one day, his mom comes over and cooks the frozen potsticker i made...and feeds to his family (*O*;;) i was like "nooooo~" but i think it was fine...they liked it...lol...so tell your friend to cook only if she has one dish she is proud of :) xquisite http://www.xquisite.us

If she is not confident in her cooking then it is better not to try..If she tries & it comes out good then its good or it comes out bad then!!!

well everyone who will realise that a partners mom is a good cook will not feel any confidence once your partners mom wants to taste your cooking. thanks for the response

hi there. no, i think i wouldnt dare! :P lolz. its scary enough for me to imagine that i would be meeting my boyfriend's mom, much more cook for her, knowing that she's a good cook and all that. i would really be scared as to what she might say on my ccoking skills. well, i think i would just be brave enough to cook for her if i knew that i am a really really good cook. lolz. :)

my friend can cook but not as good (maybe) as the bf's mom. and the boyfriend is partly to blame coz he is the one who told his mom that her girl can cook. thanks for the response

Is there anything that she can cook well. If there is anything at all that she does cook well, she should make that. If not, perhaps she could get a friend who is a better cook to help her prepare dinner?

thats a good idea, she cooks lasagna quite good but sometimes cant get the the lasagna pasta cook perfectly. sometimes its saggy or over cooked. but i think your suggestion is realistic. thanks for the response

ooh - that's a great question! Personally, I'd be freaked out. cos so much could go wrong. and cooking and food are very territorial women things. Just imagine, if your friend cooks well, her bf's mum will feel threatened. If you friend cooks badly, her bf's mum will think she's not good enough to take care of her son. So it's a catch 22 situation. Personally I'd just bring the mum and bf out for a good meal. much less complicated that way, don't you think?

yes i think thats a good idea treat them out for a good meal. but do you think that will end there? do you think the bf's mom will not think of a way to taste what the gf's cooking is? this is really a caught up in a rapture kind of situation. thanks for the response
