most homes have their mothers as the chef cook. Count us out since we have a schedule of who’s the one in charge for cooking. It’s a weekly sched so that all of us will experience how to cook. it’s my mom’s strategy to teach everybody at home how to cook. when I get married I see to it that everyone too had to cook. My kid knows how to boil egg and noodles at the age of 6. im just there at the side to assist. How about in your home?

Without any doubt, my mother is in charge of the cooking at home and the rest in the family including me know a little bit of dishes to make which are like fast food stuffs. But recently on purchasing a micro wave owen, suddenly everyone's interest seems to have been grown in cooking off lately. So, why not try out some new dishes on a sunday breakfast or afternoon!!

In most house Mother is in-charge in cooking, also in my home. But all the member in my family knows how to cook well and not of a proud, we are all good cook because my father and mother teaches us when we're young. My father is a good cook than my mother. At the age of six i know how to cook rice because i am the eldest in the family. At the age of 9 i know how to cook adobo, my uncle teaches me that! He teaches me what are the ingredients for that menu, then he said you do this first, then this, and etchetera and so on, until i know the process on how to cook and step by step i've learn from them.

I do most of the cooking although if I am sick or if I get busy my husband will cook. When I am making cookies or candy he will measure everything out and will pour into my mixing bowl. He loves my electric mixer that I got as a Bridal Shower gift two years ago. When I have children I will be showing them how to cook. I feel it is important for both boys and girls to know how to cool so when they get married they will know how to. I feel for the boys it is important to share all household responisbilities.
