To be honest. Yes. My mom still cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner for us. I know how to cook but I like it better when she prepares the food. I mean the food she prepared for us is so good that I don't want to go anywhere but eat at home. She is like a professional cooked but didn't notice it yet. She likes to watch those cooking shows then immediately follow them and she got it right but not all the time but most. I told her, why don't we open up an eatery or better yet a mini restaurant to start on and she just laugh. My mom is the best chef for me in the whole world. No one can top it. How about your mom?

At age 63, she still does. She has this belief that as you age, one should continue doing what she can or else, wither and die. Thank God for that because the aroma alone from her cooked dishes can make your mouth water. Drip, drip, drip, slurp!

My husband cooks. My mother lives in her house, and I live in my apartment. I moved in here when i was 20, and I've lived here for 8 years. I married my husband two years ago, and since he really enjoys doing the cooking, and is really good at it, he is the one who does the cooking in our apartment.

So you mean to say your mother doesn't cook anymore? That is good. We all may all want to get independent for it is our turn to live life as what our parents experience. You should do cooking too. It is good for you. ^^,

My mother was the most wonderful cook in the world when she still alive. She passed away last Jan.7 this year and we lost our good cook too. She really cook delicious foods for us and my only regrets is that i never had the chance to tell her how much thankful I am for all the nutritious foods she prepared for us everyday. While you still had a chance do it for your mother...because I cant do it to my mother anymore.

Hi lyzabelle Sorry about your mom. I'm sorry also if this discussion triggered it all. I'm sure she knows you are thankful for her. Mothers always knows. God is with her.

It is very delightful if my mom can cook for me. I miss my mom cooking. But after I get married I live separately with my mother in different town. It is took me 12 hours between my home and my mother's home. I only can go home once a year. I miss my mom cooking.

That is okay emine. That is part of life. At least you can still go back to your place with your mom. Chat with your mom that you miss her dishes. ^^

Happy to hear that your mom have an art in cooking, I admire to those who can cook deliciously as you are too, because I'm not the one. My father was a good cook than my mother. I'm not a good cook also even I start cooking at early age but I try my very best to serve my family. My mother is 81 now and she can't cook already.

I just skipped the details about cooking, I don't know how to cook everything but I know fry, make spaghetti and maybe pasta but when it comes to soups I'm out. My mom though knows all of it. She is like a supermom for me. Love her dishes! Wow 81, that is strong. Your mother must be very health conscious. It is normal that she can't cook considering her age. It is time for you to cook for your mom. ^^

Haha, I like my mom to cook for us still also. I am 49 and still like it better if she cooks it...lol I do some of the cooking but there are just certain things that are better when mom cooks it. And then there are the times when it's not so good for her too cook certain things....know what I mean? For some reason she always messes up steak....she doesn't heat the pan enough before putting it in sometimes and it boils instead of frying...yuk. I usually handle that now. She makes an excellent stuffed artichoke though.

My mom also does that. She overcooked our steak one time time and it all looked BLACK. Yeah I did some little nagging but I still love my mom no matter what. They are not all perfect but they are almost close to one especially in cooking.

My mum doesn't cook my meals; my dad does. He's not a wimp though. He's a professional chief where as my mum is just an amateur cook.

yes, because i still live with my parents. my mother can cook hearty meals too. i like her vegetables recipes. now i am hungry! so your mom is a professional cook (but did not notice it yet)? tell her to start your food business. if not, why not enroll her so she can hone and mold her talent.

My mum is 79 and lives just 5 minutes walk from me (thats my walking, not hers) & she usually comes up to us for Sunday lunch. If i've been working on the Saturday or I'm unwell she will make some sort of pie to save me cooking. I was working on Christmas Day so, I cooked lunch and she made sausage rolls, mince pies etc. She says it makes her feel useful and I appreciate what she does and why she does it.

Long live your Mom. She can still cook? That is impressing. You got to be proud of your mom. Being 70s and up is not an easy job even when cooking. Cheers to your mom Wizzy!

She has osteoarthritis and angina but she is determined to retain her independence. She cooks, cleans, tends her greenhouse, takes an elderly disabled neighbour (who is 93) shopping, drove 12 miles at night to pick my husband up from the station when I wasn't able to drive after I'd had surgery... not bad for a woman who's parents were told she'd never reach 18. Yep! She's a star as far as I'm concerned. I love her to bits!

No since she is passed away, i'm cook for myself, and for my other family, you are still lucky that you still have a mother, but i remember, my mom's is also a great chef why don't you learn cook from your mother nykel88? It will be fun, and maybe your cooked is as well as your mother

I am. She taught me cooking that was in high school. At first I don't like the idea because it was kinda exhausting and it felt hot facing the pan all day. But as she was instructing me I find it fun. I only cook a spaghetti, rice, fried meat, pasta and egg. Soups are my weakness.

My Mother is no longer alive. She was such a great cook that people were always asking her for recipes. Right now is a hard time to start anything. Very few things succeed right now. It would be nice if you could make a go of it. Glad you're proud of your Mom and she is such a great cook. You're lucky, fewer and fewer Mothers, from what I can see, cook. Take care.

well...yes she does. i live with my parents and will continue to do so. my mom cooks food for all of us and the day i get married, my wife will do the cooking and take care of the house. that is how it is in this part of the world. i do not know cooking at all and will probably learn some cooking as a hobby. but, otherwise the ladies at home pretty much are in charge of the kitchen. my mom is a great cook and i love eating her food.

I don't live in the same roof as my parents anymore so no one cooks for me but myself. Sometimes, I don't even cook. I just eat out with my fiance. But when I was still in my parents' house, my mom seldom cooked. My dad's the one who dominates the kitchen and does all the cooking. He's way better than my mom. i guess he got it from his dad, too, and now it's passed on to my younger brother who's a cook in a vegetarian restaurant.

I see. My dad doesn't know how to cook one bit. Your dad must be chef or he just like to experiment with food? Not all Mom's have this ability though :)

Same here. Even if we have helpers I still love my mothers cooking. She usually trains hour helpers to cook but I prefer her dishes than theirs. ^^,
