Mother's cooking is always the best. Although not all mothers can cook but most mother's cooking is the best. My mother always uses the best, freshest and very nutritious ingredients in her cooking. She knows what I like to eat and my favourite dishes. When she cooks, she cooks with so much love and this make her dishes so special. I have never once refuse to eat her food unless I am unwell. My mother's cooking is simply irrestible. She serves her dishes with love and a sincere smile that I just can't forget. She is always so happy when she eats with me and watches me finished her dishes.My mother's cooking is the best no matter what she cooks. Is your mother's cooking the best? Why?

That's for sure. Mum's cooking can't be bought anywhere. Besides, it's cooked for her children with love. Actually, I like both my father and mother's cooking. They are delicious. However, during my childhood, I my appetite was not good. I did not like to have home cook dish, and prefer attractive but unhealthy food. My mum brought me to the chinese doctor, and was given a prescription which could help improving my appetite. My mum even play some little games to distract me so that I could finish the meal unaware of it. After attaining teen age, my appetite is as good as a gobblers. I could finish 3 to 4 bowls of rice easily. After grown up, I eat less but I like home cook food so much, especially those prepared by my parents.

Hi cheongyc. Glad that you agree that mom's cooking is certainly the best. You are so very lucky to enjoy even your father's cooking! It's ashamed that you did not get to indulge in such delicious food prepared by them during your childhood. Unlike you, I have no problems with my appetite since I was a child until now. I, being the youngest of the six siblings,was privileged in getting the best share of my mom's food and even the best part of the chicken which is the drumstick. During those times, we only get to eat a roasted chicken or duck drumstick during our birthdays. It was our special present then. The smell of the drumstick would drained all our saliva. While your mother had to seek help from chinese physician and played games to get you to eat your food. Luckily, your appetite have improved especially during your teens. But I think you are more weight conscious for consuming less food now as an adult. Some parents like yours, are so wonderful serving you the best food and I hope you will not disappoint them in any way now and in the future. Best regards to you and your parents.

It's good that you can have a good appetite since childhood. Actually my appetite was improved after using the prescription. I remembered that I need to swallow 8 to 10 capsules and tablets made with herbs every day. Luckily I did not have any problem consuming any form of medicine so far. My mum was glad that it really helped me to have a better appetite after some time. Besides, you are lucky to have the privilege to enjoy the best portion of the dish prepared by your mum. To be the youngest among siblings is good for your case. Thanks and have a nice day! I thank you on behave of my parents too!

Oh! It is good that you can swallow 8 to 10 capsules or tablets of medicine in just one glupe. It would be good to feed you with lots of supplements then to make you healthy since you were so compliant.I can imagine how happy your mom was when your appetite did improved because of the medicine you took. Yes, being the youngest in the family really benefitted me during my childhood. I remembered how high my chair was when our family gathered for steamboat party. They used 3 chair to raise me to that height to enable me to scoop my favourite food. I was so small and skinny although my appetite was good. Do you have any favourite dishes which your mom or your dad cook which are delicious and the best of the best?

Hi ketping! My mom is very old now and she doesn't cook. If there is one thing I love about mom's cooking is her labor of love preparing them, just like you. Her unselfish love waking up so early to prepare breakfast before we headed for school is one I'll always remember. A smile that came straight from her heart as she welcomed us back from school and served us lunch. These are things that make mom's cooking always the best!

Hi Tomitomi! Thanks for your response. You are just like me who appreciate and treasure the memory of our mom's cooking. She cares, loves and nuture us until we have grown into adulthood and her love for us was unconditional. In order to show my appreciation, I serve my mom as best as I could when she is sick or old. I cooked her dishes which I learnt from her and made sure it was the best of the best too. She smiled to me then tears rolled over her cheeks. They were tears of joy. Tomitomi,your mom is a very lucky mom to have a good son like you. She deserves the best of the best for all the wonderful food which is always the best. Regards to you and your mom.

Mother recipes are unforgettable and tastiest in everybody's life. Why Mothers food is the best in this world? I will reveal the secret!!! Every child has to taste the mother made food, because a child cannot go out and eat. As Children taste buds are very sensitive, the initial food tastes so good and reminds in the memory. As the child grows, the likeness for the HOTEL FOODS will increase, though the inner conscious knows that MOTHERS FOOD is the BEST.

Thanks so much, samson. I do appreciate your revealed secret. It is logical that as a child, we may have good memory of our mother's cooking especially when our taste buds are so senstive, the food being our initial food and so delicious too. Gee!You do have a point there. Yes, samson, no matter how good outside or hotels food are, our mother's food is still the best. Our mothers cook with all their love, care and concern and extra best and do we give them our best in return? Thanks again and have a good day!

My mom's cooking is pretty good, but I don't think I can label it "the best" :). My mom is not really a housewife kind of mom. She hates the idea of staying at home and doing work when she could be out in the real world working even harder for money. So, she usually is bad at housework-types of things, but when it comes to cooking, she usually is better. She's always trying to cook new things, which is good for me, as I always love to try new things. Her signature dish is fried tofu (dipped in an egg-flour mixture), with sizzling soy sauce. It's delicious!

Hi oXAquaXo, thanks for your response.Although, your mom's cooking may not be the best for you but she does her best as I can see. At this modern times, many mothers need to work to help to provide for the family. As such, they have no time or probably too exhausted to do house chores or cooking. Your mother is adventurous and always trying new recipes. This pleases you as well. And her signature tofu dish is one of my favourite food too. It's yummy and nutritious too. So your mother is quite a cook,oXAquaXo. My regards to you and your mom. Be thankful to your mother!

Mom's cooking is what we grow up with. Nothing else tastes better to us. If we eat the same dish somewhere else, we compare it to how mom made it for us. A mother's cooking is done with love from the heart. This is part of what makes it so special. I think my mother's cooking is the best. She takes pride in the dishes she makes on any occasion.

Tells her that her cooking is the best of the best in the world. Have a great day.

Thank you for welcoming me to mylot, Professor2010. I am happy that you do appreciate your late mom's cooking. Mother's love is so great especially when she transferred it all in her cooking and served it with sincerity. I am sure your mom will be proud for the credit you gave her although she is no more in this world. Eventhough, your mom's cooking remains the best to you, I hope you will also appreciate your wife's cooking just the same. She also cooks with love and making sure that her food taste so good too. Wish you and your wife including your family everlasting happiest always. Thanks to you too, kellysun for your participation. I am sure Professor will appreciate and give credit to his wife for being a excellent cook. It is just a matter of time. Have a wonderful day!

First of all welcome to mylot. Your discussion is really interesting. Everyone seems to be writing about their mom and dad's cooking but honestly speaking I like the food prepared by my mother-in-law because she makes sure that she uses my money to buy the best and the costliest ingredients and no doubt her cooking tastes the best but I do not mind because money can buy everything except the love and care with which she prepares the dishes.

Thanks so much for welcoming me, avani. I am glad that my discussion is really interesting as our mom's cooking is indeed the best. All food cook by mothers, may it be mother-in-law, god-mother or even some step-mother would taste special when it is cooked with some much love. My spiritual teachers wouldn't allow us cook unless we can prepare and cook with only good and positive thoughts. It is true that fresh, high quality and costly ingredients do affects the taste of our food. Most mothers would always choose the best for her family. There are many things money can buy but not mother's love. Good that you are generous to allow your mother-in-law to use your cash. Maybe, you would like to share some of your favourite dishes. Have a wonderful day.

Hi, Iys1280023 I am so glad that you appreciate your mom's cooking as much as I did. I am so sorry that you have to eat food from your school canteen. The food from schools are usually not of variety, and definately not as delicious, nutritious and contain a lot of MSG( monosodium glutamate) which is harmful to our health. This is one of the main concern of our mothers so they will cook to make sure that we don't eat food from outside. Yes, cooking with love does make a difference in our cooking. Our food will not turn out fine if we cook with anger, lousy feeling, hatred etc. There is a spiritual institution which I went which will only let anyone to help out in the kitchen unless that person reach a certain level of practice. The food they cook are filled with love and positive thoughts for yogis from worldwide who are serious in mental meditation practice. This really explained why mom's cooking is so delicious, unforgetable, unbeatable compared to any other foods. This is a proven theory. So love your mom and tells her how wonderful she is especially her food. Take good care and thanks for your response.

Mother's cooking is always the best. It is not just the best but the best of all best. I really don't have any rationale for this. There are different reasons for this. One reason would be, its because we never want to say bad about our mom's cooked dishes. Second reasons would be, we always want to praise our mom and if you praise them they will be happy and of course we want them to be happy. Third reason would be, because our mom knows best what we love because we have been staying in her womb, mostly of us for nine months. So I guess that's it. I can't really find a good reason for this. Lastly, because our Mom loves us so much and whatever she cook for us she will always do her best to serve a great fantastic delicious meal for us.
