WOW I can't believe it...
I did it I made my first batch of summer borscht ever from herbs from my little garden and it actually tastes really good. You see the reason I am so surprised is because growing up I always felt I would never be as good of a cook/baker as my mom, my mom is known for her cooking skills. She can whip together a meal for 15 people in no time at all, (she has catered weddings for well over 200 people including my wedding), she always makes enough to feed an army and we always eat like it is truly our last supper, it is ALWAYS so darn good. This woman has got a gift and so whenever I make something remotely as good as her I have to pat myself on the back. Sad thing is I don't think my kids will remember me for my cooking or baking skills but they will remember me for my crazy dancing in the living room and maybe a belch or two(did Ireally say that??LOL)..ah yes the finer points of Louise!!! We've all got our gifts and abilities and I have been so blessed on numerous occasions by my mom and her desire to be the best at what she does, today I am thankful that my mom always took the time to cook fabulously for our family, you ROCK mom!!
What about you is there anything your mom did/does that was so amazing and you wished you could do??
