So I wonder if the past of Moms (now parents) teaching girls (now all kids) to cook may be somewhat mythical.

You folks are all making think I'm the exception, but my mother was a terrific cook, and she cooked from scratch for most things except for baking. She hated to bake, and had trouble even with a boxed cake mix.

She taught me to cook, and I love it. I also like to bake, and I even make more things from scratch than she did as I like to make my own jams in the summer. I have taught both DD and DS to cook, and they both love it, although DD really prefers baking. DS is even going to school to become a chef.

In our house, though, cooking is a family event and has been forever. The kids have fond memories of being in the kitchen when they were small, and nibbling on whatever I was cutting up until they started to help with the dinner prep.
