Ramya, that is so sweet!  Don't you love the way the children respond to honest praise.

How great is it that your son enjoys helping in the kitchen.  That is good training for him when he grows up.

GRANA here;
 My  Grandmother/ NANA was a professional cook& baker. She had no patience to teach her own daughter, my Mother, to  cook or bake.
My  POOR  MOM  could not even make Jello or spagheti, so unsure was she of herelf,
My Nana, yeas later  loved to have me at her side in the kitchen &  taught me much of her knowledge & skills .I love to cook &bake &  became aHOME ECONOMICS  TEACHER, so full of of self confidence  was I.
Sharing time coking together results in so much more than a few cookies ; the  pride &  self confidence, gained lasts a LIFETIME!!!!!!as do the wonderful memories of  the time  spent togetherCoolSmile.

Ramya:  Thank you for sharing.  I did the same with my children.  They always helped me in the kitchen when they were little. Both know how to cook.  My youngest is an excellent cook and has taken over making the cookies and other desserts for our holiday meals.  He lives four hours away and comes here early on holidays to help me cook.  My other son lives about an hour away and he comes too to help.  they both do all the cleaning up and setting the table, etc.  It is good to start them young and it is such good memories for both of you.

Ann's comments reminded me of my grandmother.  When I was little, I went to my grandparents house to help them do various chores and I always spent a lot of tlme in the kitchen with my grandmother.  She taught me so many things.  We made home made macaroni, soups,  pasta sauce, etc. So wonderful spending time with her and learnling so very much.
