My daughter, Candi is at least five years older than her brothers and so I guess sometimes I thought she was more grown up than she was. We always baked cookies together at Christmas time from the time she was big enough to hold a wooden spoon and she always seemed to be paying attention very closely to every step I did in a recipe so when she was about 12 and hers brothers Tj and Terry were 7 and 5, she wanted to bake and decorate cookies with her brothers and do it herself with no help from me. I was confident that she could do it since she always paid such close attention to what we did. So I turned my kitchen over to her. My husband and I were in the next room so I could keep tabs on what was happening.. she got the dough made and rolled it out and showed her brothers how to use the cookies cutters and things were going well, that is till it came time to ice and decorate them. she had watched me make the icing many many times but for some reason she missed that step and they used straight food coloring on the cookies!!! I got up to make myself a cup of tea and check on their progress and maybe steal one to go with my tea. I saw what they were doing and cracked up! what a mess they had made! I got them cleaned up and helped them make some icing with the little bit of food coloring they had left. they ate what we dubbed the flops anyway and had green and red tongues! The boys still tease her about the time she showed them how to bake Christmas cookies and we all laugh remembering their food color stained tongues and fingers! she has become a wonderful cook over the years and I am as proud of her as I can be but that is one cooking story she will never live down. Her brothers will make sure of that!
