My 18-year old granddaughter wanted to make chocolate chip cookies for her boyfriend's birthday.  I got home just as she as starting.  When I looked at the bowl, I asked if she was following the directions.  She said yes, that she had put everything in.  I usually don't follow instructions since I've been baking for over 50 years so I thought that maybe I had forgotten what the exact instructions were.  But it didn't look right.  Then she suddenly realized there was all this writing UNDER the ingredients!  She had put in all the ingredients without reading the instructions!  She was horrified that the first cookies she was making for her boyfriend weren't going to come out right.  I calmed her down and helped her finish them up by adding some water to moisten the dough.  They came out tasting good ... they just looked a little different!

It's always so good to have a Mom around.  Mine's been gone for 24 years; but whenever I bake, I can hear her with those early instructions that she gave me.  When mistakes are made, it's really for the good----because next time, a voice in your heart will tell you what to do.

They have to learn.  Also it helps if you follow directions.
