My mother would never let me in the kitchen as a child because she said I got in her way. However, my Grandmother loved having me in her kitchen. She taught me how to bake cookies (which I am now teaching my daughter) and always had a rhubarb pie waiting for me. My grandmother lived in Michigan and I lived in Florida so my kitchen memories with her are few but they are precious.

Your memories of baking with your grandmother are strong and sharing them with your daughter is the best way to carry on a great tradition.

It's funny what you say about your Mom in the kitchen. I just heard recently ftom an acquaintance who redid your kitchen that she wouldn't let her daughters (9 and 11) help her or learn to cook in her new kitchen because she "didn't want them to make a mess in my new kitchen"! I couldn't believe what a ridiculous statement she made. I only have sons and I was never so happy as when they helped me bake. As far as I am concerned, the bigger the mess when we were done, the more fun we had!! You were have meories with your Grandma and are making memories with your daughter. Just as I did with my sons. They are grown and still love to cook so I know I did something right

Grandmas are wonderful! My boys were always welcome in the kitchen and still are to this day!

Your story about your grandmother is so sweet!!! I let my 3 grandchildren that are old enough make messes with me in the kitchen just like I did their parents when they were small and these are precious memories.

Thank goodness your Grandma let you help in the kitchen, otherwise you would not know what to do.
