I grew up in a house where my dad did 90% of the cooking. Learning to cook was not a rite of passage for daughters in my house. My first year of marriage I could make scrambled eggs and macaroni and cheese (from a box). Now (fifteen years later) my husband brags about my cooking and friends call me for recipe ideas.

No real tragedies but my pie crust needs work.
