Lessons in Life: Cooking

Dearest Baby Angel

This is your mother speaking.

Have I told you recently what a wonderful kid you are?How blessed I am to have you? How much joy you bring to your family and friends?

Good, because tonight I have to put on my other mother hat and give you some of that sage advice for which mothers/fathers are well known. You know the kind of thing:

Let sleeping dogs lie.

Never eat yellow snow.

Don't cross your eyes in case the wind changes.

and the ubiquitous

Always wear clean knickers in case you are hit by a bus.

Yes, tonight I am going to give you some advice regarding cooking (a rare gem indeed).

Are you ready?
You will thank me for this in later life.

When making a marbled chocolate cake for your friend's birthday, if the recipe calls for vegetable oil, avoid using this.

Unless you are after that herbal, hippie flavour.

Never mind, I am sure she will love it anyway.
