    right to the real thing. We didn't let them use it by themselves, not at first. But now my son and daughter both cook, bake, etc. Everyone in our house can cook.

    To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.

      I (his father) cook dinner every night, while he watches (only 17 months, not too much hands-on yet).   My mother always encouraged me to cook and experiment.  One of my favorite memories is of when, at the age of 8 or 9, I woke up early on a Sunday and decided to treat my still-sleeping parents to ginger snaps.  A lot of ginger snaps.  I made a huge, at least quadruple, batch.  The kitchen was covered with cooling ginger snaps.  I think they were a bit dismayed that I had used the oven so much without them, but were consoled by 1) my continuing good health and 2) warm ginger snaps for breakfast.
