I think it's crucial to teach kids all about how to take care of themselves, from cooking to money management to laundry to making their own bed to cleaning a shower or mopping a floor, etc.  Isn't that a big part of our job as parents?  My wife also first took an interest in me when she watched me cook and tasted a meal I made for the two of us.  I like what I heard once that for us guys who don't quite have the looks or the muscles or the big bucks, cooking is our best chance of getting a woman to take an interest.  I'll never forget the time I took a door-to-door bus service to school one day dressed in my chef's jacket.  The woman driver loudly proclaimed that she longed to be married to a man who knew how to cook.  And she is far from the only woman who has said something like that to me over the years.

Cooking:  it's not just men who are wooed by cooking. One of the things which hooked my wife (while we were still dating) was a knockout meal! It impresses the snot of out a woman when the guy can cook!  My mom felt that it was her duty to ensure that her kids had enough skill to be independent. That included cooking (and laundry). Actually, I think she just wanted to ensure that we didn't return home on weekends.

This thanksgiving I will be making a homemade spice cake, found the recipe from a cookbook I recently purchased, one where all the recipes are made entirely from scratch the way people cooked in the 1800s

Yes, some folks don't know much about cooking...was in the same boat until I started embracing it as a hobby and traveling the world.  Trying to be more active and simplify my life.

Site seems to have been a bit moribund of late.  Went back to manly basics this year.  Got reacquainted with the BBQ, grilling the links and some corn all Summer long.  Also greatly impressed significant other with how to blend leftover hotlinks with mac and cheese for a killer quick stove top casserole.  Still amazed at how some relatives never considered adding celery and dice onion to lots of dishes.

but for now I'm going to focus on making those desserts I mentioned yesterday

next time I make spicy salsa, I'll try to limit the amount of chili peppers that go into it

Shirtless George:  Trust me, that is not true.  With the possable exception of something like a chili or soup, which you can make more of to try to bring the level of heat down, once the food is made too spicy, nothing can be done.  It's much easier to leave it out than to take it out or dilute it once it's in.  The same goes for salt.  One of the biggest mistakes beginner or novace cooks make is using too much or too little salt in their food or not knowing how to apply it properly to their food.

I just made homemade strawberry rhubarb pie. next dessert projects will be tiramisu from scratch, followed by lemon poppyseed scones and key lime pie.

I have homemade pulled pork sandwiches that were just as delicious as what you'd find in a restaurant.
