Don't tell, but my mom was an awful cook. Over-cooked meat, too much or too little salt, gluey sauces, etc., etc.
She loved to eat, but cooking was a chore for her. Now I make some of the same dishes she did for holidays and special occasions, but finesse it. My brothers don't remember what a bad cook she was; they tell me things like, "This is just like when we were little!"
So yeah, NO ONE cooks like mom.
