So, the show starts off with each of these culinary dunces explaining why they're so awful in the kitchen. Really it all boils down to one thing: they were never taught. One young lady said:
I'm well-educated. I went to college for four years. I got my degree. But somehow I never learned how to cook.
I thought she summed up the problem very well. How many of us were prepared to write research papers, could type well, knew how to give a presentation, but had no idea how to plan a menu when we married?

As moms, it is our job to teach our children how to cook. Do your children know the names of the vegetables you consistently cook with? Do they know how to use spices and herbs? Do they know how to read a recipe?
It's our privilege to teach our children these things.
Schools prepare children for academics. That's not enough! As moms, we need to prepare our children for life.
