Ask Tara: Meddling Mother-in-law in the Kitchen

0 364

Dear Tara,

I am a newlywed who can honestly say – I love my mother-in–law. She’s smart, vivacious and fun to be around. My husband and I both love spending time with her and thoroughly enjoy her cooking. My problem is that I haven’t been able to cook much for my husband because she always takes over the kitchen. I am a very good cook but never get to do any cooking when she is around. What can I do to take back control of my kitchen in a way that won’t upset her or my husband. Jennifer- Detroit


Dear Meddled With,

Find out what your husband’s favorite dishes are and then set a date with your mother-in-law. With a pad a paper in hand, bring some flowers, chocolates or something she loves and ask her nicely if she would share some of her recipes and tips. Let her know how much you both love her meals and that you want to please him with his favorite dishes. If this works she may start teaching you while cooking with you. Eventually you should be able to take full control of your kitchen. If that doesn’t work, there is always plan B. Be sure to have all your cooking done before she visits! Hand her a glass of wine as she enters your home and smells the amazing aromas coming out of your kitchen.  Good luck! xoxo Tara
