My maternal grandmother was a horrible cook, so in my house, that would be an insult. :roll:

Reminds me of a funny story! My Mom was trying to get my son to give some details about his kindergarten teacher. She asked him "Is your teacher young or old?".

My son looked at her, furrowed his brow and bit and said "She's old. But she doesn't have as many crinkles as you."

haha 15 years later and we still tease her about her "crinkles".

Neither of my grandmas could cook worth a darn. My mom was a great cook (she''s gotten away from the more fun stuff she did when she was younger, but is still a great "comfort food" cook). But no matter what you think, when in doubt always take a comment as a compliment if there is any way possible to do it. You'll always feel happier that way, and when it is someone who is "damning with faint praise", you often will simply stymie them with their own inability to create trouble and hard feelings.
