Insult or praise?

So I was home yesterday with kids and for breakfast I made pancakes for them. After words my 8-year old told me that they were as good as the ones their grandma (my mother makes). Hm, should I consider it an insult or praise? They were really good. Have not made them that good in a while. The ingredients really play a huge roll in the taste (well, what’s new).

Anytime you are not sure, go with praise :) I am a glass is half full kind of guy.

Happy Chanukah Charlie! I wish you and your family all the best.

Grandmas are famous for making all manner of things delicious. "Tis only to your credit that your kid put you on the same level, man.

Yes, indeed, grandmas are the best cooks. I can still taste the things my grandma used to make, and she’s been gone for 20 years, wow, that’s a scary thought. Too bad. She was an amazing cook.

I loved my Grandma's cooking, my son loves my Mom's. =) It's just the way things work.

I'd definitely say it was a compliment!

Let's put it this way, if somebody told me that I cooked as good as either of my grandmothers ------ I would die a happy camper.

To most 8 year olds, "Grandparents" are near "God-Like" figures...and they have few "comparators" and definitely not a strong grip of the language, or how their innocent commentscould ever possibly conceived as "mean"...

"Grandparents", after all, are the only ones that can regularly (in their world) give parents "sass-back", and not be punished)...

I'd take this as a compliment of the highest level and try to jot down that recipe, as best I could recreate it!

Will be picking up the "waffle" thread on this board for our family, and hoping to get any sort of kudos, anything "near" like your daughter gave...
