This Woman Asked Her Mom For Recipe, Regretted It Immediately

This Twitter conversation is a little long, but it's hilarious!

LIKE!

That's really funny. I've run into that too. If you've learned by watching, measurements are never precise.

This is hilarious! The only time my mom ever used recipes or measured ingredients, except when she was on Weight Watchers, back in the old days when they had to measure EVERYTHING.

When my MIL was telling me how to make sauce for lasagna, she said, put in a palm-size amount of basil and a dime-size amount of oregano...

Loved it. For anyone who doesn't know, a Newfoundland accent has a strong Irish influence.

The part about the temperature as "not too hot" probably comes from the time of baking in a wood stove and determining the temperature by waving your hand around in the oven.

It sounds just like the conversation I heard between my Mom and my Nana in our kitchen when I was a kid. Mom was trying to write down Nana's recipes, and Nana wasn't cooperating.

That is how my mother taught me the temperature of her wood stove oven. I can still tell you how hot my oven is.

Puff is a distant cousin... only met him once or twice.

But he seems like a nice guy...
