and this is where it all started...
I was about two years old and my Mum was baking a batch of cookies. My Mum has always baked, and when I was younger she would pop me in the high chair so we could chat while she was in the kitchen.
On this particular occasion, I was talking nonstop while she prepared the cookie dough. Just as she was about to roll out the dough, I stopped mid sentence and said 'Mum, you've forgotten to add the baking powder.' Sure enough, it was the one ingredient that she had missed.
My Mum says that was the moment she decided to talk me through what she did when she was cooking, as opposed to letting my two year old self ramble incessantly.
