I never helped with the mac n cheese or the fried Spam sandwiches, but when Mom pulled out the flour and chocolate chips, I was there. Okay, so it helped that she let me lick the beaters.
Fast forward a couple years, I received the best gift ever (to my way of thinking). A Betty Crocker Easy Bake Oven. Now, I don't remember a single other childhood toy I owned, but I remember my Easy Bake. Not only did I get to bake goodies (with a lightbulb!), but I got to eat them too. What could be better?
Things haven't changed much. I still don't like to cook, but the very thought of whipping up a homemade pie or three-layer cheesecake and I quiver with excitement. I'm pretty sure Mom created a monster.
Did you have a favorite childhood toy?
