Choose a time to suit your mother, so you won't be in her way.
Wear an apron to keep your dress or blue jeans clean and be sure to wash your hands.
Read your recipe and all directions very carefully. Look at the pictures. They tell you how to do each step.
Put all your ingredients on a tray. Then set each one off as you use it.
On another tray put all the tools and pans you'll need.
Have you left anything out? Read your recipe again and be sure.
Is everything spic and span? Then your mother will be glad to have you cook again.
