That all changed once I married. My mother-in-law took me under her wings and gave me an appreciation for baking that I never had before.
I observed as she watched one cooking show after another as if she were a student in a classroom. She took notes and used them to improve her own delicious creations.
Mama Shinsky allowed me to borrow recipes from her extensive collection so that I could experiment on my own, calling her occasionally with questions.
My baking has improved over the years. I enjoy trying new things and my husband loves testing them.
The art of teaching from one woman to another is not a new thing. In fact, it was the exact system they had in the church in Crete.
