Happy Mother's Day, a day we especially love at Betty Crocker! To all the women who keep their families happy and full, we thank you for all you do. A special thank you to @kwinslow for sharing this immensely special memory of her mother with us—it brought our editors to tears. "My mother was my first teacher. Maybe your mother was your first teacher too. Some of my happiest memories, linking me still to her loving care since she's gone, are of her baking. A family story is told of me as a toddler climbing onto the kitchen counter, breaking into the Tupperware container of brown sugar (the soft lid giving way so silently to my prying fingers) and (guilty as charged) announcing "Don't come into the kitchen, I'm getting into your 'cabins'!" I now have mother's 1950 1st edition 2nd printing of The Betty Crocker Cookbook, given to her as a new bride in 1952. Here is a particularly favorite recipe for Snickerdoodles. I can remember rolling the spoonfuls of dough, Crisco and sandy cinnamon-sugar coating sticking to my palms. (She halved the recipe; I double it. ☺️) I have laid her old terrycloth picnic cloth on the patio table for the graduation party Saturday. Her spirit is near. I will look through the cookbook, stopping to read those pages stained by greasy fingers and floury hands, conjuring those afternoons at her side in the kitchen, my chin counter-height, learning the secrets of love given by spoonfuls of brown sugar and warm cookies."
