A year after my mom started her business, I was helping a lot more in the kitchen then I thought I would be. I didn’t know it at the time, but my mom and dad had also been watching me while I cooked and thought I needed some of my own stuff in the kitchen. They were right. On Christmas day I was shocked to get gifts of cutting boards, tea towels and a full-on set of knives. I ended up putting all my new kitchen stuff into a kitchen drawer just for me. I remember my mom telling me that no one in our family thought it was a good idea, but my parents thought different. To this day, my drawer is still being used, my knives still sharp and my fingers are still attached!
