I love to cook and I'm pretty darn good cook. My baking is coming along nicely... but, eh, I'm not in to sweet things and I can only ever get bread dough right if I do in the stupid machine. My husband does cook and he's not too bad. My Grandfather is an amazing chef. Wow. Richard, you rock the kitchen.
If your Mom loves to cook and play around in the kitchen, these are for her (or for anyone who loves to cook). If Julia Child inspires her... If she's often glued to the Food Network... if she loves browsing through those fancy kitchen catalogs... these are for her.
