Ask Amy: Partner is offended by tasteless gift
You NEVER tell a cook how to cook! Ever. Especially when they are doing it for free, as a favor.
If this son-in-law does not like his mother-in-law’s cooking, then he can cook his own or eat out of a can.
Dear Disgusted: Even though she was aware of her son-in-law’s extreme aversion to onions, this mother-in-law insisted on including them in everything.
He isn’t telling her how to cook.
She is telling him how to eat.
