Laura Bush Prepares to Return to the Kitchen

First Lady Laura Bush can host opulent diplomat dinners, but can she still stir the pots? As the first lady and her husband, President George W. Bush, get ready to move out of the White House next month, they're looking forward to returning to the humdrum of everyday life. For her, this means getting back into the kitchen. "I haven't cooked in 14 years," she told Fox News Channel's On the Record. Perhaps the first lady could use a refresher course on how to peel shrimp or some simple tips on one of the most basic cooking skills: scrambling eggs. "He can't even remember what it was like, and neither can I," she admits. "This will be interesting."

What advice do you have for First Lady Laura Bush as she attempts to polish her rusty cooking skills?

HAHA yah i don't see why cooking would be any different than all the other puzzling things he deals with with a dumb look on his face ;) this is so funny. she sounds so priviledged and snotty, though i'm sure that she didn't mean for it to come out that way

btw, I totally have a cute mental image in my head now of Laura and George, in aprons, standing over a stove cracking eggs into a pan and looking at each other like this :?

Best advice - experiment. Try really simple recipes at first and gain back the confidence of being in the kitchen. 14 years huh? Life's going to be really different.

well my best advice is stick to think that you KNOW will be good before you get to the more complicated dishes. it's better to get your feet wet rather than to dive in head first.
