I could sort of see this working when testing brand foods against generic store stuff, but jelly beans are distinctly flavored, so she was in with a good chance of getting them all right.
I’ve never lost my sense of taste. I remember being startled by people telling me that can’t taste foods when they have a cold. Sounds like your daughter is the same way.
Two separate issues here: (1) Is mom really a bad cook? (2) Can daughter taste the difference in jellybeans? OP - That was a really bad idea to try to link if you are a bad cook or not to if your daughter can tell the difference in jellybeans. Different jellybeans have intentionally distinctive tastes. And are you sure your daughter was not peeking? It’s way too late now to redo the test, of course. Your test put a lot on your daughter to pass the test one way or another. And by the way, children’s senses are generally more acute than an adult and that includes the senses of taste and smell. OP - Has anyone else in the family complained about your cooking? And is it everything or just a few specific foods your daughter does not like? The answers to these questions could be illuminating. If it’s only a few specific foods that are a problem then why not avoid them and do something else or offer a different choice? Not everyone likes the same things. Some battles are worth fighting, some are not. Please try finding a compromise.
