Volunteering to help cook in someone else's kitchen?

Ok, I admit it. I can't go to someone's house and let them cook me a dinner. I have to get my hands in the preparation of that food in some way, whether it's throwing things in the oven, chopping, plating food, whatever.

Sometimes I've found myself actually cooking the meal, instead of the hosts. Is it me, or is it them? I'm not sure. Maybe I'm pushy in the kitchen? For instance, every time I go to visit my parents, I volunteer to help my mom cook, then end up cooking the meal myself, while she plays the role of sous-chef. Now, because she's my mom, she gladly lets me do it and always says how much she loves cooking with me in the kitchen.

I swear, it's not because I'm a control freak, or that I don't think my friends and family don't cook as well as I do. It's because I simply love to get my hands in there and cook. A passion for cooking that I can't let go.

I'm sure I've annoyed people with it before, but I just can't stop. It's like an addiction. One that has no cure.

Do other people have this problem or is it just me???
