The video she shared with it was a Mother's Day special, featuring Patricia collaborating with Jennifer for an adorable episode of Pretend Cooking Show.

She was as candid as she was hilarious. When Jennifer told her mom there was a cookbook she wanted to get her, she received a quick: "You don't have to get it for me, I rarely bake anymore," in reply.

Patricia doubled down right after, as Jennifer was telling her she tends to cut down on sugar when baking, and after she asked her mom if she did too, she replied again with: "I don't bake anymore Jen."
