    My grandmother on my dad's side would make the most amazing poppy-seed rolls for Christmas and Easter. Yum! Unfortunately, she didn't use a recipe so all we have now are memories...

    My mom can't cook. LOL. Until I was 21, I didn't eat and thought I hated chicken because my mom cooked it so badly. :giggle

    My grandma used to make really good homemade spaghetti sauce that she learned to make from my grandpa's Italian mom. She also made really good beef burgundy.

    Hands down my favorite thing was always her wild blackberry pie (the little tart berries). We used to have it every Christmas. My grandpa would go and pick the berries from his secret location, which stinks because we never knew where he got them. Now we just daydream about it. I once considered buying some berries that were $36 (online) just so I could make a pie... but I didn't.

    My mom isn't the greatest cook in the world: she cooks because she has to, just like me. And I can't really remember my grandmothers cooking since they both passed away when I was little.

    One thing I didn't really like but I really do nowadays, is my mothers split pea soup. We have a tradition of eating it on this local holiday and I am quit looking forward to it this year.

    Also, at new years, my mom makes apple fritters. They are the best.

    A very old and local tradition is baking 'kniepertjes' and 'new years rolls' which is the same thing: thing round cookie waffles, but the first ones are flat, are eaten in December and represent the present year (as the old year has fully unfolded) and the second ones are rolled and represent the new year. Both my grandmas and my mom made/make them. The rolls you can fill with whipped cream (and the flat ones can be totally topped with it as well!).

    Ok and now i want apple fritters - uggh

    My grandmother's cooking taught me you can make pasta sauce that looks the same colour and the same in every way but it won't taste as rich or authentic, not for lack of trying - thats what i miss most

    and now i have to go make do with cereal - from a box...

    mmm. I'm hungry!! I miss Grandpa's spaghetti sauce. Grandma wasn't that good with the cooking. She worked full time and had 6 rowdy kids. I don't think the kitchen brought her joy. Grandpa was good, especially after he retired. He legitimately enjoyed making family dinners and it showed. Grandma was a star at mass production. If it was holiday cookies or banana bread, she made enough for everyone she knew :)

    My grandma made the best from scratch black forest cakes for our birthdays...I've tried to replicate it, but it's just not the same.
    My mama (mom's mom) made this awesome chinese noodle soup, that I make when I'm looking for some comfort food.
    And my mom, just makes the best food ever...I don't think there's anything that she makes that I don't like...I hope that I can cook like her when I grow up!!

    I grew up a military brat, so didn't really know my grandparents, and well, it is a big joke about my mom's cooking..it is pretty bad...lol,
    but now, my dad.............swoon
    He makes this breakfast hash...fried potatoes, sausage, bacon, and onions and anything left over, puts the best two fried eggs on top, and serves it to me with sourdough toast with real butter on it..and my arteries harden smelling it, but I love it!
    and woot to you on your first Pad Patter, you made me drool! ♥

    My mom is a good cook & made most of our family dinners. I don't have memories of a specific dish so much as I have good memories of us all around the table eating together.

    Her cooking has changed in recent years to accommodate my father's medical conditions so it's not the same as it was and I am very grateful for my memories. :love

    For me is panquequis (crepes), my abuelita(grandma) will always make them for breakfast for us grandkids. I have yet to try some as good as hers. :beat And her buñuelos on Christmas. So yummy!! And my mom would make this delicious pastel azteca, kind of like a casserole.

    My grandmothers never cooked for me. My mom makes the best fudge. Every Sunday she would also make roast beef, potatoes and a veggie.

    With the exception of the fudge I have pretty much mastered everything my mom makes :)

    Hot cross buns on Easter morning.

    Chocolate cream pie.

    Fresh bread rolls.

    Crispy chocolate chip cookies.

    My mom doesn't really like to cook (though she can manage), but she loves to bake. Every time I go back to her house, the baked goods are what I look forward to. The delicious smells just fill the house. Even my kids know that whenever they go to Grandma's house, they will get cookies. :lol: It's yet another reason to look forward to visiting her!

    Bless my mom's heart, she always kept us fed, but there is nothing that stands out. I'm also in the camp that was a super picky eater when I lived at home, but I've since found out that it was the way she cooked. For example, if the hamburger meat of any kind isn't turning black on the outside it's not done enough for her taste. :giggle And spices? I cleaned out her cupboard, and found a few that were legit 15 years old. I do love her broken glass torte! It's a jello and cream type thing which a graham cracker crust. And she has other talents.

    My paternal grandma lived on a farm, and used what she had, even if it meant picking the weavils out of the flour first. So, my dad would stop at Wendy's (fast food) on the way to her house because my mom wouldn't eat there. Grandma always had a creamie (Popsicle) for us though. My maternal grandma made beautiful cakes.
