Your family will fall in love with these treasured recipes my talented grandma used to make!
I mentioned a while back that my sweet Grandma (my mom’s mother) passed away in January of this year. She was an incredible baker and cook and her wonderful culinary creations live on in her children and grandchildren’s kitchens now.
Every time I make one of her best-loved recipes, I remember her fondly. We’d visit at least once a month, growing up and she’d make a homemade treat for us to eat around the table with a big bowl of ice cream while we talked or played games.
It’s funny, because she was always so modest about her baking/cooking abilities. We would dote on how delicious her cookies were, and she would shake it off as no big deal.
When we gathered for a barbecue, she’d make a huge tupperware bowl full of her incredible potato salad. That was everyone’s favorite part. My uncle would try to sneak samples before the event started and she’d smack his hand or shout at him to stop and everyone at the table watching would just laugh. I miss those days, but I’m so grateful to have her special recipes in my arsenal so I can make them whenever I’m feeling nostalgic.
I’ve posted these on the blog over the past years and wanted to compile them in one cherished collection for you to enjoy too! I hope you find joy, as I do, in making and eating these scrumptious dishes and desserts!
I’d love to hear what you think when you make these! Do you have any favorite recipes that have been handed down over the generations?
