I was one of the luckiest kids in the world. I not only grew up with both of my parents in the same house, but for my entire home life, my grandma lived at home with us, too. And I’m pretty sure my friends were jealous. Because my gramma? WAS AWESOME. Like, bananas dancing queen gramma. If there was a song about her it would go, “don’t you wish your gramma was AWESOME LIKE MINE!” NO exaggeration. I’m counting on my friends like Tara, etc, to leave comments confirming her awesomeness.
I make lots of jokes about how I don’t cook and blah blah blah. And like I’ve said many times, I don’t like to cook. Well, that’s not entirely true. I like to cook. I don’t like to shop, or clean up. It’s a pain! And I am lazy.
But you know what? I am actually really, really good at baking. Mike thought this was a lie, and then I made a cake for my coworker Dave’s (Rage) birthday. Everyone freaked out like, “oh, this cake is great, blah blah.” Then I entered a contest at work where I made a cake. It was angel food, shaped like a sand castle….and let’s just say that cake not only won the contest, but set the bar IMPOSSIBLY high for the rest of my life.
My Gramma was the MOST amazing cook. She and Mike never met, and it makes me sad, not only because they would have gotten along so amazingly, but because she would have received ENDLESS pleasure from feeding him. If you’re a cook, is there anything better than someone who will eat anything you make?
I’m good at baking because of my gram. Her desserts are legend. I’ve been pretty down and out lately, so I’ve made myself my gramma’s most famous dessert – her cereal cookie. I’ve decided to do something totally out of the norm for me, and share the recipe. I hope it makes all of you as happy as it makes me.
Gramma’s Cereal Cookies
1 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
4 cups Special K Cereal, crushed (measure before crushing)
-Cream shortening and sugars, add eggs and beat until creamy. Add dry ingredients and cereal, mix well. Form into small balls and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
-If dough seems too soft to handle, add more crushed cereal.
What do you think? Do you have a family recipe you want to share?
My grandma lived either two doors down, or with us, 75% of my childhood.
Grandmas? The. Bomb. Digity.
You are so fortunate to have had her, both of my grandmothers had died before I was born. My mother still had her mother’s recipe book so we got to eat some of her baking but not from her own hand.
I had awesome grandparents too. But I definately do NOT have the baking gene. I can, however, make a meatball that will knock your socks off. Thanks, Gram!
Lynn from For Love or Funny says:
My husband’s grandma passed down an awesome apple cake recipe. Whenever I make it, I think of how recipes are such a nice legacy.
hey mine too! does it have cream cheese frosting? maybe our grandmas were bffs!
My grandma lived down the street from us and made award winning pies. I somehow always made it to grandma’s house for pie baking day, and she’d let me make cookies with the leftover dough. Awesome.
Also, she gave me my own drawer full of books she picked up for me at garage sales. Best Grandma ever.
I’m not a baker at all but those sound so yummy! I bet my daughter would love them, so I’m for sure going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing! You are so lucky to have been so close to your Grandma. I wasn’t smart enough as a teenager to truly appreciate my grandparents until after they were gone. I wish I had a closer relationship with them and more memories. My husband is Turkish and his mom has taught me how to cook (but not bake.. .I’m sooo bad at baking!) One recipe she taught me is something that we eat almost daily in the winter. It’s very adjustable to your own preferences also.
Red Lentil Soup… Soak a handful (or 2) of red lentils in water for an hour or so. During this time melt butter (real butter is what I use) or olive oil in a pan, add some chopped up onions to brown. Next add some veggies.. I use different kinds of chopped up peppers (my favs are anaheim and green bell), 1-2 carrots, 1-2 potatoes… the more veggies the more thick the soup will be so use caution, my husband likes it thicker, I do not. Then add 1 cube of knorr (or whatever) beef bouillon and 1 cube chicken bouillon, you can add some crushed red pepper too if you like but only sparingly as this makes it HOT. I also like to chop up a clove or 2 of garlic and toss in and a tablespoon of tomatoe paste.Also during this process add enough hot water to cover the veggies. When you are done adding the veggies then put the drained/washed red lentils in the mix and add enough water to cover everything and make a “soupy” mixture. Cook all of this on med or so (let it be bubbly) until the veggies are soft. Then I use my little hand mixer to smoosh up all the veggies and turn it into soup! It’s SO yummy, and could totally be a vegetarian dish if you leave out the chick/beef boul. She’s taught me several other dishes but uses no measurements at all so its just kind of hit and miss until it comes out right but this one is my fav. (Sorry this was so long!)
Thanks for sharing this red lentil recipe–so do you blend the lentils in with the veggies too, so the soup is a puree? Or, do you leave it kind of chunky?
It’s totally your preference. I like to blend them so it’s a puree.
Amanda G. says:
Mmmm. Those cookies sound awesome! I’m the opposite of you – great at cooking, bad at baking. Especially cookies – baking cookies is hard! I think I’ll get back on the horse and try out your Gramma’s cookie recipe. Maybe I’ll have better luck with this recipe!
Oh I love your grandma without even knowing her and you’ve made me miss mine. Grandmas are the bestest.
I can give you a family recipe for the only meatloaf I’ve ever eaten. Meatloaf gets a bad rap, but I tell you, mine is the best! You’ll never go back, it’s more like a giant meatball than your typical loaf.
– 1 1/2 pounds ground meat (I usually use leanish beef, but have totally used turkey with good results)
– 1 slice of sandwich bread, white, whole grain whatever, shredded by hand and covered with enough milk to cover
– 1 egg
– 1/2 onion minced and a clove or two of garlic minced (sauteed in a spoonful of olive oil just to take the raw edge off – maybe five minutes over medium heat and cooled)
– about 1/4 cup grated hard cheese of choice – parmeggiano or pecorino
– black pepper to taste and a pinch or two of salt (a good pinch of crushed red pepper too, or cayenne)
-About four or five slices mild provolone, swiss, or shredded mozzarella
– two cups of prepared tomato sauce (a jar is fine, or make your own by sauteeing extra minced onion and garlic, and adding a jar of minced tomatoes w/ salt and pepper and cooking it down while your meatloaf does the first stint of cooking)
-and three or four slices genoa salami
-Heat oven to 375
– Mix the meat through the black pepper and salt
– Put a little over half the meat mixture into roasting pan and shape into a ten or 11 inch long oval with a slight well or depression in the middle
– put your salami and half the sliced cheese (or shredded mozz) into the middle well, making sure that nothing comes up to the edge
– Shape the rest of the meat mixture over your salami/cheese to cover the salami and cheese and shape – it will probably be around 11 inches long and kind of like a football with rounded edges; I make it in a smallish lasagna pan, you want something with edges to catch the juices
– Bake uncovered for about 30-40 minutes
– Remove from oven, cover the loaf with sauce and the last two slices of cheese or the remaining mozzarella, if you want to guild the lily add another sprinkling of parmeggiano or pecorino
– Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes to melt the cheeses and finish cooking.
Let rest for a few minutes, slice and enjoy!
If you switch out the cereal to corn flakes and add chocolate chips, that’s my aunt’s cookie recipe that is completely awesome! Now I want to go make some, yum.
I was just thinking, “Hmmm, I wonder if I could add choc chips to this….”
I think grandmas are the best…I miss mine so much. Last night I got some sad news and I seriously went to pick up the phone to call her…4 years later. I’d venture to say that 50% of the things I do know are based on WWGD…what would Grandma do? lol. I love that Annie and Maddie are so close to their grandparents, too!
these sound alot like my grandma’s Cornflake Cookies! my 3 year old has been asking questions about my Grandma Rose lately, as she is a budding chef herself. grandma was great at apple pies, homemade apple sauce, canned pears, swedish pancakes and cornflake cookies. i went to grandma’s for a night or two every month and LOVED the time we spent together.
Kate B says:
Thanks, Heather! My Charlie is allergic to milk, so I love finding recipes that call for shortening instead of butter.
My Granny was AWESOME! Her specialty was Chocolate Chip cookies using the Toll House recipe. Even though everyone has that recipe, hers were special. Not sure how she did it, but Granny cookies were always the best…I know it was all the love she put into making them. Tear!
Thanks again and I’ve got you and your family in my prayers.
Kate B says:
I had all of the ingredients on hand (FATE!) so I’ve just made a batch. Have only tasted the dough so far and I LOVE GRAMMA!!!!
Will let you know how the actual cookies taste.
Kate B says:
Charlie (3 1/2): Gooder than Peanut Butter cookies. I mean, BETTER than Peanut Butter cookies. Hey! Are you going to watch a Annie bideo???
Ryan (6): You’re the best cookie maker in the world! Someday, when you are old and don’t need it anymore, maybe you could give this recipe to Charlie or to me.
Kate (35): Weight Watchers Points don’t count when you are eating a recipe from someone’s Gramma, right? DELISH!!!
Thanks, again, Heather!
only in Louisiana ~ documenting the adventures of life! says:
That sounds awesome….gonna go try them!
i love how people love their grandmas so much. i think everyone feels that their gram is the best in the world…i know mine is! i’m lucky enough to still have her here with us.
my gram is by far the best cook in the world (just like everyone else’s). she has some amazing recipes, but good luck cracking them. she’ll give you the recipe, but since they’re all just in her head, something is always left out. to this day, no one in our family can replicate her dishes.
i hate cooking. not only do i hate it, but i’m really bad at it too. i really like to bake though…does anyone know what makes the difference????? it’s like when my hubby claims that cupcakes taste different than cake…both from the same batter hubs.
i’m EXTREMELY sensitive about my cooking/baking. when i was little we had a christmas party and i made ginger bread for it…nobody took any, and i cried and cried…i’ve been traumatized ever since.
I love to bake as well. I have a couple of great old recipes of my Nana’s. One is a spiced raisin cake, and the other is for peach upside down cake. Both are so super yummy. You totally know the old recipes from anything new by the use of shortening! Old school ingredients.
I hate to cook but Im told I am a good baker. I love making cookies to cheese cakes and yes cheese cakes get me in trouble with my health. lol
The only thing I cant bake worth a hoot is bread. I kill the yeast!!
1-cup of suar
1-cup of light corn syrup
1- cup of peanut butter ( Jiff is what I choose)
6-cups of rice krispies
6-0z of butterscotch chips (I use 12)
6 -oz choclate chips.( I use 12oz
Bring to boii the sugar and syrup in a 3 quart pan. remove from pan and add the peanut butter, then rice krispies. press in a 13x 9 pan. Melt the two kinds chips together in over at 250 and watch and stir until melted then pour over the the top and chill. I like having more topping on the top that is why I use 12 oz of chips instead of the 6 oz. They are so yummy!!
you probably already know this, but i thought i’d throw it out there…if you’re killing the yeast your water might be too hot. my mom always told me to use luke warm water to dissolve the yeast…barely warm to the touch.
i also think (but could definitely be wrong here) that yeast can go bad — i used a really old package a while ago to make pizza dough and it didn’t rise much at all.
I only had one grandma, and she was one of those mean grandmas who only was nice to me when I was dressed up and silent. BUT, I learned to bake through my own desire because I have a major sweet tooth. That aroma in the background, you ask? The brownies I just made, naturally.
I WISH I had a lovely Grandma. All I can do is try to be one for my daughter’s children. But my daughter’s only 6, so I’ve got a long time to practice.
I’ll try your grandma’s recipe over the weekend. Thank you!!
Debbie S.S. says:
I’m sorry you had a mean grandma Both of mine were cool, but my Mom’s Mom was the absolute BEST! She loved having all the grand-daughters over once a month for a “spend the night” party! She would take us to “town” on Saturday on the city bus, she let me shave my legs for the first time when I was 13, (with my Grandfather’s razor!), and was the best cook in the world! I am trying to be the best “LaLa” to my almost 4 year old grand-daughter….because I want her to remember me as fondly as I do my “Big Mama”! You keep practicing….and your grand children WILL have their own “lovely Grandma”!!! God Bless you!
Thank you for the reply, Debbie. It made me feel happy. Yes, that’s exactly the kind of Grandma I want to be: sleepovers, weekends away together, etc., etc.!! I’ll work on it every day until I can put it into practice.
Tracey P says:
I just love to bake – will definitely try your Gramma’s cookie receipt – sounds yummy!
My great aunt Alice was a wonderful woman and a fantastic cook. This recipe has been passed down through the family and whenever I make it for a potluck or other occasion, I’m always asked for the recipe. Enjoy!
Aunt Alice’s Spoon Bread
3 TBSP butter (I use less but it’s up to you!), 1 cup chopped onion (white, red or yellow), 1 cup creamed corn, 1 egg, 2 TBSP milk, 1 pkg corn muffin mix (I use Jiffy), 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup grated cheese.
Saute butter and onion until brown. Combine muffin mix, creamed corn, egg and milk to make a soft dough. Spread in a 9x9x2 greased pan. Top with onion, sour cream and cheese. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
I double this if making for more than 2-3 people.
So sweet! I love grandma stories. Alison and I love to bake. She doesn’t eat what she makes most of the time (not a cookie eater, CRAZY I know). But it’s good for me because I get more for myself! We’ll definitely have to try these cookies.
Lindsay from Boston says:
It’s not a recipe that I need to write down and share because it’s on the back of any bag of Tollhouse chocolate chips (Phoebe and Monica cookie fiasco on FRIENDS, anyone?), but I really do cherish the tradition of making chocolate chip walnut cookies with my Gram every Christmas season. We double the recipe and put them in a gigantic tin that the whole family is magnetically drawn to for all our holiday get-togethers. Then Gram makes some DELICIOUS egg nog to accompany it (maybe I can get the recipe for THAT, all I know is it involves a lot of rum and a lot of ice cream and that you better hand over your car keys before drinking some).
I get to go home to Florida to see my Gram this weekend, I am SO excited to see her. I grew up only two blocks from her my entire childhood, and since my Mom was a single parent who needed help, Gram’s place was my second home. Spent all my childhood summers though, swimming and biking and playing tennis and board games with Gram (yep, crazy active grandma … who survived polio when she was younger, no less, and still managed to keep up with me). She’s slowed down a bit and it’s more about the Scrabble tournaments now, but that’s not a problem at all! Love her so much. Grandmas are the BEST.
Lindsay from Boston says:
Typo alert … Spent all my childhood summers *there*, not “though.” Agh, I’m tired. Too many papers to grade.
I love my gramma. She’s so much fun, but she is a terrible cook! We all hate family dinners at gramma’s because for some reason she can NEVER get you a hot meal. It’s always cold. But we love her anyway.
By the way, i make really awesome chocolate snowball cookies- my friends beg for them at Christmas. And I also have the easiest but most delicious quiche. Yum… will share if anyone wants them.
Yes, Susie, we want them!! (I do, anyway!). We had one of each, a stern, no-fun grandma and one who was sooo hilarious and lovable – she used to make the UPS man come in and watch her soaps with her! Don’t know if either of them were good cooks since they lived really far away from us and we didn’t get to spend much time with them.
one of my favorite recipes that I bring over for new babies, sickness in the family, etc which everyone loves cuz it is very kid friendly and freezes well ……
Ham and Rice Casserole;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
6 to 8 cups of cooked rice
4 cups of cubes ham
4 cups of shredded cheddar]
small onion diced
1 can of cream of asparagus soup ( even if u don’t like asp, u will like it)
2 to 4 cups of milk (enough to make it moist but not soupy)
Mix all those together (plus plenty of pepper) and top with buttered ritz cracker crumbs, cook 350 degrees for 30 minutes
Great comfort food! Amts of ingredients are not important, can’t mess this up if you tried!
Hope Mike wins the Best Daddy Blog because he is!
So here they are: Everytime i make the quiche I get requests for the recipe. It is so easy and yummy! You can use any kind of filling that sounds good to you. My favorites are:
brocolli (frozen and thawed works well) and cheddar cheese, spinach(chopped – frozen and thawed) and provolone, or panchetta (brown and drain in the pan before adding) with mozzarella and carrots (chop into small pieces and boil for a few minutes to make them softer before adding).
– Buy a pre made pie crust in the dairy aisle. You can make your own pie crust, but that’s going to defeat the purpose of the “Quick and Easy Quiche”. Pre heat oven to 400.
-Use a deep dish pie dish, spray a little Pam in the bottom and the sides – not too much. Place pie crust in dish.
– In a separate bowl, mix 4 eggs with 2 cups of milk ( I use 2%, use whatever you have, but skim just doesn’t set as well) Just whip with a fork until well mixed together.
– Add a little salt and pepper, I also throw in a dash of garlic powder.
-Place 4 oz of cheese in the pie crust.
– Place the filling (veggie mixture) on top of the cheese
– Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top.
– Bake at 400 for about 10 -15 minutes until the egg mixture starts to set, lower temp to 325 and bake for additional 40-50 minutes until the egg mixture is cooked through and begins to get a little brown. Let cool for about 15 minutes and enjoy.
Chocolate snowball cookies:
1 pouch Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup finey chopped almonds
1 teaspoon almond extract
45 Hershey Kisses unwrapped
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Heat oven to 375
In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg, flour, cocoa, almonds and almond extract until a soft dough forms.
Shape dough into a small ball and wrap dough around a kiss, so kiss is completely surrounded by the cookie dough. Make 45 cookies and place about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes until dough is set.
Remove immediately from cookie sheet.
Let cool about 5-8 minutes and roll cookies in powdered sugar or just sprinkle with powder sugar. Store in a tightly covered container.
For a minty variation, use peppermint (candy cane white chocolate) Hershey kisses. add an additional tablespoon of flour, substitute 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract instead of almond extract andcrush 2 mini/small candy canes into a powder. Do not add cocoa or almonds and bake for 12 minutes.
Enjoy my friends!
Thanks alot, Susie! Can’t wait to try both recipes! My kids thank you in advance!
Wow, comment pressure!!!!
Yes, Gramma was amazing. I loved her and I loved hanging out with her every time I went to your house. And cereal cookies? Yummmmmy. You need to save me some to pay back for all the pumpkin bread I’ve made for you.
I am so impressed that you shared a recipe! Go Heath!
I just scrolled the comment list to make sure Tara commented. If not, I was ready to confirm your grandma’s awesomeness! But I don’t remember cereal cookies. Is she the originator of your mom’s monkey bread recipe?
YOU DON’T REMEMBER THEM? Tara and I are going to have to fix this. And yes, she is the monkey bread recipe maker!
i also scrolled down to read your comment, so the pressure was worth it!
My grandma made peanut butter fudge that would make anybody turn into a diabetic. she also made rum cake that the family giggling for hours!
Mama Kelly aka Jia says:
I still have memories of cookies my maternal grandmother made. My favorite was her homemade biscotti made with real anisette instead of anise extract.
Debby Pucci says:
These sound wonderful. I am going to give them a try and thank you for sharing them.
My grandma lived with us my entire life as well. It was particularly helpful when my brother was sick and my parents were 40 miles away in Seattle getting treatment. I never had a babysitter.n my grandma went on all our vacations. Sure, in some regards it created challenges in my parents marriage and sometimes it feltvlike having two moms but when we look back, my sibs and I, it was really awesome. My sister and I were just talking about some of the yummy old fashioned comfort foods we had for dinner every night because Nanny did a lot of the cooking. And when she died 2 years ago at 98 and I delivered her eulogy it was clear that each of us kids had a particular and special trait thatbwe can only attribute to Nanny. I lost my brother when I was nearly three. My parents struggled to make ends meet. There were lotsbof rough times. but I had the very best childhood. S many awesome memories. My favorite was when we woud spend the summers at this little beach house she and my grandpa bought whenthey were newly married in the early 1930’s…it is still in the family. Anyway, Nanny and I would walk the beach and look for mussel shells. Then we would come back to house, file them, sand them, shape them, polish them and she would use her special nail glue and put them on me so I could have pretty finger nails like she did. She taught me to love shoes and purses and she gifted me with a love of words and books and reading! Sniff sniff…you killed me Heather…now I really, really miss my Nanny!
I think these are the same cookies my mom made!
At Christmas time she would dye the cookie dough green and then form it into the shape of a wreath. Then she’d let us put a few of those little red cinnamon circles on it like holly. Just an idea for you to bring them into your Christmas baking : )
I remember those cookies! Were they the very thin ones? She used to bring those to the softball tournaments. I seriously have memories of her handing me little plastic bags with twist ties on them. I think that was another plus for me getting to come get ready for our games at your house! I got free grandma cookies!!! She was the sweetest lady!
Love this post! I too had a beloved Gram that I lived with. When she passed away we were heartbroken. My Grandpa wanted all of us to have some of her baking dishes as she was known as a baker extraordinaire! I waited and waited because if I took something from her kitchen then it was really final. One day my Grandpa said, “Honey you need to pick something or it will all be gone.” So I told him the only thing I really wanted was an old beat up green Tupperware mixing bowl that my Gram made EVERYTHING in. He laughed and told me it was also the only thing my sister asked for too! So now my sister and I have a “custody agreement” over said green bowl :). Whenever I’m feeling down I get that green bowl out and make one of her favourite recipes.
Sounds interesting but pictures would have been good with the post I usually don’t make things unless I see that they look appetizing…i’m weird that way lol! I’d love to see pics of your cakes to if you have any
I know…I realized that I should have put up a picture…but we ate them all! Hee. They look a bit like oatmeal cookies. I’ll just have to make them again and add pictures.
We deal with tons of food allergies (including oat specifically, weird I know) so I can’t make these but they sound lovely and the story of your grandmother’s cooking is sweet. My recipe is from my aunt on my dad’s side, I posted it here: http://ohmahdeehness.wordpress.com/2011/03/20/tomato-onion-salad-recipe/
Deceptively simple but if you love tomatoes I think it will be a hit.
As I write this comment, I am eating one!! And might I say…YUM-O! My husband thought it was oatmeal inside the cookies, and said the flavor was really good but for some weird reason he didn’t care much for the texture of the cereal but I LOVED THEM!!! My 2 1/2 year old is on his 2nd one…he could stand to gain some weight so he can have 5 for all I care. Thanks for posting!
Mark (Dudge OH) says:
I’ve been cooking now for well over 25 years and, ytes, nothing better than cooking something, no matter how simple or complex, and having the recipient enjoy the result, (especially when its a kid who is a picky eater).
My maternal grandmother, (“Nan”), was a great cook. I especially recall her Welsh Cakes, Dundee Cake, (she made a few every Christmas), and Rabbit Stews w/ Dumplings, (in the UK, that’s balls of suet dough). She lived in the next town along the coast from us, which is where Mum was born & brought up, so we saw her frequently – we’d visit every Saturday and she’d come visit us every Monday & Thursday.
Mum is a great cook, too, but she doesn’t have a specialty… a traditional British Sunday roast, maybe?!
I’m not too shabby when it comes to baking and soups, and I made a chili that won a cook off at work, but its sauces that I seem to have a knack for. The recipe (hopefully!) linked below was a spur of the moment idea, the sauce even more so, and it worked out awesomely!
I too grew up incredibly close to both of my grandparents. My grandma did not have the cooking gene. She hated to cook!! She did make a fabulous Chicken and Dumplings though! But every summer once my brother and I were old enough she put us in the car or on a plane with her and we went to visit her family in North Carolina. Now, my Great Aunt Ola Mae definitely has the cooking gene. We would have home cooked meals, every meal, the entire time we were there. She even got us to eat spinach (and like it!!). I must have gotten my cooking/baking gene from her because I absolutely love to cook and bake. My husband says I will be the mom down the street that all the kids want to come to our house for the home baked goodies!
My grandmother passed away October 2, 2008, and I was blessed to be able to make her final meal. She didn’t have very many lucid moments towards the end, but on putting a bowl of her favorite chicken and dumplings in front of her and some Carolina style pulled pork she looked at my mother (who also hates to cook) and asked her where she had gotten the food, because it tasted like Ola Mae’s. My mom looked at her and told her that I had made the food, and I will never forget what she said to my mom. She looked at her, and very seriously asked “Where did she learn how to do that? She certainly didn’t get it from you or me!”
I still miss her incredibly. I want to share my joys and sorrows with her, and not being able too still breaks my heart. So every winter I will pull out the crock pot and throw in what I need for her favorites. And one day I plan to share these recipes with my children and telling them that the woman who taught me how to make it them was the best woman I have ever known.
I get requests for my recipe for cheesecake for every family function. My problem is that I can tell you approximates, but I am not a measurer! Next time I make it I will write it down and share it with the world! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I am definitely going to give it a try!
Rose Plated says:
I am so glad that my Grandparents are still alive and kicking. LOL. My grandma is really good in baking cookies and some pies. She actually compiles her recipes so that when the time comes that we need to bake for an occasion and she is already gone we can always look at her recipe book.
My grandma use to cook and it seems that she never get tired cooking specially on occasions where all the family members are present. But to tell you honestly, I like the way she cook and been asking her about the ingredients but she often says that it’s not yet time. Sad but I guess it’s all worth the wait.
