    Mamma’s favorite recipes...Ahhh! I remember the warm bustling kitchen with the always present delightful aromas that wafted through the house. We always waited in anticipation for the call that dinner was on the table!

    Mama's Dinner in a Dash
    My Mama's Meat Sauce
    Mama's Nachos Grande!!!

    Her recipes like her stories never came from a book they were all stored away in her head. She always just knew how to cook! I think from watching her Mother when she was young and the stories she told were ones that she had heard herself and were old family stories.

    Mama's Manicotti
    Jo Mama's World Famous Spaghetti
    Mama Mia Artichoke and Tomato Bruschetta

    Mama Cash's Brownies (Johnny Cash's Mama)
    Mama Foss's Mandarin Orange Cake
    Mama's Fruit Cobbler

    Do you remember your mothers or even you Grandmothers recipes and the wonderful meals that she seemed to turn out with hardy any effort at all, if you do please share those wonderful memories here with us all and maybe a recipe or two

    When I was about 15 we went to visit my grandparents (dad's parents), and I was determined to learn how to make gramma's burnt sugar cake. It was a 3-tier cake with a decadent caramel frosting that was almost as thick as one of the layers. yummy.gif And dad & I requested it for every birthday or holiday we could come up with. icon_lol.gif
    She set out to teaching me and I said, "Okay, where's the recipe?", because I wanted to write it down.
    She stopped what she was doing, looked at me all wide-eyed and then laughed. She said, "Oh honey! I don't have a recipe!"
    It went from bad to worse when she started "measuring" ingredients and I was literally scribbling down things like, "Two gramma handfuls of this", and "a three finger pinch of that".
    I tried several times to make that cake over the next 10 years, with no success.
    When I got married, gramma gave me three 9-inch round cake pans and a recipe card. I know what she must have went through to figure out the measurements of everything. I've had to do it for recipes I've created and made for years without a recipe or real measuring for that matter. (I guess the apple didn't fall far, did it? lol )

    Even with her recipe I seem to only get one thing right every time I try. It's the cake or the frosting, but never both are perfect at the same time. However, until I perfect Gramma's recipe, I have found a combination of two recipes that satisfies my craving for burnt sugar cake.
    Brown Sugar Pound Cake & Browned Butter Frosting come together to make a delicious treat when I'm craving that special cake, or just feeling nostalgic. icon_smile.gif

    When I was a teen my first husband's Norwegian grandparents (from Sweden) taught me to make lefse. Thin, potato pancakes that are traditionally eaten spread with butter, cut into quarters, and rolled up.
    The recipe is delicious, of course, but the most wonderful thing about it was their tradition of making it as a family. I enjoyed the 15 years that I got to make it with gramma & grampa. I just recently made this recipe with my cooking elective students for our week in Scandinavia, but I can't bear to replace the photo I have with gramma's handwritten recipe card, so I didn't take a new one.

    However, I did take this photo of Hope's recipe when I made it back during ZWT6. I see I was out of practice though, because I didn't roll them paper thin. icon_lol.gif
