    Otis-try the choc gravy on pancakes...to die for! My dad's family did them.

    My stepbrother's grandmother made the best german choc cake from scratch...and I loved her fried ham. She was a wonderful cook.

    My mom's fried chicken and potato salad were very yummy.

    My fav food my grandma made was her spaghetti and homemade sauce.

    I have 2 funny memories of cooking disasters I did. The first one was my first attempt as a child to make cookies. I used salt instead of sugar. One of my parent's friends ate one and bless his heart he somehow finished it and said it was good...my 2nd memory was when I was PG w/my 1st son. I saw this recipe on a potato chip bag for a tuna casserole using the chips (sour cream and onion). I thought it sounded good (a PG thing I'm sure) and made it...let's just say my DH and DB didn't agree with my opinion of it and leave it at that...

    My mother did this too! No one else has ever heard of this. They say no grahams are too sweet for that, they need peanutbutter. Don't knock it until you try it. MMMM!

    Me and my Grandpa would get a real big watermelon, cut it in half, and then eat the whole thing on his porch...being VERY mindful not to get the seeds in his dichondra.

    My mother (many, many great meals) made huge pots of vegetable soup. She started after breakfast with the meat--she used beef plate boil--and added ingredients according to their cooking time. My father would walk home for lunch from the railroad yard. Mom would fish out the hunk of plate, now tender and seasoned by the soup ingredients. Dad would fork out pieces of beef from the fat, bones and gristle and wrap in a slice of buttered bread. A little salt and pepper made a sandwich like ambrosia--some horseradish made it heavenly ambrosia.

    Sound gross? Maybe but oh, so delicious.

    I made these for the kids at nature camp for after campfire snack. They were their very favorite and they requested an encore.

    My Mum used to make home made donuts as a special treat when we were kids. They were the "cake" kind, not the yeast raised kind. She would deep fry them in a pot on the stove and roll them in cinnamon and sugar. We would eat some while they were still warm. Yummy!! We also would make something called "Crackle" in the wintertime. It had maple syrup in it and Mum would cook it on the stove and then throw it on the snow outside. It would harden and "crackle" when you ate it. Delicious!! This is making me very nostalgic - I still miss my Mum...

    She never made cream cheese frosting. She always told me I wouldn't like cream cheese, apparently because she didn't like it. I love it so I never told my kids they wouldn't like something. Told them they had to try everything. What if I told you that you wouldn't like pizza? Guess she didn't like broccoli either.
