Recipes from Mum

My daughter just phoned me on the way back from collecting her little one from karate lessons. Little one had announced she would like pancakes when they got home. Daughter phoned me to remind her how to make them!

When we were first married I can remember phoning my Mother to ask her how to make brown stew. My Mother made the most wonderful stews in the world!! She baled me out with cooking advice many many times. How I miss her still and think of her when I'm cooking. She also made superlative curries. I've never been able to get close!

Very unselfish of my daughter as I'd have been strongly tempted to say " sorry but you've missed the boat!"

I used to call Mom and ask her (and I still do about her meatloaf that's always the best!) but lately she's been calling me!!

I never had a mother to call, but my youngest sister calls me all the time. My only daughter also calls quite often even though she is a very proficient cook. Guess I taught her well while she was at home. We swap recipes and even subscribe to some of the same food-oriented magazines. It is a lot of fun and I can see what I might have missed when I was younger.

I still call mom. She's always making something cooler than I am. But she's got retirement on her side.

Unfortunetly, Mom never really got the hang of cooking. Just wasn't her thing I guess, but we never went hungry Mom always put food on the table, Dad always made the more involved meals. I always get calls from Mom about cooking and many times I stop by her house to get her started. It's great living close to my parents and being able to help. I love when she calls for advice!

My mother liked to bake, but she was not a big fan of every day cooking. She was quite a perfectionist, though, so the things she did cook, she cooked extremely well. She was also good about saving things, and thanks to her, I have lots of heirloom recipes from family and friends.
As far as calling her...she called me every day, about 4:00, right after she'd had her afternoon Valium.

God bless her...sure wish I could talk to her now.
