May your cold things be cold, your hot things be hot, and your cheddar be at room temperature.

I think that anyone who first learned the basics of cooking in their mother's kitchen, even if all they did was add the milk and butter to the Kraft Mac 'n Cheese, has a lifetime emotional connection, even after the parent has physically departed. I still think of Mom, when I make meatloaf, when I make chili....
.... Or especially when I make a chocolate cake. Licking the beaters and using the spatula to squeegee out the last drop of batter from the mixing bowl - and sometimes having to mock fight with her over the privilege. Boy that was a long time ago, but I can still see it like it was yesterday.
