Chile Chef - didn't you recently start a thread asking about how to get grants &/or scholarships for college? Trust me on this one - both spelling & grammar are VERY IMPORTANT for even the most basic consideration. Instead of just typing whatever you think sounds like what you mean, it might help you to actually start looking these words up. I'm not saying this to be snarky at all, since I can usually figure out what you mean in your posts - I really mean this in a helpful way. If you spell on a college application the way you spell here, your chances of getting into the school of your dreams are doubtful.

Just as a translation here: "What you do is make your pie crust, then your omelet, throw the omelet into the pie crust, make a lattice out of phyllo dough, then bake another 10 minutes and voila tasty quiche."

Although I have to say that I'm confused about the omelet part. Are you saying that you actually cook an omelet & throw the cooked omelet into the pie crust? Or do you mean the more common prep of making an omelet/egg custard & pouring that raw into the pie crust & then baking it? Any other seasoning or additions like herbs or cheese, etc.?

Stuffed Veal Breast, Meatballs, Stuffed Cabbage, Chicken Soup. As hard as I try I can never make her dishes as well as she does. Guess I am still going back "home for the holidays." Good think it is only a mile from where I live now.

The problem is that we can't understand what you are trying to tell us.
Do you cook the eggs and THEN put them in a crust? I've never had a quiche with a top crust before.

Let's remember this thread is about foods our mother's made that we love..It is not for correcting spelling or grammar. We either use PM for something that bothers us or we ignore it. We all have feelings and I don't think anyone means to hurt another's feelings so please take a minute and consider before you post something that is better said in private. That said, let's get back on track and share our favorite foods mom use to make.

Listen chile, she said she wasn't being snarky, which means testy or irritable, she was trying to HELP you. I honestly had no idea what you were talking about. Perhaps English is not your first language. If not, we do and will cut you some slack. If it is, then you need to brush up on your skills of communication as we did not understand what you were trying to say. Everything she said was spot on.

There are a few recipes that Mom made that I later grabbed ahold of and brought them up to par but one thing she couldn't mess up was baked chicken. We had it every Tuesday as our grandma came over for dinner Tuesdays and she was diet restricted. When I think about chicken that is the flavor and texture I strive for.

P.S. Sometimes we get excited and type faster than other's brains can keep up, knowledge is assumed, and confusion results. Text is a lousy medium for emotional content. Everyone needs to keep that in mind.

chefkathleen heeheehee...kitchenelf tells me that "snarky" is a Canadianism. I'm pointing her at you next time she bugs me. LOL.

Chile Chef, Here is a link to the sites spell checker. It will help everyone understand you better if you use it.

Everyone, thanks for being so polite in letting Derek know that we want to understand him better. Can we all move back to the Mom cooking thing now? We've hijacked the bejeebers out of this thread.

OK, my Mom was an amazing cook, and still can be when she is with it enough. There are so many things she cooked that I requested, but honestly what I loved best was her roast beef. Mmmmmmm. She'd buy a standing rib and do it to perfection. I have since learned to make it myself and am proud to say Mom taught me well. The other stuff of hers that I loved was baking. There was nothing like coming home from school when it was 50 freezies outside and opening the door to smell fresh baking. HEAVEN!

My mom was a horrible cook when I was growing up. She made 4 recipes (which I will not post recipes, Google them or use your imagination) over and over, the rest of the time I was forced to fend for myself. She made what she called Chicken Caruso (think Italian red sauce with chicken over rice), Beef Stroganoff, Tuna Casserole, and Broccoli Casserole (which I hated).

She rarely made the Broccoli Casserole because I actually threw it up one night when her boyfriend was over ... that was the last time she forced me to eat it. Stroganoff and Caruso were once every other week as was the Tuna Cass. When I turned 15 or so, she started putting peas in the Tuna and I stopped eating that as well, at least until older and made it for myself Other than those 4 dishes, I either had bologna sandwiches, hamburgers, or hot dogs (sometimes Kraft Mac-n-Cheese). But I made all these while she was off partying, that was the reason she only made 4 dishes ... she was never there to cook them.
