My mom isn't a fancy cook by any means ( though she is trying out loads of different recipes lately ) but everything she makes is pretty delicious. Of course there are a few things that aren't my favorite.

I've always loved :
-her usual sunday dinner - Roast beef, gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed turnip , yorkshire puddings and peas

-her grilled cheese that as simple as it is , mine never taste anything like hers.

-her chicken noodle soup with dumplings. Her broth is just amazing.

-spaghetti and meatballs. Her slow cooked sauce is just too yummy and comforting.

-macaroni lasagna. she rarely makes this anymore as it was a budget meal she would make us as kids . Delicious

-cinnamon toast. Again simple but yummy.

Sometimes it is the simple ones that are the best DBS.
I too remember my moms grilled cheese. That was before cheese came in prepackaged slices.

I forgot to add one more dish my mom was good at until I learned her recipe and techniques for making it & the dish was goulash!

While I don't think they still do, good old Pepperidge Farm used to make a line of canned New England classic soups, as well as canned Indian Pudding, Brown Bread, & Baked Beans. My mom used to buy them & I loved them all. I also loved the cans themselves, each of which featured a little intricate pen-&-ink+watercolor drawing of a New England scene.

My mom had to feed 4 kids on a policeman's salary and my favorite thing was her mashed turnips. When ever a holiday came around I always begged her to make them. Yum!

Wow. That was one of the only foods I loathed beyond all description. Just goes to show we are all unique. Did your Mom have a special way of doing them or just boiled and mashed?

Dang.

Got here too late.

Boston brown bread is the easiest thing in the world to make. You really should consider doing it homemade next time.
