My mom couldn't (and can't) cook. She reheated. We ate nothing but processed food growing up. Even spaghetti was the Chef-Boiardi boxed junk that had the pasta in a box, sauce in one can and the processed cheese in another. Nobody could ruin a meal like momma.

However... I would pay anything to have my paternal grandmother back for one day to make her chicken and noodles. Not soup. Chicken and Noodles, the main dish. I have never tasted anything like she made, even though I go to every church chicken-n-noodle dinner I see. I wish I had been more observant. She never used a recipe, so it's probably not even written down anywhere. She's been gone for 20+ years.

Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

My grandma's meat blintzes. I do not really have a recipe. She would make these incredibly thin crapes that I am simply unable to do. Then she would make a meat stew, grind it, mix with some other things, I think like hardboiled egg and/or rice, just to make it more. Fold the spoon full of the mixture into the crape, almost like an envelope and fry it on both sides. She's been gone for a long time, but I can still taste them.

BTW, we had thread like this already.

You are what you eat.
