Thanks Cat!

Bolas' Onion Goop:
Fill your slow cooker with sliced onions, a bit of butter and cook for 10 hours.
The base freezes well. The possibilities for using the onion goop are endless, but my first port of call is french onion soup.

My mom was an immigrant from Armenia. She came to the USA in her 20s after years of persecution and living in fear throughout the area around Armenia, Turkey, Syria and Lebanon. She married and raised a family here in Massachusetts. She cooked the simple foods she grew up with for her family.

My sister and I have learned to cook some of her dishes that we loved most. We have passed these recipes on to our children. They love them too.

When my mom died in 1982, there was no internet, no worldwide community, no global sharing of recipes etc. Her world was small.

For me to share her recipe for rice pilaf with all of you and see that some of you rank that as among your favorites, warms my heart and makes think about how my mom would have felt to see her cooking so widely appreciated.

That's so heartwarming Andy. I'm all choked up. Now I have to go look at that rice pilaf recipe.

Her world might have been small, but she has touched many corners of it through her cooking and your sharing of her recipes.Thanks Andy.

Although this original recipe didn't come from a DC member it's sure famous here resulting in multiple threads, and some of us needed to form a 12 step program for "Dragon Lady's Sesame Noodles" addiction. He're the first of many threads about them.
