Ahhh, there are so many to choose from. My mom was a horrible cook and she taught me everything she knew. I haven't eaten a bite of meatloaf in 36 years because of the "special" way my mom prepared it. Ditto for fish. But we always sat down at the table together so I could slip at least some of the offending meal to the dogs.

I lived close to gramma and saw her often. Once when I had a cold, she decided to whip up a home remedy for me. It involved Blackberry Brandy and probably bats wings and snails tails, or so I thought. She was warming it on the stove and it flared. She singed a small area of her hair in front. That area turned white for the rest of her life till it was all white.

Every time that I saw it, I thought of her making me that cold remedy. It worked, of course it did! Anything your Gramma makes has to work, too much love in it for it not to work.
