I loved reading your memories. We each need to continue traditions that have been passed down from the prior generation. It's what makes the past come alive. My mother, grandmothers, my aunts and cousins have all played an important role in my love of cooking which I have passed on to my 17 year old son. I hope he continues to pass the traditions on down the line.

Cooking is a legacy that we each can share. I enjoyed your memories and, like you, plan to pass some on. Thanks for sharing!

I just read your story of your memories and have tears in my eyes as it brings back tender memories of my mother and grandma quoting similar words to me. All the conveniece items in the world can never replace the love and warmth that I felt as a child when mom and grandma taught me sewing, cooking, and life's lessons by handing down their mothers' teachings.

Thank you for your story Patricia, it brings back memories of learning to cook with my grandmother, mother, and mother-in-law. I have taught my two daughters and they are both wonderful cooks. I presently have one grandson (13 months), but I will teach him as well as my daughter and any future grandchildren the good Lord blesses us with.

thank you so much for sharing your story!It made me think back to my childhood to the days with my own grandmother an mother.I am a younger person and in my generation i am the strange one who loves to be in the kitchen and i cook everything from scratch i hate all the boxed things and chemicals they represent.I have raised my children with the love from my hands and home cooking,You may not have a whole lot in life,but when you have the love of a mother or grandmother who makes magic in the kitchen to make your life feel like you are rich you feel comfort and these memories last them there life and they to will pass them on to the next generation.I have a 20 yr old son who will be a father soon next month and his wifes birthday was sunday and she is on bedrest.soooo he cooked her chicken fetacinni and a home made birthday cake to celebrate!how many younge boys do this in this day and age!Thanks again so much and i hope american families continue to teach and mold our children with love from our kitchens!

Patricia, I to thank you. No, it didn't bring back memories, because I was never aloud in the kitchen when my Grandmother, Aunt, or Mom was cooking. When I married at 17, i had only cooked one meal and baked cakes and cookies, as a teenager, after learning in home ecc. at school. My boys weren't interested in cooking,:-) although they both are good cooks now. After I got married and left home, i still had sisters and brothers at home and thats when my Mom begain to let my sisters help cook. I do remember going home for B.D. and holidays and cooking with my Mom and two sisters. I did learn a lot from my in-laws. My husbands Mother, Aunt, & sister, we cooked together a lot. My Aunt-in-law taught me to bake biscuits,yum!! But I am now teaching my granddaughters and hope they will hand it down. The younger generation is so "CHEATED"!!! It seems as though very little is handed down from one generation to another. A lot of families don't even have sit down famil meals together, :-(!

This is a wonderful story and is the way we should all grow up. I remember my mother teaching me how to bake cookies and cakes. One of my favorite memories is making Christmas candy each year. It is sad that the younger generation is so often all about the quick way. My daughter loves great cookies and loves our cookies, but will not bake them from scratch herself. I keep trying to convince her that this the right way, the best way to make cookies. Maybe one day it will sink in.

What a wonderful story. This is why I try to alway include my grandchildren into my kitchen when i am baking or cooking. My daughter is an excellant cook. We always baked lots of goodies. She even can make home made noodles. The times have changed and this is a lost art. I am so glad that my daughter has taken after me and I am teaching my grandchildren to love cooking and baking.

Thank you for sharing such a touching and lovely reminder! My grandmothers were wonderful cooks & we looked forward to receiving our holiday goodies; peanut brittle, Hutzelbrot, carmels (none bettere), and Plum Pudding (my other favorite).The recipes have been handed down, my cousins living close got to learn from her hands. I have shared the joys of cooking with my daughters & they are going on to be excellent cooks as well, loving the process and the memories. My older daughter makes the best pies & crusts like I could never master as well. My younger one is on her way to being the cheesecake & one of the 2 dessert masters in our little family! My mother & on down have shared the holiday baking of our own favorites as well. Thanks again for sharing!

I have the same memories myself and have tried to impart them to my daughters. I also agree with Lisa T. from Midland. I remember over hearing from at times when my daughters friends were over how amazed they were that I cooked dinner every night and bake "things" like cookies, cakes etc. They only things they knew was going out to eat for every meal or popping something into the micro wave. I thought how sad that even then, they would have no memories of the smells, closeness and enjoyment being in the kitchen could be. But I have the memories of how happy they were, when they spent the night and had home cooked meals and things like home made cookies.

What a warm and wonderful story!It reminded me of when I was a little girl. My Grandmother, Mother and Aunt would be cooking in a kitchen with no running water. The men would be working in the field or chopping wood. My Aunt would have to go outside to the water pump and get a bucket of water. I would "help" carry it into the house. Granny would set me on a counter and give me a biscuit. She would poke a deep hole in it with her finger and fill it with cane syrup, Yum! And I learned how to make biscuits from scratch too! No recipe! Just fill a bowl with flour, make a pit in it with your fist, and add oil and buttermilk as needed as you kneed the dough to the amount you need. Pinch off a piece of dough, roll into ball and line them up in a pan then pat them down a little with a little oil smeared on top and bake in a hot oven. At Holidays and family suppers, I am always asked to "please!" make biscuits!
