My Dad's mom, Grandma C., was an immigrant from Italy. We would visit her traveling from Long Island, NY to Brooklyn. She always had a wonderful smile and there was always a pot of the BEST CHICKEN SOUP that I have ever tasted. I have tried to duplicate it, but have only come close. I guess her's was filled with so much love for her family that it would take me years to compare with it. God Bless you Grandma, thanks for the memories!

Grandma's soup sounds like it will be a lifelong goal.  But each time you make it, you will have the wonderful memories to go with it.

Loved your story. It reminds me of DH's chick soup story. His mom also immigrated from Italy and she made a special chicken soup. My sister in-law passed on the recipe to me and every time I make it DH says it smells just like his mom's.

I think the memories are renewed everytime we try to duplicate these recipes. Thanks to all for sharing with me.

i don't have any of my grandmothers dishes by the  time i was born she was sick with small strokes i remember my fathers turkey and stuffing but i just can't make it like him .my mothers bean soup is easy to make but can't get the fresh pot herbs. use dry herbs and use fresh parsley with rosemary. and a hot pepper tied together but its not the same . i asked in the fresh  produce but they look at you as you are nuts.

My Grandmother came from Canada by way of New York and she also made "THE BEST" soups.

My paternal grandmother made homemade noodles in her chicken soup, but only at Christmas time. A fond memory of her.
