I remember watching my grandmother cook and bake,  She spoke a mixture of English and Slovack.

My grandma never measured anything either, so I still go by a handful or a pinch and
things like that. My children had a hard time in Home Ec in school because they had
to measure things. I still like to cook and bake with my grandchildren.

My maternal grandmother passed away when i was a baby, so I really didn't know her.  However, my paternal grandmother lived with us for a while.  She grew up on a ranch in Stockton, California.  Since she was the oldest child in the family and the only girl, she really learned to cook.  Later when she married my grandfather they lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for many years.  There she learned how to make the most of canned foods as they received no fresh ingredients during the winter as the ships could not get in due to ice.  During the summer they not only received fresh ingredients, but they could grow a lot of their own food.  Naturally, they canned a lot. 
She was a great cook and baker, and taught my mother a lot, which she in turn passed on to me!!
