It has always been a tradition to bake with my granddaughters when they came over-at least twice a week for as long as I can remember. This year the oldest turned 15, hanging out with Gram is not tops on the list at this age. Her sister is 12-always busy now. I miss their helping hands, but both of these girls have developed a great love of cooking and creating new things in the kitchen. The youngest cooked a gourmet dinner for her mother on her birthday, she went all out. The oldest is always baking something. So the tradition will be carried on I'm sure. I'm a little sad and then again very proud of both of them, beautiful young ladies.

My grandmother passed away in 2001, I miss baking with her. Cherish each moment you get baking with your grandkids. I am 32 years old now and I would do anything if I could get those times back, but I will always remember our special times together baking our goodies.

Spending time baking with Moms and Grandmoms (or Dads) is always special.  It is amazing how many things are discussed over cake or cookie dough.  Plus you have the time together as the items cook.  Then it is time to enjoy the treats.

My Grandma gave me/taught me her recipe for potato salad - now at family renuions everyone comments on it saying they haven't had this since Grandma passed away, and they always ask for the recipe - the only thing is, Grandma NEVER wrote anything down - she cooked with a pinch of this, a dash of that, and add until you get the taste right!  And that's exactly how I make it!

When my 2 sisters and I get together, the conversation ALWAYS includes memories of spending time with Grandma in the kitchen and with the sewing machine! I don't have that kind of relationship with my Mom so I do cherish the memories of Grandma.Laughing
