As I read through many of the Baking Memories it brought back many memories of wonderful times spent with the great cooks in my family. I was fortunate to live near my grandparents or able to spend extended times with them and they were all great cooks. I still make the pumpkin cookies my Granny taught me to make. My Grandma Evelyn made an ANGEL FOOD Cake for all family gatherings that she baked in a large aluminum pan & used a tumbler for the hole in the center. It was always frosted with her homemade Caramel Frosting which was made with the TOP CREAM from the milk on their farm in Missouri & butter that she churned herself. Not only did I learn to cook I also was a part of making some of the ingredients for our goodies. I feel very blessed to have these memories to share. Gail Kramer Peterson

Nice memories. Hold on to them. I, too, lived near my grandparents when I was younger and I learned a lot from my grandmother. I helped her cook all the time and she helped me to learn. That's where I developed my love for cooking!!!

You are so lucky to have memories of your grandparents. I never knew my grandparents as they lived in Europe and were killed in WWII. Thank your blessings.

You are very fortunate to have been able to enjoy baking with your grandmas. Though we visited my grandparents quite often, I never had the opportunity to bake or cook with my grandmas. So you have a very special memory there. You also made my mouth water talking about those delicious recipes you made together! ;-)

You have some great memories of your grandparents. It brought back some wonderful memories of mine which I will always have and I tell my children and soon my grandchildren about.

If we all could have the chance to do the same things with OUR children there would far fewer problems in the world.

I didn't get to see my grandparents often and by the time I was nine, all but one grandma had passed away. I do have sweet memories of staying a few nights with her and wating her making that special cake with the boiled frosting.

You have some wonderful memories and had a good teacher for making great baking goods. So many recipes get lost through the years and you are lucky to have them to keep a tradition going.

My grandma, my Nanna Angel, always made and decorated angel food cakes for our first birthdays. The tradition has passed to the fourth generation now. Kay M. Minneapolis, MN

My grandmother is the one who taught me to cook and bake. We shared many happy times in her kitchen. She also taught me to crochet and quilt and we spent many hours doing that too. I taught my daughter and son to cook and bake just like Granny taught me, and I have passed on the recipes that she gave me to them. My son and daughter-in-law are not the best at keeping up with recipes, and have called me late at night wanting the recipe to either things passed down from Granny or my own recipes. I have also enjoyed many cooking experiences in the kitchen with my eldest grandson and my four granddaughters, and I look forward to spending time in the kitchen with the newest grandson, who just turned two. My daughter has passed our love of cooking and baking on to her daughter, who at 13 enjoyes making the meal for the family one night a week and helping on other nights. Her 15 year old son can also hold his own in the kitchen, and this year she will start baking Christmas cookies with her two year old son. This is the way we started her older two children on their adventures in the kitchen. Sometimes my sons three daughters have been over to learn to cook, this started several years ago, and they are now 14, 12 and 10. I would love to have all six grandchildren here for a day in the kitchen baking, but my kitchen is too small, so I have to work with them one family at a time, but we still have lots of fun.
