My very best baking memories are when one of my grown children asks for the recipe for something I baked when they were at home. It pleases me that they remembered and that they are creating memories

I agree with you. It's so nice to be able to pass on recipes to continue traditions.

I agree! As a mom we do what we can to please our "picky" children when they are little. You never really know what they thought about somthing you made until they get older and say "remember when you used to make that apple dumpling thing...." Then you know you were and are truly loved as a mother!

My children have often asked for cooking and baking instructions.  They often give me new tips for making things too.

A young teen at my church was talking about my cookies.  I decided to give her a little recipe box with lots of blank cards and lots of cookie recipes.
That's something I'm doing for each young woman in church.

I inherited two children when I married.  I was w/them in Oklahoma at Christmas.  It was wonderful to see that some of the traditions I started w/them are still being carried on.  It was fun to share w/them that these traditions were started when they came to live w/me.

It seems like they ask me to make the dish rather than asking for the recipe.

I agree Louise!  Sometime my kids will call and ask how to make something while they're working on it because they're afraid of forgetting an ingredient.  And sometimes they just ask me to bring whatever the dish is.  As my son says, Barbara," nobody can make it like mom"  and maybe that's why your kids ask you to make it. 

What a thoughtful thing to do Nancy.  I'm sure the young ladies will remember you every time they bake those cookies for years to come.

My mother-in-law is getting older now, so can't make a lot of the dishes she used to, but can always come up with something new and different.  Not only do I 'copy' her recipies (and have raided the old family cookbook while visiting), but take home new ideas every time we visit.  Since many of her 'newer' recipies are caserroles, it's great for my busy family (2 teens still at home, plus a friend who is here much of the time.

It's fantastic to have memories of the kids growing up and actually being grown up now and still needing our help.
