My Grandma passed away at the age of 94. She was a wonderful cook and I was lucky enough to inherit her recipes. Many date back to the 1940s and 50s. Grandma prepared them in a charming country kitchen with no running water and most of her produce came from her garden, not from the grocery store. These are made-from-scratch recipes. I wish I had spent more time with her in the kitchen and . . . I wish I had spent more time with her for so many other reasons.

Cooking with Grandma in the Kitchen

I learned so much cooking with my Grandma in her country kitchen.  I think my love of cooking is a product of spending time with her, watching her cook, and eating her delicious dishes.  I was fortunate enough to have her in my life well into adulthood.

I have cooked my way through all of her recipes now.  Many of them are wine, pickle, and bread/roll recipes that are very labor intensive.  It's so much easier to just go to the store and buy these things, but I believe it's good to know how to make these foods yourself.
