Welcome to Gramma's Kitchen. When I was a little girl, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my Grandma. She made the world's best cookies, pies, cakes ... you name it, she made it. All with love and kindness. She passed away when I was 32, without ever sharing her favorite recipes. Oh, it's not that she didn't try to share, but I never could follow her recipes. I loved her pie crust! So light and fluffy. Her secret? Lard. Real artery clogging lard. Her recipe consisted of "a couple handfuls of flour, a pinch or two of salt, etc. Our hands must have been different sizes, because I never could get the recipes to come out the same.
As generations change, so does the amount of time spent in the kitchen. When I was a little girl, my mother was a stay-at-home Mom. Always cooking up something good. When I started college, she started working. When I got married and had children, she was still working, so had little time to spend in the kitchen with her grandchildren. And I was working, so had little time to spend in the kitchen with my children ... although I did teach them to cook when they were in high school. Now I have grandchildren ... and little time to spend in the kitchen making all the goodies I remember from my childhood. One thing I can do though, and that's share with my grandchildren, and the world, the recipes we've come to love in our homes. My mother and I cooked the same way ... with measuring cups and spoons, so I've actually got some real measurements to go with my recipes.
