What dishes that your mother made that you haven't quite been able to reproduce as successfully?

My mom makes the best chicken and dumplings, but I can't seem to make it as well as she does.

  • Oscar The Grouch Soup! (AKA split pea soup) She would make it every winter & hers was the only I've ever liked. I just can't get it right. :) Thats what they're for, so they can make it for you. :) Love you mom!

  • Fried Chicken. I don't even try anymore...partly because I don't prepare many fried foods, but even when I did, I could never make fried chicken as delicious as my mom did. I don't know anyone/where that can. :-)

  • My mom would make pepperpot but I could never get it right. This dish is from South America Guyana. I always loved it but could never replicate it even when she gave me the receipt.
