The Cafe The Cafe

Like Grandma Used To Make

I woke the kids to homemade waffles this morning. Not just any homemade waffles though, these are my Grandmas recipe. Passed down 5 generations, I will pass it along to my kids and hopefully so on. These golden, fluffy, waffles are like no other and, for me, fill the house with the smell of home and memories, to my kids, it's the smell of good food made by a Mother who loves them. I am always greeted with smiles and loving hugs when they wake to that smell and it warms my heart. The aroma lingers in the house til' lunch, keeping that warm feeling alive. I know, in time, these waffles will be nostalgic to my kids as well and as the waffles cook, filling the home with that O so familiar smell, they, too, will be flooded by feelings of love, home and family.

What about you? Do you have a family recipe that reminds you of your childhood?

My Grandma has a zucchini casserole that she makes that has cheese and bread crumbs, it is so amazing. Everything you mentioned made me hungry.

My grandma made hers like that too lol. Home cooking is so good. I hope I can pass recipes to my grandchildren too.

pin wheel cookies... I used to bake them with my grandma (and a lot of other goodies) as a kid.. those and carmel covered marshmellows remind me most of my childhood with my grandma.. and of course we have to have the radio on to the dirty dancing sound track, and dance around like crazy loons, singing with spatulas and batter covered spoons lol.
