My sister wishes that she had gotten my grandma's molasses cookie recipe. They were soft cookies. :(

 I guess it would have to be her crepe recipe.  I use Alton Brown's recipe but it isn't the same or maybe just my technique stinks, lol.

LOL!

I loved my grandma's noodles. I kind of make them like she did.  For some of her dishes, though, she used lard and I no longer even use shortening.

 She made homemade noodles from scratch?  I have never tried that.  Oh yeah, I rarely ever use shortening myself but I'm sure it makes a difference somehow.

My grandma made the world's best cinnamon rolls. She's still alive but she's 100 years old and she has Alzheimer's disease so the recipe is lost.

Chicken and dumplings. They were my dads favorite and I wish I could make them for him.

Both of my grandmas are still alive. But I would be sad if I didn't get my dads moms potatoe salad recipe and my moms moms fudge and peanut butter recipe.

It really isn't hard. She raised her own chickens and had fresh eggs, so maybe that made a difference.  She sifted a pile of flour with a little salt on her countertop and made a well and put in some eggs and milk and pulled it all together with her hands until it formed a dough, then rolled it out and cut it. I make mine in a bowl and use a wooden spoon, but there was something about hers that was so good, whether it was the fresh eggs or the thickness or the length of time she let them dry I'm not sure. :)
