What did your grandma used to cook that you are sorry you didn't get the recipe for?

Posted by   + Show Post

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

 Yeah, I wouldn't have wanted to either.  LOL my poor "pet" bunnies.  Thanks for the recipe!

Quoting Bmat:

Yes, she didn't like to, but every Saturday she butchered a chicken and every Sunday it was chicken for lunch.

Aw, Yes she could well have eaten the bunnies. :(

It really is easy to make your own noodles.

Here is the recipe I use:

 

 

Noodles

 

I double this recipe:

1 egg, 2 Tbl milk, 1/2 tsp salt (mix together)

1 cup flour, or enough to make a stiff dough that is no longer sticky.

Roll thin on well-floured board. (a recipe I have says let it rest 20 minutes first, which I don't bother with, but it could make rolling out easier.  It isn't necessary to roll them very thin, because the thicker, chewy,  texture is part of what I like about them.)

Cut with a knife as desired. (I cut about 1 inch by 2 inches)

Let dry about 2 hours.

drop into boiling chicken broth and cook until tender- around a half hour.

My grandmas Polish Sausage recipe. I had always wanted her to show me how to make her sausage.  I never made sausage from scratch.  When we were kids. She'd just she shew us out of kitchen.  I don't think any family has the recipe.   If it's around.  It's probably in Polish. Needing to be translated. But grandma never measured anything by cups and spoons.  It was a handful of this or that.

I know all of my grandma recipes, but I still can't make her dishes as tasty as she made them. :-(

She cooks a lot of things that I can still get the recipe for.

It is very sweet that you got the recipes.  I got my grandma's recipe books, but her recipes went to someone else and I don't even know to whom.

Quoting bmw29:

When my husband's grandmother passed away earlier this year the family decided to give me all of her recipes. There are a ton of kids, grandkids and even great grandkids they could have passed them down too but they all wanted me to have them. That was really special for me. :)

Quoting Bmat:

Alzheimers is such a tragedy. My aunt is suffering from it also.  What a shame about your grandma's recipe being lost.

Quoting bmw29: 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.

I don't remember my grandma measuring either. Too bad that you didn't get the Polish Sausage recipe.

My Gma is a phenomenal cook and she's still around. I get her recipes when she goes. 

My Mother, however, passed almost 14 years ago and had this 10-lb cheesecake recipe and a salisbury steak recipe that I want, but my sister is holding the recipes hostage, that bitch!

Would this be it?



Fudge (easy, cream drop)


1 12-16 oz. bag cream drop candy
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or regular)

Microwave cream drops for 2-3 mins until they soften and you can mix them well. Add the one cup peanut butter.

Pour into a buttered dish. If you want nuts in the fudge, use crunchy peanut butter.
