Many of us have fond memories of visiting our grandmother’s house and of the delicious smells that greeted us when we entered the kitchen. Pies of apple, pecan, chess, sweet potato and oh, let’s not forget chocolate! Our grandmother’s almost always had our favorite desserts when we visited.
As adults those memories of our childhood visits to our grandparents are special. Not only were we surrounded by love and care, we often had wonderful meals too. As adults ourselves, we understand the love a grandparent has for their grandchildren.
As we celebrate Great American Pie month in February, it’s a great time to locate those treasured recipes and recreate our grandmother’s special desserts. Don’t have the recipe to your favorite foods from your grandmother? Now is the time to visit or give her a call and get the recipe. Best of all would be to go visit and make the special recipe with your grandmother. The memories you make will be priceless.
