My Grandmother

grammieGrammie is a very strong willed woman.

When she cooks, my mouth waters just by the smells wafting through the house. I get so excited when I know I am going to her house for lunch or dinner. She is a master in her kitchen with many years experience. She is the one who taught me how to measure only by feel and taste. I don’t think I have ever seen her use actual measuring utensils. What she cooks and bakes is all from memory. I have asked her in the past for recipes of some of my favorite dishes she prepares, and she struggles with telling me the measurements. “It’s just this much and you add only a little bit of this or that!” I did manage to cook with her a few times where I could see and write down the ingredients for myself and incorporate them into recipes.

Here are my most favorites from Grammie.

Polish Sausage

Peach Chiffon Pie

Pork and Dumplings

Corn Chowder
