Mother's Day Giveaway Celebration - Day 2

It's Day 2 of the  Mother's Day Giveaway Celebration.  In you are just finding this fun even you can read the  details here.

So lets get to Day 2!!!   Today's giveaway is sponsored by Fort Worth Fabric Studio.  Thank you so much to Jodie for her wonderful sponsorship of today's fantastic giveaway!!!  Now you all picked a some great things that you loved from Jodie's shop.  Some of the favorites included . . .

Dottie Layer Cake


Clover Wonder Clips


Surf and Turf Fat Quarter Bundle


But in the end, the favorite item that won out and the Mother's Day Wish List giveaway for today is . . . 






I love this custom bundle!!!  I know everyone would so love to add these beauties to their stash :)  So what do you have to do for a chance to win this amazing bundle??  Easy.

Since this week is all about Mom's, your comments will be all about your mom ;) Whether she is still with us today or not, this week will be all about pondering over her and treasuring the memories you have together.

So for today's entry, leave me a comment of a favorite dinner that you made.  For mine . . . My mother grew up in England and so roast and potatoes was always a special Sunday dinner.  To this day, I have yet to taste a roast that is as good as my moms, especially with her special mushroom gravy poured over it.  My kids will probably remember that I tend to burn things, oh well, at least it is a memory :)

Please, one entry per person and international entries are welcome.  The Giveaway will be open until Mother's Day and I will draw all the winners from the entire week on the 12th.

Be sure to pop back in tomorrow for Day 3 of the Mother's Day Giveaway Celebration for another fantastic giveaway, and just in case you missed Day 1 , you can find it here ;)

Good Luck and Have a Happy Quilting Day!!

  1. Ok, but you will NOT even believe my food entry. When we were kids, my mom "made" us go and pick strawberries till we had gallons, at least 40, then we would come home, hull them all and freeze them. There were six kids so we needed a lot. However, for supper, we would eat only---strawberry shortcake, homemade shortcake, whipped cream, all we wanted. Nothing else but that. Every single one of the kids are married to people who think that is so weird and as grown ups we have never been able to pull that off. We did it with corn on the cob, too!!!

    1. Our Mothers could be related! There was a strawberry farm across the road from our house and we used to pick berries over there all the time and during strawberry season when we had strawberry shortcake -- it was our meal! So yummy. And when corn was in season we would have corn on the cop and sliced tomatoes lot of times. Our spouses think it is weird too!!

  2. Growing up in southwest Florida, we had a boat and would often go out fishing. The fish I loved was snook - it's a game fish and you can't buy it at the fish market. When we got home, my Mom would clean the fish and fry it up. Snook is best fried and freshly caught and cooked up, it's just heaven! Mom must have fried up a zillion pounds of it back in the day. Boy do I miss that...
    And btw - I had the low volume fat quarter bundle on my list. It's fabulous!

  3. I grew up in Denmark with meat and potatoes too, love my pork roast with crispy rind! usually make it for Christmas with potatoes and red cabbage.... I also like Frikadeller- danish meatballs, it's rare that I make them though. nowadays my fav dinner is homemade pizza, make my own dough too.

  4. My mother used to make us a Hoe Cake. Simply flour and water I believe. It was just delicious with a little jam spread on it. I haven't thought of it in years. Thanks for jogging the memory!

  5. My mom's specialty was her hot rolls. For every special occasion she would make hot rolls and they would be served fresh and hot from the oven. They were so good. She's been gone for 5 years now and I sure miss her. Koye

  6. My mother used to make pancakes, that look like animals. Elephants were my favourites :-)

  7. My mom used to make me a birthday cake that had a broiled frosting with nuts on top. It was like a caramel topping and was delicious.

  8. my favourite meal is stew...there is something warm and comforting about a big pot of stew!
    thanks for the give away.

  9. My mother is the queen of pies! She is so good she could open a pie shop. It was most common when I was growing up to come home to a groups of women gathered around the kitchen table, eating several kinds of pie with their coffee and cigerettes (back in the 60's!). She is in her 80's now but still surprises us with an occasional pie complete with homemade crust.

  10. My mom taught me how to make swiss steak and this has become my family's favorite.

  11. Every sunday my mother would do a roast beef with mashed potatoes and turnip purée served with a light gravy. Hum, so good!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm not sure I could pick just one favourite dinner. There were a few dishes we had regularly as children that are still my absolute favourites - bacon and cabbage, lamb shank soup dinner, steak and kidney stew. These are still real comfort foods for me, I love to make them and I love it even more when I go home and mum serves them up.

  13. My Mom's fried chicken was the best I ever tasted in my whole life! She's been gone for decades and I've yet to taste any fried chicken as good as hers!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My mother wasn't/isn't a cook, but occassionally she would make one of my grandmother's "old country" staples we nicknamed favorite dinner. It was simply kielbasa, potatoes, and cabbage all boiled together. It's comfort food for my family today.

  15. I love everything that my mom makes but I especially love her lasagna!

  16. My mum's tuna mornay!! Hands down best meal ever :)

  17. My Mom & I shared the same birthday. She would always make us a birthday cake, any flavor that I would want. We always had fun making the decorations for our party. One of our favorite meals was her meatloaf & mashed potatoes. My Mom Has been gone for 12 years, and I miss her every day.

  18. I hate to admit this, but my one of my all-time favorites is Kraft Mac & Cheese with tuna ~ it's my go-to dinner when my hubby is gone for the day. :) Thanks for the chance ~ fingers crossed!

  21. Pork chops in the oven with mushroom soup gravy. My mom taught me how to make it and it's been a favourite for years. The gravy is so good on top of baked potatoes. The day of your draw would have been my mom's 95th birthday. She missed it by two months. At last year's birthday/Mother's Day celebration she couldn't believe she was 94. She never expected to live so long.

  22. My mom's Dutch, thick, robust pea soup.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My Mum made great cakes, decorated with 3 dimensional scenes for special occasions. I always loved the Easter and Christmas ones and loved that I could eat all the decorations myself!

  24. My mom made the best turkey and dressing. She put loves of bread out to get stale days before the big day. She had a big wash pan she would make the dressing in. It was fun helping and knowing it would taste so good. We always had a 20-23 lb turke.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My favorite dinner memory is, we had dinner and a movie night one night. She made spaghetti and meatballs and watched Lady and the Tramp. Nothing fancy, just the night made them taste amazing.

  26. I have no low volume prints so love the chance to win some! My mom makes killer minestrone with beef shanks that we often have for dinner on Christmas Eve. She's the kind of mom who offers anybody and everybody food--you can't even get up the driveway before she's heading to make you something!

  27. my mom was a great cook so all her meals were great...except for her liver and onions. It is her delicious pies and homemade ice cream that remain the fondest in my memories. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  28. I love my mother's potato salad. :)

  29. My favorite thing to eat is pizza, so pizza on the grill is my favorite thing that I have made. Twice baked potatoes are a close second because my children LOVE them and they always get rave reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My mom was the typical Texas cook - always meat and potatoes, but in the summer, she would cook a ham (mainly for left-overs!), then fried okra and stewed black-eyed peas and have fresh cut tomatoes and cantaloupes from the garden. Oh, yeah, followed by peach cobbler. The minute the weather feels warm, I start to long for this meal, but I have never been able to make it taste the same......

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think my favorite memory of dinner with my family was when we all went out to the mudflats and got our own clams. My dad and I would shuck the clams, then I bought them in and my mom let me use the grinder to mince the clams, as a kid, using a grinder was fun, lol. My mom made up a big pot of chowder and clam fritters, my favorite meal. Both my parents are gone so it brings up memories of the years we had together, this time of year.

  33. I helped make thanksgiving dinner one year, homemade stuffing and cherry cheesecake they were both delicious!

  34. For birthdays and Christmas she would make a cake with hot fudge sauce. Yum! All of her dinners were real good, so it's hard to pick a favorite. Thanks for the giveaway. vickise at gmail dot com

  35. I love home made chicken pot pie. I use an old Williams Sonoma recipe. It is a lot of work but very delicious, in my opinion.

  36. A favorite family dinner was when we would all make homemade pizza, even the pizza dough!

  37. Being British our favourite dinners were roast dinners. Can't beat roast potatoes when done properly :) I do remember my mum trying to make Yorkshire puddings (she is a southerner) and they were a complete disaster, very rubbery we all had a good laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My mom was a wonderful cook, and every year on our birthday, we got to pick the meal. My favorite was Swedish meatballs, handmade meatballs in a mushroom gravy, served over egg noodles. I've never been able to get the gravy as good as moms

    ReplyDelete
  39. my mom always made me my favorite pie; apricot and egg custard. YUM! i don't even try to make it. i taught her to make chicken and dumplings and her's was always better than mine.

    ReplyDelete
  40. HAHA! Your going to laugh at this story. In fact i just fussed at one of my moms current friends. I told her, 'thanks for being such a great friend to my mom... BUT... if you ever make chili with her... its OVER!" This goes back to when I was a kid. LOL. I loved making chili with her. But one year i went away to a camp for a week. I came back to find out she made chili with a friend of mine down the street! GASP! I was so hurt! (though not much as this friend didnt have a good mother figure). So now its a big joke in our family :D

  41. My Mom is a chef so yes cooking was her thing, lots and lots of memories of her dishes, but on was a square chocolate pie, we had run out of pie plates for TG and she used a sq pan, now its a tradition..

  43. My little old italian mother makes 2 great dishes
    one is lemon chicken , better than any chinese restaurant
    second a northern italian ravioli soup, little spinach and veal ravioli in chicken broth topped with parm
    I am a vegetarian now but, I might have a little slip for either of those

  45. every Sunday, my mother made a roast beef with potatoes, carrots and onions in the roasting pan. thanks for the chance to win.

  46. I loved my mother's New england boiled dinner. I also loved her meatloaf which my family doesn't like any meatloaf so it is always a treat to have a piece at Mom's. Eggs on toast is a favorite memory of breakfasts. One that my kids love today.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love anything with gravy...my mom makes the best GRAVY ever...she can make if from anything, chicken, turkey, pot roast... you name it! And it's yummy poured all over mash potatoes or rice:) Wish my kids liked gravy....

    ReplyDelete
  48. Several of my Mom's meals became family favorites! When my children - all adults now - gather, we make her macaroni and cheese. Another favorite is a one pot casserole called Pork Chops and Corn, which features a corn pudding. Ummm....

    ReplyDelete
  49. Everybody wanted my mom's angel food cake. She made lots of good meals, but she was a terrific baker. When the chickens laid too many eggs, we had angel food cake, usually two of them, one was chocolate. Have you ever had an angel food cake made from scratch? You wouldn't believe the difference.

  52. My favorite meal my mom made was roast with gravy and potatoes:)

  53. When I was a kid, my Dad did all the cooking. My mother grew up on dairy farms during the Depression; they also raised sheep. Since the lambs were sold, what Mom's family ate was mutton. So, when we'd have lamb, Dad would have to doctor it up to make it palatable for her. Now, lamb is a lot more expensive so I don't buy the leg or rack, I buy chops. And I doctor them up good. Happy Mother's Day Mom!

  54. My Mom, age 83, makes the BEST fried okra on earth! Always with fresh okra, never store bought. I have a very hard time copying it. Even people who have never eaten it are won over when they try it. My own specialty is Lasagna. I get asked for the recipe all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My mom's favorite thing to make for dinner was a quick run to her mother's house! As an only child, my grandparents did everything for her (lucky us because they were wonderful people). Now I make a lot of grandma's dishes for my mom! :)

  56. Birthday dinners. You got to pick what we had with a very special cake. Never got many choices as the budget was tight but your birthday was super special

  57. My mom used to make crab legs - we'd sit together for an hour cracking them and dipping in butter - yummmm.

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a fabulous bundle! My mom is a great cook and I grew up hating to eat spaghetti anywhere other than home because it was never anywhere near as good as Mom's.

    ReplyDelete
  59. "Favorite" is relative! Of course, everyone's favorites are the big holiday dinners. My personal favorites to cook are soups and stews. When i was working, the kids used to beg for me to fix something that they didn't have to eat with a spoon. Working mom!!

  63. My Mom is still alive at 83. She is still very onery and full of hell. She had always made a breakfast pizza that was so good. I have made it for myself and my boyfriend but it just doesn't taste like Moms. The receipe is so easy. You just 8 little sausages. Saute with half of chopped onions and a sprinkle of parsley. Scramble 6 eggs and a little bit of milk. Add to your sausage mixture. Pour into a large fry pan and bake in your oven 15 minutes at 400 degrees. I also add some shredded cheese to mine. Tastes so good. It just isn't Moms. Thank you for the fun and generous Mother's Day's giveaways and the chance to win. Happy Mother's Day to you. You really deserve it.

  65. When we were growing up, my mother always let us choose what was for dinner on our birthday. I'm the 4th of 8, so that was a lot of special meals during the year! I always chose her recipe of beef stroganoff which was an all day cooking event and so very delicious. It's still one of my favorites!

    Fabulous giveaway! Thanks for the chance, and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

  66. my mother grew up in Scotland....Scotch broth was our little treat....like hamburg soup

  67. My mom was always working when I was growing up, so we relied heavily on grandma's garden for fresh veggies. In the fall, my mom would pick all the squashes grandma had raised and made a dinner of just squash - zucchini and spaghetti and acorn and butternut, etc. We'd set up a picnic table in the backyard and had a squash feast under the giant cottonwood trees.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My favorite dinner Mom made was "Fried Chicken". Yup greasy yet crispy fried chicken...Mom lived to be 92 and everything was fried...that is how she cooked! Nothing in the world was as good as her fried chicken!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Its too hard to pick just one meal, but I really loved her split pea soup with smoked pork in it. I remember one time when she wrote out her recipe so I could get it started because she was not going to be home in time to start the soup. I was about 8 years old.I was so proud that I could cook like her!

    ReplyDelete
  70. for me it would have to be the Chinese noodles that were served up every year on Christmas eve. there is a long story as to why - but suffice it to say that I have served the same Christmas eve dinner to my family, and my daughter who lives 4000 miles away serves them to her family now too - a tradition that spans over 70 years now

  71. My mom was a wonderful cook, making three big meals a day. Four of her children (5 altogether) came home from school for lunch everyday. She is famous for her apple pie. Mine isn't bad, but hers was awesome. Sure miss her and wish we could spend Mother's Day together.

  72. My mom is from El Salvador, so my favorite dish that she makes is called Chila Quilas.

  74. My mom is a great cook so it's tough to pick. Her chicken soup is great, along with lots of other dishes. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  75. One of my favorite meals my mom made was lasagna with lettuce salad and garlic bread. There was a basic recipe for the lasagna, but Mom always threw in and substituted with abandon. It was always delicious, but it was never exactly the same. Once we were making it together and talking and laughing and when Mom cut into it at the table, it just oozed all over the plate. There were no noodles! Er, would you like some Italian casserole? She asked. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have very fond memories of my mom cooking, she did it a lot :) I really loved when she made goulash or shepherds pie! Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

  77. Gosh - my mom was a great cook and made so many yummy things. I guess I remember the Mocha Cake the most because it was sooooo delicious but the three layers slid off each other and the cake looked like the leaning tower of pisa-cake because of the whipped cream between the layers and we laughed and laughed but boy was it tasty. It was a Best of Bridge recipe and I still have it today

  78. My mom was always making casseroles. To this day, I still love a good casserole dish.

  79. I think pot roast is my all time favorite

  80. My mother refused to let us cook for her as she wanted to do it all. Instead, we often took her out to a restaurant. She loved Olive Garden and Johnby Tamale Cantina.

    ReplyDelete
  81. My Mom was always willing to let me experiment in the kitchen. Sometimes I wish she gave me just a bit of input...many failures! My Dad would eat anything though, calling some things "burnt offerings".

    ReplyDelete
  82. My mom was a good cook and I have a lot of memories of meals she made. One of my favorites was lasagne--no cottage cheese, just meat, mushrooms, spices, and tomato sauce with mozzarella on top (shh, the recipe was from the inside of the tomato sauce label).

  85. My mother was the absolute best cook and she'd make me "pea noodles". They're kinda hard to describe, but they were a cross between black eyed peas and dumplings ~ YUM! And, she made the best biscuits, often three times a day! Love you, Mama, and I surely do miss you! ♥

  86. Tacos hard shelled tacos were my favorite growing up. It never failed that on the days that I got my braces tighted my mom would make tacos. I couldn't eat them for dinner because of my braces so I would have tacos for breakfast. To this day when I make tacos I make sure there at least one left for breakfast.

  89. My mom was always cooking from scratch and I loved watching and reading her recipes to her. My younger brother went through a phase where he would only eat chicken drumsticks.I remember one year for her birthday I made chicken and dumplings from her recipe box, to ensure everyone would eat it I roasted some chicken drumsticks and put one in each bowl to 'trick' my brother. Worked like a charm and is pretty hilarious in retrospect.

  90. My mom makes the BEST homemade egg noodles and beef soup. I've tried, but I cannot get my noodles to turn out like hers. (or my pie crust!).

  96. My mom made the best Christmas Candies. She would make a lot of different kinds and then take each of the neighbors a plate of goodies. I still love to make her date ball recipe. It's a holiday tradition I just can not part with.

  97. My New Zealand born and raised grandma made the BEST leg of lamb dinner!! As an adult, she lived in San Francisco, and would make a leg of lamb dinner for special occasions. And it HAD to be lamb from New Zealand! She paired it with roasted potatoes, green beans, carrots, gravy, and a mint sauce she made from the mint she grew between her apartment building and the one next door. Simply the best ever - brings happy tears to my eyes - I requested ( and got) this dinner for every birthday I had until she passed away -

    ReplyDelete
  98. My mom passed away in 1997. She wasn't a fantastic cook, but she tried. In the summer, she always canned lima beans, peas, tomatoes, and soup mix. I still love all of those to this day. Her best dish was spaghetti and cheese. She used spaghetti, an egg, and put lots of cheese in it and heated in the oven. My kids are grown, and they still love it.
    She lived about an hour from me so when I went to visit, I would take her out to eat at her favorite Mexican restaurant. She really enjoyed that, and I miss those days so much.

  106. My mom made homemade jam filled cookies. They were a lot of work but oh so good.

  107. My Mom taught me to sew, quilt and design my own things for house, home, me and business. I was soooo lucky to have a talented Mom. She designed clothes for people who were hard to fit and made oooodles of quilts for family and in those days we didn't have all the tools and great sewing machines to make it so simple that everyone, can make these things today.

  109. Brisket. My mom's brisket is the best. The first time I made it for my husband (when we were dating) he was like "I'll get enough for both of us" and then he smothered the plate in BBQ sauce. *gasp!* You don't eat MY mother's brisket with BBQ sauce. It has the best flavor. So good. I still can't make it as good as mom, hers you could pull apart with a fork without cutting it at all, but it's a work in progress.

  110. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and cornbread. Yes, my mom was Southern!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Mom wasn't the best cook - but she could bake! Dad or I did most of the meal cooking. She used to tease me that as long as I had a can of tomato soup and some pasta she knew we would be eating something. I loved to cover things with some kind of soup and pasta is still a favorite of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  112. My Mum's pastry was the lightest, tastiest I have ever tasted. She used to make a meat pie using a tin of stewed steak with extra onions on top. I grew up during the Rationing of the 1950's so we didn't have a lot of fresh meat. Jennylarking at gmail dot com

  115. One of the cheapest cuts of meat in the late 50s in our neck of the woods was rabbit and my mom made a wonderful rabbit stew! I rarely see it on a menu in a restaurant but always order it if I do. The cheapest cuts are usually the tastiest!

  116. My mother makes the best creamy potato soup and broccoli soup! It is so good all year long!

  117. My mom didn't like to cook but she made the best fried chicken I've ever had. We would have fried chicken, mashed potatoes with chicken pan gravy and green beans with bacon and onions. For dessert she would help us make graham cracker cookies. A graham cracker broken in half, a nice layer of frosting and then the other half of the graham cracker on top. Best dinner ever.

  118. It's funny that this is the topic today - because I just made this meal last night. My all time favorite meal that my mother made and I still make today is beef stew.

  119. Love the low volume bundle and the chance to win it! I always live getting to choose what birthday cake she will make for me. My favorite used to be Mississippi Mud, but my adult taste buds prefer a sweet strawberry cake now.

  120. My mum made the best roast ever and followed it with the best apple pie and custard ever - I'm still trying to live up to her!

    ReplyDelete
  121. You name it--my mom could cook it. I really enjoyed her roast, but all was special. Wish I had gotten that ability!

  122. My mum still makes the best pikelets in the family, still soft and moist the next day. Her scones have declined, she puts that down to my dad no longer working for a flour milling company, so she no longer has access to flour fresh from the mill. Otherwise, after seven kids, she is over cooking and prefers now to eat anything we cook and put in front of her.

  123. My mom made the best stuffed green peppers ever!

  124. My mom cooked the same things on days of the week for the most part; for instance, we made pizza on Fridays, soup on Saturdays, pancakes on Sundays, etc. I remember being in the kitchen with her a lot, especially her letting us kids experiment and cook our own things. Thanks for the giveaway! sarah@forrussia.org

  125. I grew up with my Grandmother on the farm so we are talking about fresh everything in the summer. Green beans with just a little bacon and new potatoes and thyme, rosemary and garlic bulbs. All that with sliced tomatoes and basil with salt and pepper and a fresh loaf of bread for dinner. Pies and every fruit especially strawberries were always close by. Chickens on Sunday with homemade noodles, not pasta, enough spinach and lettuce and squash to feed an army. So I guess I can't pick one meal just an all around love for good earth food.

  126. My mother was not much into cooking; my dad did most of it. However my mom's best remembered food moment was when she bought her young children a meat pie from an English pub and convinced us that it had no gravy on it. "Really??" "Really. No gravy." "Well... okay then." Nom nom nom. She was quite proud of herself and my dad was quite shocked. She still totes that story out to this day. :) Thanks for the chance to win.

  130. My mom had to cook for my dad's very bland palate, but she makes a great prime rib for Christmas and sometimes New Years. She's also getting to cook more fun things with son in law around and just fixes a small portion of boring food for my dad still!

    ReplyDelete
  131. My favorite recipe was a chocolate potato cake that was passed down through German relatives. It is a staple for Christmas dinner and is heavy like a fruit cake although there are only raisins and pecans in it. Yum.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Hands down, I love my grandma's fried chicken and caramel pie. Best meal ever.

    ReplyDelete
  133. My mom made so many great meals all from scratch and fresh garden ingredients. One of our favourites was home made angel food cake - where you had to use 12 fresh egg whites - we would then get custard as well from the egg yolks. thanks so much for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  134. We didn't have a lot of extra money when I was growing up, so my Mom would buy the less expensive (and tougher) cuts of meat. She would make the most delicious and tender meals out of it by cooking it slowly - all afternoon most times. The added bonus was that the oven would also help to heat the house. We would come home to a heavenly aroma and a cozy kitchen in the winter. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  135. My mom came from poor. Her mother made 'paste' for breakfast. It was just what you think, a mix of flour and water heated and stirred til it was thick then you sprinkle some sugar on it and eat it just like oatmeal or porridge. She went to school and got sent to the principles office because the teacher thought she was lying about what she had for breakfast. They had to call her mother to find out the truth and then had to apologize to her. I loved eating paste with lots of sugar when I was a child too. Cindy

  136. My mom's a great cook! During one family vacation, she and I were the only ones awake in the car during a marathon driving session, so she kept herself awake and alert by telling me all her favorite recipes. One that we went over in great detail (because it was a family favorite) was called Hawaiian Chicken. I still remember that trip anytime I make it!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I grew up with my mom cooking a lot of comfort food. We never ate chicken except for KFC. Every Sunday was beef or pork Roast in the oven or pressure cooker with mashed potatoes. Hamburger or turkey burger gravy over rice or mashed potatoes. Hash consisted of ground beef and diced potatoes cooked and lightly seasoned until the potatoes were crisp-tender.
    Homemade cakes and frosting, homemade cookie dough.

  138. My mom does not like to cook. My favorite meal was Kraft Macaroni and Cheese! That is if you refer to my Kindergarten cookbook!

  139. I love my mom's sugar cookies with frosting. I now request them for my birthday gift :)

  140. My mother is an identical twin and they have lived together since I was born - so I sort of have two moms! My mother's lasagna is the absolute best - hands down! I could eat it every day of the week. No one makes lasagna like my mom does - she uses her own sauce and meatballs and it's the perfect blend of ricotta and mozzarella. Oh my mouth is watering just thinking about it! And since we still eat dinner at mom's once a week, I'm hoping she makes it this week!

    ReplyDelete
  141. My favorite meal that my Mom make is also roast beef and roast potatos. With horse radish of course. :) A close second is home made baked mac 'n cheese which I now make for my kids too!

    ReplyDelete
  142. My grandmother always made the best fried chicken and mashed potatoes. I miss her and her cooking. She was the best!

  143. My Mom was a Home Ec major, she could stretch a cooking dollar farther than you can imagine. She was a great basic cook and we always had plenty of good, nutritious food. Probably the most lasting cooking memory I have is making bread. I have never seen a bowl as large as the one she used for bread making. Mom would start with grinding her own wheat flour, then add a third more white flour, yeast, water, dry milk and then she could stir by hand. She would make 12-15 loaves, 14-20 pans of breadsticks (most of which she gave away to neighbors) and then make scones for lunch. Hot with butter and honey, yum! She did this every week for as long as I can remember. When we had all left home she got a Bosch mixer and only made 4 loaves at a time.

  144. Braised short ribs over buttered noodles and peas & her homemade birthday cake/dessert every year on my birthday

    ReplyDelete
  145. Her turkey is delicious. She debones it and cooks it like a roast. But my favorite is roast duck, which is without comparison!

    ReplyDelete
  146. My mom made porcupine meatballs - meatballs with uncooked rice in them, covered in tomato soup, cooked in the oven, and the rice pokes out like the porcupine. I loved it as a kid, and love it today, even though my husband complains about how bland it is! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  147. hmmm this is tough! At the moment, thinking back, favorite meal mom would cook was her cornbread dressing and white acre peas she would cook at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh, there were other foods...but the cornbread dressing and white acre peas is what I ate.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Mom made so many wonderful meals but among my favorites was the veggie dinner, only when Daddy was away (he was a meat and potatoes fan). She make fried green tomatoes (the BEST), fried okra and fried eggplant. Love them all, although I usually serve them separately as side dishes!

    ReplyDelete
  149. My mom made the best scalloped potatoes. My sister now makes them and they are just as good as my mom's were. My mom also made the best salmon patties. I just wish I knew how she made them.

    ReplyDelete
  150. My mom always made the best Swiss steak dinner with mashed potatoes. I can not make it like she did.

    ReplyDelete
  151. My mom makes my grandmother's noodle kugle for most holidays and for special occasions. It makes me the happiest person to smell that making in the oven. She also makes a killer steak which I always find amazing considering she is a vegetarian.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I have to say that the best dinner I ever made was the first time I made homemade spaghetti sauce that my husband declared to taste better (to him) than his best friend's. Now this may seem like nothing special to most people, but there are two important factors going into this. #1. My husband's best-friend is an Italian chef. #2. My husband tells me EXACTLY what he thinks of every meal I set in front of him. lol Sometimes that's not so good. (I'm not a bad cook, just an inexperienced "fresh cook".) I was thrilled to finally get my sauce "just right" and have been making it that way for over 8 years now. :)

  153. My mom made the best fried chicken and potato salad ever. Always crisp chicken and her potato salad is unsurpassed.

    ReplyDelete
  154. My mother was a horrible cook...I'm not kidding! Her version of spaghetti sauce was canned tomato juice. To this day I don't eat pasta. On the other hand, it made me determined to be an outstanding cook.

    ReplyDelete
  155. My mother was a wonderful cook. We grew up on a ranch, so had lots of fresh vegetables in the summer and home canned vegetables in the winter. The cellar was full of the canned vegetable, canned fruit, potatoes, carrots, etc. We had our own beef, pork, lambs and chickens. My youngest sisters birthday was August 2nd and she always wanted fresh fried chicken and new potatoes, peas and carrots creamed for her birthday lunch. I think was a favorite meal for all of us. To the day it is one of my families favorites. I love the giveaways!!

    ReplyDelete
  156. My mother died in 1999. I loved the riced potatoes and milk gravy that she made. I also loved her potato pancakes. And another thing was rice for breakfast -- we didn't have this very often because she had to soak the rice over night. Then she would cook the rice. Hot cooked rice with cold milk and sugar -- Yum!

  157. There are a few stand-out meals that make me think of my mom. One is the red borscht soup she makes every year for Christmas. I just love it, and the red beets with some sour cream and dill is sooooo Christmasy! For summer meals, she would do a meal straight from her garden -- basil pesto, fresh tomatoes, and corn on the cob. Nothing says summer like that meal.

    ReplyDelete
  158. every summer we had a special dinner, just Watermelon and Elephant ears,( Mennonite Rull Coka) fried batter dipped in corn syrup. it was a pretty special meal, messy and fun, lots of laughing in a hot kitchen. mom was the center of it all.

  159. My favorite is a stew my mom made in the pressure cooker. i have never been able to make it the same as hers!!

  160. My favorite...Cheese and Pasta in a Pot. It is like a lasagna, but cooked in a round casserole instead of in a rectangle pan like lasagna. And, instead of lasagna noodles you use shells. Definitely a winner! Thanks for the chance to win your wonderful giveaway!

  161. I always looked forward to my birthday meal made by my mom. Salmon patties, potatoes au gratin and scalloped corn! YUMMMMYYY!

  162. My favourite my mom makes is also roast beef, but for me it's the yorkshire puddings that made it amazing. I still can't quite replicate hers as good as they are.

  166. My mother is not a fancy cook, meat and potatoes kind of cook and no seasoning. She does make the most wonderful turkey and dressing at Christmas (stuffing for the northerners) our family let an aunt pass away before anyone got her coconut cake recipe, so my mom has made sure all the girls in the family has her dressing recipe. Mine just never taste like hers.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Swedish meatballs or lasagna! Without fail, if company was coming we'd have one of those two dishes :)

  168. My mom made the best cubed steak and gravy -- it's the only dish of her's that I don't know how to make but still 14 years later I know exactly what mom's tasted like.

    ReplyDelete
  169. My mom was amazing in the kitchen, so all her dishes were fantastic but her French Onion soup was THE best and very different from the traditional French Onion soup. Her secret ingredient... will remain a secret ;-) Did you honestly think that I would reveal that? hehehehe

  170. My Momma died just before my second birthday..no memories of her. But an Aunt used to make the BESTEST EVER EVER EVER Bisquits & Gravy!! Yum! :)

  171. The last time my 3 sisters & I were together at my Dad's house in 2012, I made a casserole dish that my mother used to make long ago - skillet macaroni & cheese with ham. When I make it now, I always have those happy memories. Thanks.

  172. Does Pizza Hut count? My mother doesn't care to cook, but I do love her fried okra!

  173. Spaghetti! My mom made the best ever and I think my children think mine is pretty good also.

  174. I grew up in England but my parents were Spanish so I loved it when mum made Paella.

  175. I grew up in Kentucky and my mom made the best fried chicken served with biscuits and gravy. It was better than what Colonel Sanders made at KFC! She didn't make it very often, but oh how we loved it when she did!

  176. My Mom was an excellent cook, but her specialty was baking. Her pies and rolls were out of this world! I have never been able to match her flaky crusts.

  177. I lost my Mother when she was 43 years young to Colon Cancer. I feel so robbed as my parents were divorced when I was 5, my Dad kept me hidden from my Mom until I was 14. I ended up living with my Mom when I was 16. I only had her for 13yrs of her life. She taught me to sew clothes, cook and to be the mother I am today. She also taught me I could do anything & be anyone I set my mind to. She was a multi talented woman, I wish I had taken more time to learn each of the things she was able to teach me beyond what she already had. My most fond memory of her was sewing with her and making some crafting things with her. I miss her every day. I wish she could have met my last child and her great grandchildren.

  178. My mom also used to make roast on Sundays! And it was always soooo good. I have never attempted to replicate it.

    But my real favorite thing she made was banana bread. The makes the BEST banana bread. Moist, banana-y, nothing extra to interfere with the banana flavor. So. Good.

  179. My favorite meal of my mom's woul be her meatloaf! Still can't make it quite like hers. My all time favorite is her zucchini bread. Now that is a recipe I do have!

  181. My mum was an excellent pie maker... Sweet or savoury were equally good. However, her cakes were awful! For some strange reason I grew up making excellent cakes and awful pies. We used to have a baking day each week, with her taking home half my cakes and I had half her pies. How I miss her!

  182. My favorite meal my mom made were her tacos,rice and beans.

  183. Not only was my mom not a sewer she also wasn't a cook, lol, She always made pasta and now my older brother and my father (since divorced) never eat the stuff since we got so much of it growing up ( l love it and feed my kids it a lot also, so I picked that up from her) although now we think my son is allergic to gluten, I will have to think up another favorite.

  184. I loved most things my mom made, she was a great cook. She was famous for her delicious desserts, I still crave her raspberry cake.

  185. My mum isn't the best cook, she can follow a recipe but never really experiments. Her jam making is outstanding though and strawberry jam made from strawberries from her garden is the best!

  187. I have many favorite meals that I've made, but one most recently...like in the last couple of weeks... I made Sauerbraten for the first time ever. My boyfriend loves Sauerbraten, so I found a recipe online and gave it a shot. It was a 3 day prep with all the marinating, but it turned out AWESOME! It's a lot of work, so I won't make it often, but I decided it would be a wonderful meal for Christmas!

  189. My mom was a great comfort food cook - so many meals I miss - her baked mac & Cheese (made with spaghetti noodles), her meatloaf, her hamburger roll-ups, but hands down I wish she was here to make some meat pasties (made in a pie form not a calzone form). Miss you mom!!

  193. My mom was a great cook. She pulled off huge wonderful Thanksgiving dinners for as many as 30 people, and she made it look easy. She had a special talent for pies. I also make a pretty good Thanksgiving meal, but I don't make it look easy, and I don't have near as many guests. However, I make a pretty good pie-she taught me well.

  194. My favorite is the story of my mom sending me over to my dad's bakery to get some cherry pie filling and some whipped cream and a pie shell so that she could make a home made cherry pie!

  195. I remember mum making zuchinni mousaka which is absolutely delicious. It's one meal I've never made though as my kids wouldn't eat it unfortunately. Might try it next summer though if my zuchinni plant does well; just for me!
