Food has a way of transporting you back to another time and place. The aroma of a familiar food or seeing
a particular dish can spark memories of our childhood. Maybe of family gatherings around the breakfast table where the air is filled with the smell of fresh coffee, fried bacon, fluffy pancakes, and real maple syrup. Holidays when families come from far and near to gather around a big roast turkey or brown sugar glazed ham with all the fixin's.
Special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries when the air is filled with laughter and conversation
as bowls and platters are passed around for all to share. Winter lunches of grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Summer goodies like peanut butter and banana sandwiches and picnics with fried
chicken and potato salad and creamy coleslaw. Homemade cakes and candy and fresh baked cookies all made with love. Yes, food can be magical and can bring back all the memories of home.
Memories of Home is a collection of my favorite recipes, many that I remember from childhood. Like my Mom's chicken Croquettes, which were always a family favorite and her peanut butter pie that still makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I think about it.
These simple recipes are some that I grew up on. Like my Mom's old-fashioned Cinnamon French Toast and her delicious Apple Turnovers, still warm from the oven.
These recipes say "home" to me and they bring back the happiest memories in my life. They say "Love" and they bring back memories of time spent in the kitchen with my Mom, learning to make each and every one. These are the memories of home.
