  1. Janette C. – My grandmother’s homemade potato soup. It was and still is so yummy!
  2. John B. – I’m Greek, and my mother always made the most fantastic meals for Greek Easter–all the traditional dishes
  3. Mary P. – Thanksgiving was my favorite. My Grandmother had everyone over and she made everything from soup to dessert. She made the best Italian Sausage Stuffing in the world.
  4. Anne D. – My Mom would make creamy chicken and Mushroom crepes. They were insanely good!
  5. Monica C. – Living in Buffalo, NY….we have a General Mills factory. When they burn a batch of Cheerios, you can smell it all over the city. It smells like a fresh bowl of Cheerios. Cheerios was my favorite cereal as a kid.
  6. Megan F. – Cinnamon rolls from the can the pillsbury kind…they are soooo good and a sunday tradition…or were a sunday tradition 🙂
  7. Suzanne R. – Home made chicken noodle soup!
  8. Aaron A. – This question made me fondly remember a rice & cheese casserole my mom used to make for me. Kind of like Mac & Cheese for a celiac kid in the ’70s. It’s better in some ways.
  9. Angela J. – Tacos on homemade tortillas = yum!!
  10. Ivy G. – A leftover hodgepodge pasta primavera that my mom would throw together at the last minute. Not too high class but I would fish out all the broccoli.
