Just Like Mom Made!

Who doesn’t remember days gone by when your mother’s house smelled constantly of freshly-baked cookies? How about when she unveiled a beautiful Thanksgiving turkey to a room of salivating relatives? We associate food with happy memories and holidays, and there is no reason not to experience that feeling more often! Supper clubs are the new fad and good home cookin’ never goes out of style. Here are some ways to bring those special moments into your current kitchen- by incorporating these recipes into your ‘Mom’ menu!

Chocolate Waffles

Mom probably made you soup when you were sick, or even breakfast in bed. Maybe you remember playing sick when you didn’t want to go to school, so be forewarned- these waffles (in bed or out of it) will have the kids wanting to stay home in bed every day of the week. Don’t forget a dollop of whipped cream on the top!

Turkey and Stuffing Casserole

If you want a fairly easy meal to put together that screams ‘Mom made it!’, try this Turkey and Stuffing Casserole dish. It smells just like home. The turkey almost makes it seem healthier than the alternatives while the stuffing lends to its holiday sentiment. You also get to sneak in the vegetables, so this is bound to be a crowd-pleaser for finicky eaters of all ages!

The Real Deal Lasagna

Italian food has been a mainstay for family dinners and a variety of Americanized chain restaurants for years now. Don’t fret if you didn’t have a plump great aunt from the homeland to teach you the secret family sauce (‘gravy’ to true Italians) recipe. With this dish, you will have them smiling- and people will be floored when they realize that you aren’t even Italian by birth! Feel free to customize the sauce to your liking, especially if your family likes their food a tad spicy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can never have too much chocolate! Chocolate Chip Cookies are the gold standard in motherly love, and these babies taste like the love is baked right into them. Not only will your house smell like a home, the people in it will feel the warmth and care you put into these little morsels. Be sure to make enough for seconds…and thirds!

    I have to laugh a little when I read an article like yours. Not that i diagree with you, but it was nothing like that in my house. My mother did not cook, m father did. We never baked anything. My dad owned a large wholesale/retail bakery until I was 12, so we got all our baked goods there. Of course we 4 kids ran wild in the bakery and by the time I was 10, I no longer ate icing. LOL
