    my parents grew up in the pioneer homes of Elizabeth, N.J. during the depression and they would always talk about the different families from Poland, Italy, Ireland, and Germany that lived in the apartments around them.

    homemade pierogis, kielbasa, potato pancakes all remind me of my moms cooking.

    Do yourself a favor and take the time to learn from her how to make that corn bread. You'll be glad you did one day. My Mama makes the world's greatest corn bread and I duplicate her recipe to perfection.

    My mom could make a rabbit with some kind of gravy that would put most better cuts of meat to shame.

    Mama did squirrel with wild rice when we were growing up. My brother and I would provide the squirrel, she would provide the delicious meal.

    Veal parmigiana. Back in the early, mid 70s, my mom would make this. Didnt know it was baby cows. Sure tasted good but probably wouldnt eat it today.

    I'm probably a little biased but that's another big plus for that generation. They could flat out cook.

    I actually had the balls to tell my Mama that Kathy makes a better meatloaf than she does. Mama's was good, but Kathy takes it to another level.

    I’d kill for my grandmother’s gravy! It’s been 30 years since she passed.

    My father loved milk toast. You make it by heating milk to scaulding, add salt, a little butter, and a little pepper. Then you pour as much as you like over hot toast. His father ate this in Kansas and brought it south with him. I have had it all my life. :D

    My dad was a hell of a cook. If I had to pin point one dish I'd have to go with eggs Benedict. Always a staple on major holidays and birthdays. Luckily I was able to learn how he made it before he passed. Better than any I've had out anywhere and typically hear that from everyone I make if for

    This seems like one of those things that you have no inkling of or desire to try but as soon as you do it’s actually super dank. Color me interested.
