Cadbury Flake candy bars. My Grandmother would get them for us when she visited Scotland. I still love those things.

My mom's spinach casserole. Spinach baked with a sh*tton of cheese, eggs, and butter. I still love it so much.

I always looked forward to pizza day at school.  Those gross rectangles of pizza not really fit for human consumption.

My mother's apple crisp or her homemade chex mix. Hell yes I have the recipes for both (among other things). If I made them as often as I want them I'd not be able to fit through any doors. evar.

I'm guessing it's been a while since you made that chex mix though.

I don't have many good food memories from my childhood. It's why I'm so obsessed with good food now. The entire list is probably: the first time my dad took me out to an Indian restaurant; when my grandmother first taught me to eat cold leftover steak for breakfast; fresh roasted chestnuts at the Kerstmarkt in Aachen; my first rijstaffel in Den Haag (I think); and eating fresh and hot olie bollen and stroopwaffelen at a farmer's market on a frozen lake in Wassenaar,

My mom makes outstanding lasagna and mac and cheese from scratch. We'd always make homemade peanut butter and caramel popcorn balls for halloween... then there was tuna noodle cassarole which now I want to make too.

Friday night Mexican food with my family at the little Tex-Mex place down the street from where I grew up. We would always order Queso Flameado (stringy melted cheese with chorizo, rolled in warm tortillas), which I still crave every time I'm in a Mexican restaurant.

Waking up on a Saturday or Sunday morning to the smell of my dad making breakfast. Bacon, eggs, homemade biscuits, gravy, all the good stuff.

Helping my mom make spaghetti after school, because it was the one meal I could help with and not really fark up. My first real memory of cooking.
 
2014-07-10 03:08:57 PM  
My favorite treat when I was little was Yoohoo. I called it "chocolate milk this kind". When I was older, one of my favorite treats was a cheese pizza from Pizza Hut.

I grew up on a ranch in rural Texas. Usually, if we didn't grow it, we didn't eat it, so those were treats to me. I was a simple child.

My dad always used to make us pizza on Saturday nights and we'd watch Star Trek: TNG.

My grandma's cooking. Fried chicken, greens, mashed potatoes and gravy, meatloaf, and chocolate chip cookies. Old fashioned Okie food made with love.

My mother, when she fed us, made fried spam and Miracle Whip sandwiches with a beating. >:/

Sent. The Daddie's/brown sauce and ketchup are to be squirted in in whatever looks like a reasonable amount. Marmite in a couple heaping tablespoons, till it looks good. I was taught to measure them by taste rather than volume.

My mom would make Irish soda bread and serve it to us with warm butter and cold milk and it would be such a treat for dinner.  It turned out, it was right before pay day and she couldn't afford to buy groceries.  But we thought we were being spoiled.

My grandmother, who was Polish, would make these incredible potato pancakes. I remember sitting in her kitchen with my brother and grandfather eating those things as fast as she could make them. My grandfather ate his with grape jelly and my brother and I just salted them but you can eat them with practically anything. I fnally figured out the recipe a few years back and my kids love them too. I make them at New Years and eat them with sour cream and caviar.

Sounds great.. and something I could see next to the Blini for Russian New Year. Eastern Europe liked to share stuff like that.

Boston, Lamb chops. I was subject to tons of different foods as my mother catered several DC embassy's who could not afford local chefs. She was BFF with Julia, so lots of better foods that way. I have little access to lamb now, so it is a major treat.
