Mother’s Day – Favorite Food Memories

Mother's DayWhen I stopped seeing my mother with the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself. ~ Nancy Friday

Often our earliest memories are the favorite foods our moms made special … just for us. For some it might be a family comfort food dish; for others a favorite ‘mom’ food might be a delicious cookie.  To celebrate Mother’s Day we reached out to our friends on Facebook and Twitter and asked about their favorite “mom made just for me” food. Some of our Twitter Chat  #FoodTVChat guest hosts and guest chefs joined in the fun along with social BBFs. Hope you enjoy!

It’s chocolate chip pancakes for our pal at the West Egg Cafe in Atlanta. Note the tip! Use mini chips so they don’t sink in the batter.

Our Facebook friend Dana still considers beef stroganoff a special treat from her mom. For Facebook friend Kaye it’s the sweet and sour flavors of her Aunt Marcie’s stuff cabbage recipe that brings back memories.

Our two special friends from All Star Academy surprised us a bit with their responses. Sharon “Nonna” Damante’s mom just doesn’t cook. While Sherri William loves her mom’s sweet potato pie, her mom doesn’t really like to cook either. With two talented cooks … these ladies’ mamas shouldn’t have to cook!
