    For me it is chicken and dumplin's. Nobody makes them like Mom.

    OK, Grandma did. She taught Mom.

    Some fresh creamed corn and sliced tomatoes on the side with iced tea . . . I'm salivating right now.

    Man, that's absolutely the first thing that came to mind. :thumb:

    As some of you here know, I lost my mom in BR in Dec 2004.

    My wife has my mom's recipe for C & D.

    I still haven't asked her to make it for the simple reason that although
    my wife is an excellent cook, it won't be quite like mom's.

    Thanks for the prompt red.

    Maybe one day soon I'll ask.

    PS My bride made some primo crawfish fettucine on Saturday when we had some friends over.
    I'm not kicking her out anytime soon. :hihi:

    A stew she calls Bridgette Stew (named after her friend Bridgette who made up the recipe). It's a thick lamb stew made with lamb cubes, carrots, mushrooms, and a ton of red wine. It is served over buttered egg noodles.

    I haven't had it forever. I may have to dig out my copy of the recipe and make some.

    What my Mom calls Camp Stew. A variation of Brunswick Stew that is first on my list of many great foods that she makes. Taste Mama's love in every bite.

    I think we need to post our copies of our Mom's recipes and share them!

    The chicken and dumplings, and the camp stew sound good!

    It was a great night in my house.

    My wife was off today and made us TWO crawfish pies with the recipe from John Folse's enormous cookbook my aunt sent me for Christmas last year.

    IT WAS FREAKIN' AAAWWWWESOME !!!!!!!

    Mom NEVER made crawfish pie like that...:grin:

    Gingerbread. Hot gingerbread was a great afterschool treat.

    Homemade pimento and cheese. Never found any like it.

    Cornbread. Real cornbread made in an iron skillet, not too dry, not too moist.

    Two more of mom's favs.

    I remember summer vacations in the 60's to places all around the South to camp and fish...

    ...and on the way to those places...

    ...mom's pimento and cheese sandwiches on the tailgate of the ol' '62 Comet station wagon...

    ...with a Coke to wash it down...

    Man, them's was the days...

    Can't narrow it down to a dish, but for a meal:


    Meat loaf or fried chicken
    purple hull peas
    string beans
    mashed potatoes
    fried green tomatoes
    cornbread
    sweet tea
    apple dumplings

    My friend, that's a feast. I'd attack it this way. First, I'd work like the devil on everything but the meatloaf. Go a little light on that cause that would leave more for meatloaf sammiches later, ain't nothing much better than that. I do love purple hull peas and cornbread.
