Fearless Females: Grandma's Kitchen
I've been slowly sharing the family recipes from my mother and grandmother on Friday posts, so I'll not repeat myself here.
My grandmother LeMaster used to have the biggest meals when we would gather for Christmas time or Easter. I can remember the noodles and mashed potatoes - the noodles were always very thick, almost dumpling like. One dish that she made that I don't see much of any more was hominy. I'm pretty sure that my first exposure to it was at her house. Beef and noodles were another dish I can remember.
My grandmother Wright was the one who started me on enjoying cottage cheese. She liked to eat it with canned pineapple. I will eat it with either milk and sugar, or with pepper, I don't care for fruit in mine.
I know there are others but at the moment I'm drawing a blank.
