Today my grandmother and the girls' great-grandmother is turning 93 years old! As far as I know, no one has lived longer in our family, and this amazing lady continues to inspire us all.
My grandmother's kitchen was a warm and magical place, and I have wonderful memories of baking and cooking with my grandmother as a child. She was always patient and soft spoken, and always did her best to cook everyone's favorite foods. Her Southern style pecan pies, homemade biscuits, black eyed peas, cole slaw, and fried chicken are still legendary.
When I'm baking with my girls, I try to be as gentle and kind as my grandmother was, even on days when we are in a hurry and that can be a real challenge. I truly hope one day my girls will have special kitchen afternoon memories to remember and pass on too.
Happy birthday Grandma/Granny! We are proud of you!
Do you have special memories of time spent with your grandmothers?
I'd love to hear your stories :)
