Although I’ve been baking since I was an itty-bitty thing, I didn’t start cooking dinners until I was engaged. Once my then boy friend popped the question (for real) my Mom had me start cooking for our family so I’d know what I was doing once I got married. Having a sit-down meal together for dinner was a huge part of growing up for me, and I couldn’t wait to do it with my very own family.
After we’d been married a few months I realized one very important thing, namely that my husband did not have the same set of taste buds that my father did. In fact, he had just about the opposite. While I was very proud of the fact I hadn’t burned a dinner, I could tell he was less than enthusiastic about many of the recipes I had made, simply because they weren’t his kind of food. This left me scrambling frantically and I sent an SOS email to his mom asking for some of his favorite recipes from growing up.
