    Default Favourite/nostalgic food from childhood

    What food/scent reminds you of your childhood? There are so many for me as my mother was an excellent cook, and so were my aunts, but I've narrowed it down to these:

    fresh from the oven cinnamon buns
    apple or rhubarb crisp
    angel food cake with orange rind icing and coins wrapped in wax paper (for birthdays)
    home-made Black Angus beef burgers (my uncle raised the cattle)
    home-made crusty buns that were perfect with burgers, hell, with everything
    potato salad
    fried potatoes with onions
    fresh peas and corn on the cob
    rhubarb dipped in white sugar
    lefske (Norwegian specialty)
    fresh raw carrots dipped in lemon juice and rolled lightly in sugar
    fresh cucumbers in vinegar with lots of salt and pepper

    We made hobo pies out of white bread and apple pie filling on camp fires. I remember them tasting wonderful.

    We also cooked peach cobbler (in dutch oven) on the same camp fires.

    Now I wonder how we hauled all the food into the woods along with the cast iron dutch oven.

    My definitive childhood/nostalgic comfort food would be:

    Fish fingers

    with Cauliflower cheese
    I've never liked lesbianism - it leaves a bad taste in my mouth
    Dame Edna Everage

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Ooh -- how could I forget fishsticks with creamed corn and French fries! And my mother's cabbage rolls. Still the best I've ever had.

    And weiners and sauerkraut.

    My mother's home cooking specialties! (she will not cook for me anymore! Imagine that! hmmmph!)
    1. vegetable soup
    2 beef stew
    3. chile
    4. sloppy joe's
    5. others I cannot think of right now

    Even with the recipes I cannot duplicate it to make it taste like mom's.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    1. Meat loaf, stouffer's macaroni & cheese, buttered corn
    2. Fried chicken, coleslaw & biscuits right out of the oven
    3. Jello jigglers
    4. Twinkies
    5. BBQ pork rinds with vinegar
    Damn, sounds just like a "last meal" request right before an execution.

    No, it never tastes the same. I've tried making several of my mom's recipes after watching her make them and they do not taste the same. I used to think it was just nostalgia making hers taste better than mine, but now I know better.

    Apple crisp. My mom stopped making it when we moved down here - because the apples are imported, they are spectacularly vile. Makes me miss the Northeast a little...

    I used to love those little frozen chicken pot pies, they were all crust and gravy and maybe a few vegetables floating in them. But I loved them. Actually, I loved all TV type dinners, which I didn't get very often, and my mom was a horrible cook, so I thought the TV dinners were Haute cuisine!
    Keep passing the open windows.
