This is my very first ever blog.  I want to share my mother's recipes.  Since my mom is no longer with us, I recreate them from the memory of taste. 

These are a few of my favorite comfort-food recipes that I have successfully duplicated.

  • bean/barley beef soup.
  • braised meat, potato and lima beans
  • tomato/meat sauce for spaghetti
  • potato latkes
  • blintzes
  • salmon croquettes
  • Simple beet borscht

I will begin providing the actual recipes one at a time over the winter months.  New ones will be added after successful completion.

Let's get cooking.

Looking forward to it. I hope I can adapt your recipes since I have been diagnosed with diabetes. :)

Most of my recipes are totally adaptable. The first time I prepare a recipe, I follow it precisely. Once I am satisfied that I get down, I start thinking of ways to modify it.

I also cook for 1 most of the time, unless you count my parrot, who eats mostly human food. (but she "eats like a bird" & doesn't need much!) I still make "full sized" recipes, though, as I have a big freezer & love "homemade TV dinners". I like all the foods you mentioned and am right now looking for a good lima bean (from dried) recipe...Will you let us know when your recipes are ready by posting it on THEBUZZ? Thanks for your efforts!

It's very thoughtful of you to share your Mom's recipes. I love the very few I have of my Mom's and both Grandma's. :o)

Nobody cooks like mom, that's for sure! What nationality was your mom-love the sounds of her recipes
