Posts Tagged ‘mom’s cooking

i didn’t go home for the holidays, so i decided to bring home to me.   a nice spread of home cooked meals…

mom makes a mean cornbread!  so soft and sweet, no need for butter it just melts in your mouth.  so cornmeal, flour, eggs and sugar in tow i was ready to go!   but it turned out totally gross!

not to fear, i had the christmas spirit and kept going with my homemade feast.

my grandmother (may she rest in peace) was the best at making fried plantains. it’s one of my favorite side dishes (though i actually pile it on the plate like it’s the full entree).   i got to frying only to find they weren’t ripe enough…

just when i was about to give up.  the time had come for me to make my famous apple crumble pie. AND it came out perfection.

i do miss my grandmother during the holidays and wish i was home with my mom.  but this holiday i also realized, home is where the heart is and my heart knows how to bake pie.
