Jeff BookerAs I watch your show each week and you talk about the pioneers and the hard life they had I think about what my great grandma said about her long life. She was 105 in 1993 when she died. She said you didn't know that life was hard you just did it because you had to. So made a great life for her and her family. The best she knew how.

Kelly Wildridge WhyteMy Mamaw ( yes, I'm from West Virginia and proud of it 🙂 ) was a great cook, but my favorite thing she made was her quilts. She'd use the scraps from the dresses she made us and make the prettiest quilts you ever saw. Sleeping under Mamaw's quilts kept you warm just like her love for us. And while I'm on the subject of grandparents, if you still have them, do yourself a favor. Sit down with them NOW and record their stories about the old days, how they "made do" during the Depression, what they did for fun and so on. We lost Mamaw in 2000 when she was 95. I was almost 50, so I'd had her a long time. We found a big suit box of pictures at her house. I started going through them and discovered names of the folks and approximate dates written on the backs. It took me a minute to recognise the handwriting, then it all came back to me. When I was in high school in the late 1960s, I had sat down with her and written all the info she gave me on all those pictures! Do it ! You won't be sorry !

Jennifer CrimMy grandmother, she would call every week and ask if we were comin up to her home in the mountains of eastern kentucky and what did i want to eat. I would say well granny i sure would like me some of them shuck beans, cornbread and some cucumbers cut up. Well when we would get to grannys around noon she would have it all spread out on the table with a big glass of ice tea to boot. Back then to me we was as rich as one person could be with such good food as that and family to share it with. God rest her soul we lost her in November 1999 to congestive heart failure and i have not had a kettle of shuck beans since she passed.

Carl PoitevintMy grandmother many years ago used to make what she called Scrapple. It was made from scraps of cured ham, corn meal, and more than likely egg to bond it together into a loaf pan and refrigerated. It could later be removed from the pan, sliced, and fried. I remember it being pretty tasty. This all came about as a result of her upbringing on a farm when they butchered their own hogs and the scraps were made into this mainly for breakfasts. 🙂

Cara SchwenderDefinitely her green beans cooked in bacon grease. When I was little, I often stayed with her when my mother was in the hospital. She had a huge garden. We would walk through in the evenings and pick what was ripe. She would give me a penny candy bag and I got to pick the cherry tomatoes she grew for me. We would sit at the end of the garden where she would pull her salt shaker out of her apron pocket and we would eat the tomatoes. She always came on Sunday for dinner and we always played dominoes after supper. She was the only grandma I knew. Miss her

Becky Henderson BredaThe perfect pound cake. Crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. And also the most amazing chicken and dressing... And chicken and dumplings... And flour bread. I miss her and the way she prayed when she misplaced things and then they were found. I miss the way she would tell us how if we were sick, we should get whatever we wanted and she would call us girls "sweet doll baby..." Dangit, my eyes are leaking now.

Shelly Falloon DierkingLove reading everyone's comments & precious memories! My Gram was a dairy farm wife, her family was from Canada she made Everything from scratch! My Pop either hunted, grew or raised 90% of their food. Some of my fav food memories are Squirrel & dumplings, fried rabbit, milk gravy, deer roast, wild turkey salad, canned green beans, Amazing mashed potatoes, blueberry & strawberry jam, double layer dark chocolate cake with an inch thick of dark chocolate icing, Apple crumb pie... I could go on & on. Everything she made was Amazing!! I spent summer's with them as a kid & had the run of the whole 280 achers of farm property in Mid-Missouri. Town was over 10 miles away but it seemed like we were so much farther away from town. My Gram taught me to cook, play rummy & care for others & my Pop taught me how to milk a cow, drive & skin a rabbit. Lol.

George TerrellI grew up in a three generation home, my mom's parents lived with us. I don't remember my grandma being a particularly good cook, but she did keep my dad and grandpa from killing me. No matter whatever stupid thing I did, I knew I could get behind my grandma, all 98lbs of her, and she'd fend off both of those pissed-off guys with a broom, all while I was giving them the raspberries.

Cindy Cain SandersGranny made chocolate gravy and we all loved it, as far as we know no one ever really got the recipe. She was a mother everyone & was very loved by all. We all miss her a lot. In fact this picture looks just like her & the old kitchen she had.

Angela EldridgeEvery Year we had hunters that came in from Baltimore Md to hunt deer on our property in Hancock Md, Pap allowed only a few to hunt on our 200 acres. Every morning my Grandma made a huge breakfast with home fried potatoes, And started bread to rise for evening meal. She would threaten the hunters at breakfast if they came back at dinner with no deer she would cut there shirt tales off , this was a pride thing with the hunters and they received no homemade hot bread .We don't have pride and respect like that anymore.

Kelly Riley CyrusI am 52 & remembering my great gr'ma Powell was the best. She was so matter of fact. I remember she ALWAYS wore a 1/2 apron under her day dress (NEVER took it off unless to bath) & kept her "spare" change in it. Come to find out she kept a spare of exactly $200 every day for situations. She drank 1 Pabst Blue Ribbon beer a day, said Merle Haggard could put his boots under her bed anytime & the BEST thing she ever made for me were Hoe Cakes!!! With pintos & onions....the best!!!

Mary DabrowiakGrandma raised 9 kids. She would make biscuits every morning and cornbread every evening. One day each week food for that day would be sparse for this was quilting day. The big quilting loom would be pulled down from the ceiling, the eldest children were in charge of chores and watching the youngest ones while their momma was busy making the quilt. It would take weeks for her to finish the work of art. In those days a good quilt might fetch $1.00. Good wage considering granddaddy made little more than that in a 60 hour work week. She was a grand lady.

Michelle BeverMy grandmother's peanut butter cookies are the best ever !!!! When I made them for the first time they just didn't taste right, I had to call my mother (grandma was gone about a year) to get the reason why. All I will say is that it's all about the shortening she always used.

Jamie IceThis definitly wasn't my favorite but my grandma would fry up pork brains and eat them on a sandwich. then when she would eat it she would say it would make you smarter. I said "well then grandma, I will be dumb forever." being the german she was she would say "awk Angie, what am I gonna do with you". Boy do I miss my grandma.

William McClureMy Grandma Ranke made the best meatloaf. To this day, some 25 years I can still taste it and have always regretted not getting the recipe, if there was one, before she passed.

Katherine ElizabethMy gramma made a lot of crochet objects...slippers, scarves, blankets, Knick knacks, everything-really! She made for me a brown hat that comes to a point at the top. I have always referred to it as my Acorn Hat though, it may be said to resemble something more...boob-like! Ha! I have been wearing it for about 20 years and it's just a great reminder of how she helped others in the way she could...as she donated thousands of hats, mittons and scarves to a hospital near her house in Lansing, IL. She passed away last November and lives on through her 7 daughters and many, many grand and great-grandchildren.

Carl KidderMy grandmother Dunham lived with my Uncle George who after coming back from WW2 took care of his younger sisters. Aunt Sally was 6 when my grandfather died. But my grandmother had a recipe from my great grandmother of cut molasses cookies I loved to this day. She gave the recipe to my mom and my mom gave it to my wife who has made them and they taste just like my grandmothers. Grammy Dunham also made donuts and had a big glass crock full. She made sheet cakes full of biscuits too. She died young at 70 in May 1973.

Vickie Neal WillmuthI was blessed to grow up with three great grandmothers, and my two grandmothers. Great Grandma Holt made the best ginger bread, Great Granny Neal made sugar cookies the size of dinner plates (or so it seemed to me as a child), Great Grandmother Dangeau made the best apple pie, Nanny made mayonnaise cake, and MawMaw lemon pie. I am Arkansas bred, from six generations of Southern women---yes, I own black iron skillets and deviled egg trays.
