My favorite memory in the kitchen is with my mother. We used to bake her famous cinnamon rolls and award winning banana bread together. She would always let me help and we would read stories while we waited for it to bake. I can still smell the delicious treats in the oven!pma_devri(at)hotmail(dot)com

My favorite memory in the kitchen is cooking Thanksgiving dinner with my grandmother. I was thirteen years old and it was my Gram's last Thanksgiving. She was old and frail - just 90 pounds and wanted to make turkey dinner. I helped her make the stuffing from a family recipe. Then my Gram asked me to stuff it in the bird. I was so afraid to put the stuffing in the turkey. My grandmother and I laughed so much after she explained that she put stuffing in the butt side of the turkey too. I didn't want to stuff the turkey, but I did because she asked me to. We basketweaved bacon on the top of the turkey as my grandmother used that to keep it moist. After we put the turkey in the oven, Gram and I prepared the vegetables and pies. When it was time for dinner to be served, Gram told everyone that this was my first Thanksgiving. I was so proud and I knew she was happy to pass on a traditional meal.I've made Thanksgiving dinner each year for my family since Gram died. When I am preparing the stuffing recipe the night before Thanksgiving, I pour a glass of wine and toast the wonderful woman who showed me how making a meal for your family is fun, nuturing and easy.

My most influential woman in the kitchen was my grandmother. She and my grandfather owned a large ranch where I spent a lot of time as a child. They didn't shop at a grocery - we grew and raised all of our food - beef, vegetables, cheese, etc. What we couldn't grow, we traded with neighbors for. My favorite treat was fresh cheese and fresh tortillas that we drizzled with the neighbor's maple syrup. Sounds weird, but it's delicious! I still remember the way my grandmother looked in her well-worn apron as she turned delicious-smelling tortillas on the big wood burning stove.
