What are the recipes you only have with family?

Asked by filmfann (49519points) 1 week ago

Everyone has turkey at Thanksgiving. I have never had Egg Gravy or Taco Mountain away from my family. Sure, sometimes we have company when we eat these, but I have never seen it served at someone else’s home.

This made my mind kinda spin. I never eat at anyone else’s home unless it’s an ordered pizza. Do people do that? Have dinner at other people’s houses that aren’t family?

@anniereborn You’ve never been to a dinner party? Never been to a barbecue at someone’s house?

There really isn’t anything I make that I won’t make for friends. That includes my mother’s enchilada recipe.

Tortiere, a spiced meat pie !

Scratch made Chicken Liver Pâté my dad used to make that to put on Ritz crackers and we would watch football on Sundays.

@zenvelo Nope, never been to a dinner party. I think the last BBQ I went to was in the 90s.

Most of my mother in law’s recipes I have never seen anywhere else…

Saffron Rice with Chicken
Crispy Polenta
Pizza Granna

Sadly she doesn’t cook anymore and my wife (despite being a fabulous cook) never picked up those recipes.

After my mom died and we were going through her stuff, my brother asked me if it would be okay for him to take her recipe books and cook books. I burst out laughing. I don’t cook, what do I need it for?

Eggs rice and ketchup. I had never heard of this before I met my wife, but she said her family had it a lot when she was growing up. I think it might be a cross-cultural thing from when their father was stationed in Japan.
