Grandma Approved Family Recipe

The kitchen is the heart of the home and for me it holds so many memories. So many of my memories revolve around food.

I remember when I was just a tiny little girl and we'd go visit my great grandmother on the weekends. She always had a home cooked meal ready. It was never a small meal either, it was a full blown southern meal. I think this is where my love of food began. I remember being in her tiny kitchen filled with the smells of food and all the love in the world. She was an amazing cook. And all those times I'd spend the night with my Grandma and she and I would bake cookies. And the holidays spent in the kitchen cooking for hours with my parents. I especially love baking with my mom during the holidays.

Food brings people together but to me, a great meal is so much more than that. The laughter and stories shared and the memories created are what it's all about. So today's Blogtember Challenge with Bailey from Brave Love Blog is one that I absolutely adore.

A family recipe (if grandma allows, of course)!
