Mouth-Watering Memories: Candied Yams

Posted By Food on Jan 2, 2007 at 2:47PM

Did you and your family experience any great kitchen moments this holiday season? Did you sit around and reminisce about the way mom used to use this special technique when making brownies? Or how about the time when Uncle Bobby roasted a whole pig in the backyard? Me, I ended up talking endlessly about grandma's specialty yams.

This year she couldn't make it to our house for Christmas, so my dad called her up to get her "secret" yam recipe and much to our surprise

begins with a can! That revelation led to a bunch of family food talk and although she couldn't be there with us, it felt like she somehow was.

So how about you, do you have any secret family recipes or mouth-watering memories you'd like to share? Join the Mouth-Watering Memories group and tell us about them! I'll post my favorite entries for everyone to enjoy!

Mouth-Watering Memories: I Smell Like Cinnamon

Posted By Food on Dec 28, 2006 at 10:32AM

When I was visiting my family for Christmas, my sister told me that the smell of cinnamon always reminds her of me. At first I was surprised, I wasn't sure why, but then she reminded me that I used to love chomping down on cinnamon flavored toothpicks. Apparently now whenever anyone eats Red Hots or Hot Tamales, she now thinks of the time I caught her sabotaging the kitchen in my dollhouse. Specifically how she shoved the toy root beer into the toy microwave and it NEVER came out...

So, how about you? Are there any food scents that trigger old memories? If so then post them in the Mouth-Watering Memories group.

I can't wait to read them all!
