When it comes to cooking and baking, Grandma certainly always knew best. Not only that, but she always made the best food. Don’t tell my mother I’m telling you this, but, a lot of the times, I’d prefer my grandma’s recipes and meals to my mom’s. She’d even try to make some of my grandma’s dishes but they’d never turn out exactly the same…
My grandma just always knew what worked best when it came to preparing food. She taught me quite a few valuable cooking tips and instilled in me the idea that good cooking doesn’t have to come with an expensive price tag. Even now, as I’m writing about my grandma’s recipes and dishes, I can taste her homemade salad dressing and meaty pasta sauce. Nobody made easy dinner recipes (or any other recipes) quite like her.
In honor of all of the grandmas who have ever graced the Earth, I’ve pulled together some of the best vintage and old-fashioned recipes. Recipes that would make your grandmother proud (even if they’d taste better if she made them). From old fashioned desserts to simple dinner recipes, Grandma really knows best.
