I bought a cookbook a long time ago that was entitled "My Grandmother's Table" and thought it would be fun to maybe do something like that with the group here.

The premise of the book was to tell a little short story about one's grandmother (or great grandmother) and provide a recipe that was hers that was passed down through the family, or that was enjoyed and remembered because it was something she made.

If she wasn't a cook, it would still be fun to have a short story and maybe a recipe of something that reminds you of her. I know my one grandmother rarely cooked anything from scratch and I don't remember her even owning a cookbook. wink.gif

All my recipes are at home so I'll be happy to post something later for the group.

I had posted this as a separate topic the other day, but it "vanished" with the database corruption problem. I just noticed this topic and think it would fit in well here.

This is a recipe that my Father's mother often made for the Holidays. She doesn't cook much anymore, she claims five kids have ruined her taste for cooking. Though my father says she wasn't much for cooking in the first place, and that's why he refuses to eat peanut butter and jelly.

This is a good traditional Scottish Recipe for Stuffing or Skirlie

Skirlie (Scottish Oatmeal Stuffing)

1 lg. onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1 cup regular oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

Cook and stir onion in margarine in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until light brown. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook and stir until oats are golden brown and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.

Some people do not like their stuffing crisp. So you can stop cooking when its golden brown. However, if you are using it to stuff a chicken etc, you may want to crsip them so they do not get to soggy.
