They go by many names – Grandma, Nonna, Oma, Granny, and Gram to name a few.
Their cooking influenced not only what we ate, but what the entire family enjoyed.
Our Family Cookbook Editors have preserved some of their grandmother’s recipes so that they can be passed down to future generations and help their memories live on forever.

This is a recipe I found in my own Gram Helen’s recipe box from her husband’s grandmother in St Andrews, Scotland back in the late 1800s. I now make it at least several times a year and every time I do, I think of my Great-Great-Granny Euphemia Summers Peatie.
