    Default Family Recipes

    Traditionally,recipes are passed down throughout families, usually with one central recipe. I will be posting my families "Apple Pie" recipe when I can find a hard text copy. Do you have any family recipe?

    I know........ how to make the most epic sandwich to exist.

    Ingredients:
    Ham (Preferably whole ham straight off the bone but sliced prepacked ham is fine as long as its nice and thick)
    Mayo
    Mustard
    Lettuce (Or cabbage, spinach, something nice and green)
    A Toaster
    Bread
    Cheese
    Salt
    Pepper
    Parsley (VERY OPTIONAL ACQUIRED TASTE) I just like parsley ^^;
    Oven or Microwave or Microwave oven

    You toast the bread slices (2).
    You warm up the ham slice
    After nice and toasty quickly apply a fine coat of mustard and mayo to each individual bread slice.
    You add your cheese of choice (I prefer pepperjack not American myself)
    You slap on the ham slice. (Nice and thick remember)
    You apply a correct amount of lettuce/spinach/cabbage so its not overwhelming but compliments the ham and cheese.
    You apply your salt and pepper inside the sandwich so it nicely melds in. (If you have parsley apply now if you want or forever hold your peace)
    Slap on the top bread.
    Cut into 2 triangles.
    Put on plate (Perhaps with some Dorritos and a coke)
    EAT

    My gramma's cornflake cookies. (Apparently, that is on of the few most bizzare recipes passed down in my family, aside from strawberry-flavored Jell-O with bananas on top!) Oh my Arceus. . . they taste so good. . . Sucks that I don't have the recipe, though :-<

    We have a really good recipe for German pound cake that's been passed down from my mom's side for a really long time. I need to find it so I can post it here.

    This is a recipe my family uses quite often that we stole from my dad's coworker, and it's a great one if I do say so myself. :P

    Mainly the only thing passed down in my family is my Nana's super delicious Turkey Stuffing and Dressing
    She makes it with the giblets and neck of the turkey/toasted bread/celery/onions/garlic/bell pepper and i think a little bit of ground beef though i don't personally have the recipe on hand D:
    it is the most yummy thing in this world and will gladly pass on the leftover turkey meat for some bowls of stuffing and dressing :D

    and the only other thing i can think of would be my mother's goulash, though i think it might be of the standard variety. i'm not sure, i haven't had anyone else's "version" of it to know :X

    Goulash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Looking at that article now, i realize my mother makes it mostly the German/American way, though with lots of pasta noodles lol So ya, basically a thick stew of noodles, hamburger meat, paprika, sugar, onions, (sometimes potatoes), and other random items. It's kinda like the European's Gumbo :P

    Goulash is also a slang term in some parts of the United States, particularly the South, for a dish made with miscellaneous left-overs. Noodles or potatoes are usually added thereafter.

    @yourlilemogirl I think I had something very similar to that except it went by a different name. It was actually really good.

    @Endeavor ya it's very good, and goes by a few different names depending on where you are from. But it's easy to make and can serve a lot of ppl and be spread out for over a week so that's a plus :D

    My mum makes the best marinara sauce you will ever have. Next time I'm back in town I'll put a hard copy of the recipe down in this thread.

    @Hide in Plain Sight for some reason I read that as marijuana sauce on first read. My family has a couple of great recipes, both traditional Jewish food and good everyday cooking. I'll try to dig up a few to share with everyone over the next few weeks--let me know, especially, if there's interest in the Jewish food. I'll have to ask around for that, but it is worth it.

    My family has so many recipes that it's not even funny. Of course, the fact that my grandmother owned her own resturaunt and my parents worked there probably helped too.

    But the best is a legendary rib sauce. There are no hard copies and no fixed amounts of ingredients so it cannot be replicated.

    And another is my grandfather's dried pork belly. This is something that requires specialized equipment (mainly a type of rope made from banana fiber) AND the proper climate.

    Of course, I added a new recipe: a highly complex lentil soup.
