After the popularity of our Impossible Quiche recipe, here is one for the sweet tooths. Jo tells us how this recipe was one of the many that her mother passed on to her and how she now keeps traditions alive by baking the family favourites.
“When I moved out of home my mum gave me a huge number of really easy and cheap recipes to prepare me for motherhood and budgeting for a family.
I grew up cooking with my Mum when she wasn’t working as a carer in aged care and she prepared me well life skills wise. I spent an awful amount of time with my Nanna too, her mother.
When I was an at home mother with a young family I made time to make sure I learned all of not only Mum’s special recipes and but also her mother’s treats, Christmas puddings, and preserves so these skills were not lost and were handed down in the family for future generations to enjoy.
Since both have now passed away I have now been handed that task of baking and cooking all the well-loved treats that we all loved growing up.
Even though we do lose people in our lives I truly believe that they can live on through food which can trigger the nostalgic memories of special times we spent together before life got too busy.”
