    I have a few favorites from when I was a kid - tuna noodle casserole. My mom's meat pie. Blackberry cobbler made with blackberries I'd picked from the massive bushes on the side of the road. Thimbleberries and salmonberries. And my mom knew how to fry an egg like no other - all crispy on the edges and soft in the yolk. It was the best when we used to save our own bacon and meat grease in a can by the stove. She was pretty good with whole wheat pancakes too.

    I just got jealous of your childhood. Salmonberry pies with dollops of cream ( my sister k8eekins would add custard to it too with cream on top) ... Thimbleberry jam ... Omg!

    Reminds me of swim practice growing up... we'd get them after and eat in the car on the ride home. Ahh... nostalgia. Haven't had in forever. Love that they are individual portions!
