Traditional Foods & Customs You Grew Up With

Hosted by Donna Graffagnino
Group active since Wed, Jan 08, 2014

Share your stories of family, faith, history, and local traditions that define you. Add your favorite recipes from your childhood, those that have been handed down for generations, and those that you've later adopted as your own.

Every region, every culture, every family has its own way of cooking, storytelling, living, and holiday traditions. This is who WE are - a true melting pot of unique and very special people, recipes, and customs.

This group is open to talk about anything you want, the floor is yours!

Who Doesn't Believe Things Happen in Threes?

First it was my Oven that broke, 4 months ago.

Second it was my refrigerator that broke, over a week ago.

Third, it's my dishwasher - it's not completely broken, yet, but it's making a loud noise when the water drains, which means it's the recirculating pump. Great!

ALL of these were bought...

Halloween ideas

Hi everyone,
I want you draw your attention to my spooky spider cookies shaped from a recipe I loved as a child. Dare I admit my mother used to make this recipe in the 50s.
The kids enjoy these because they aren't dripping in artificial taste and colour!

Louisiana Quirks

By Donna Graffagnino - Oct 11, 2014

Every State has it's own personality and quirks - here are just a few from my home.

You know you're from Louisiana if...

When cooking almost every dish starts with, "First, you make a Roux"

When giving directions you use words like "uptown", "downtown", back-o' town", "riverside", "lakeside", "other-side-of-the-bayou", or "other-side-of-the-levee".

Your last name...

Happy October!
