Let's be real, if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here. They raised our parents and they spoiled us when we were little, it's only fair we return the favor now. Don’t miss your chance to make grandma and grandpa feel a little extra love on National Grandparent’s Day.
There are so many reasons why one would go for granma’s or grandpa’s advice. But we at SideChef can’t help but think of food-related wisdom first… Seriously, who out there doesn’t love their grandparent’s (let’s be honest, especially their granny’s) cooking!
Grandma’s recipes are family heirlooms, they are so much more than just cooking instructions… they unite the family, create special memories. So let’s take a moment to appreciate and celebrate our grandmothers and grandfathers by cooking something homely and delicious for them, maybe something they once cooked for us.
Here’s a collection of some classic old-school recipes we usually learn from and associate with our grandmothers and grandfathers. We are sure they will be impressed if you make them one of these meals for this sweet family holiday!
You know your grandparents best, so choose either a sweet or a savory dish they love. Or maybe make both. Make these together with your kids and pass on family recipes! And even if you can’t visit this year, some of these can be easily packed and delivered to you Grammie, and Pop-pop!
