Is there something you eat now that evokes your childhood?

A couple of months ago, we started The Madeleine Questionnaire, in which you are prompted to recollect some of your eating and cooking memories. Many responses have been submitted, and you can still do it by clicking HERE. Let’s have a look at some of the answers to our question: Is there something you eat now that evokes your childhood? Is there anything on this list that resonates with you?

As you can see, there are a lot of different foods that trigger our respondents’ childhood memories! Did any of the dishes listed above bring back remembrances for you?  If so, take a few minutes and answer The Madeleine Questionnaire by clicking HERE.

I’m not going to play favorites with people’s memories and cherry pick a few recipes from ReciFoto. Since most of the respondents are ReciFoto users, I invite you instead use the ReciFoto app or to go to www.recifoto.com and search for the recipes that intrigue you, or evoke your memories.

I will, however, share my mom’s jelly cookies recipe. She is still making them at age 86, and they never fail to please, or bring back my childhood memories.

 

From Crepes to Pierogis

It’s hard to believe but a month has gone by since the last installment of this blog. Between travel (Cartagena, Washington DC/Monticello/Montpelier) and a prolonged nor’easter related power failure, it’s been a crazy and often fun four weeks.

This week we bring the second installment of The Madeleine Questionnaire response and recipes series, based on the responses of Pam, who has a particularly rich and detailed set of answers to our questions. If you don’t know what The Madeleine Questionnaire is, you can read about it HERE.
And now, for the recipes. As a disclaimer, the recipes below are not Pam’s recipes, but come from those submitted by ReciFoto users, but that feel like they might not be to far afield from those Pam’s family made.

Crepes
Mashed Potato
Roast Chicken
chicken noodle soup

sour cream meat balls (with a bonus- quick budget stretcher)

Piergois

Thanks, Pam, for sharing your memories. If you get to read this and have your original recipes to share, let me know.

Recipes and Results

Last week was the beginning of The Madeleine Questionnaire, in which you are prompted to recollect some of your eating and cooking memories. Many responses have been submitted, and you can still do it by clicking HERE. Starting this week, we’ll have a look at the responses, and share recipes like the ones that inspired those memories. Thanks to everyone that has taken the questionnaire. This week we are sharing a respondent named Britt’s answers.

Barbecue Chicken

Banana Pudding

Mildred’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

We hope you’ll take The Madeleine Questionnaire, too. We respect your privacy and your time. You only have to answer the questions you want, you don’t need to submit your name, and you can choose to keep your answers private.

The featured image has nothing to do with the post, but I took it on vacation last week and thought it was a nice sunset.
