Passing it on...

While visiting our kids in Cincinnati we dined out a few times.  It's pretty much standard procedure for us to hit up Skyline one night (a four-way for Mr. D, and a three-way for me) and Dewey's pizza, just down the street from the kids, on another night.

On this visit, Cara requested to make a meal at home one night.  She wanted to learn how to make her great grandmother's chicken and homemade noodles.

Cara is an excellent cook/baker and loves to try new recipes, but this time, it was good old comfort food she wanted to make.  If she wanted to enjoy one of her favorite meals in Cincinnati, she would have to learn to make it herself.  

And that is what she did.
Back in the day ... I learned how to make this recipe in Topeka, Kansas under the instruction of Mr. D's grandmother, in her kitchen.  (Mr. D's mom had to give me a refresher lesson about 5 years after my first lesson)  I love that this recipe is being passed down to another generation.

We got busy making the noodles first.
I use the "we" lightly here, since I made Cara do all the work.  :)

She used her Le Creuset pot (wedding gift from her hubby) for the first time.
I L.O.V.E. the color!
Actually that orange would look fabulous in my kitchen
maybe we should trade?  No?

Good color choice Cara!
Orange is the 2012 color of the year!

I'm telling you this girl is a natural in the kitchen --

Everyone loved her meal -- including her Cincinnati city boy -- who didn't know he was eating a meal from redneck country!

Making dinner with our "Wild One" was fun.  All of us cleaning up after dinner was priceless!

I just want to put this out there ---- all three of my kids can cook and bake.  When they want to.
Cara, your Grandma D and Great Grandma S would be very proud of your dinner and you!


  1. They have a good teacher !!! So fun to watch the fruits of your labor in progress isnt it. I remembber when you showed me how to make those noodles at camp, I had never made home made noodles before that. Loved the photo's, makes me kinda miss that sweet girl of yours.

  2. What a fun time! I could use a guest blogger :-)

  3. MMMMmmmm -- I'm getting hungry!

    One thing is sure, they do not get the baking / cooking gene from me ;)

    Love that you are such a good cook / baker Mrs D!
