If I may substitute grandmother for mom...(stepmother couldn't cook worth a fig).

Her homemade egg noodles, meatloaf, hot chocolate, oatmeal -(I know, but it was good!), the chocolate cake for one of my birthdays, fried potatoes and onions, etc. I could go on and on.

My mother has been dead for over 50 years, but I wish I could have the Cheese strata she used to make. I think she called it cheese fondue, but it was a casserole.

My Mom was a terrible cook. She freely admitted it. She also weighed no more than 95 lbs and she had little interest in eating. Yet, she made a few things that were sublime.

Pie (especially apple ..from our apple orchard, cherry, butterscotch and lemon_
Pineapple upside down cake
Buttermilk soup (a Belgian dish..she was from Belgium)

Other than those, she was not very good. My dad was the primary cook..and he taught me. Thanks, Dad!

Geezus...her everything.
We are Indian by origin, but she makes everything from Indian to Italian to Texmex to American to Indonesian to whatever. From scratch. Pretty much all meals growing up.
I love all her food.

Not to be cliche, but everything my mother cooked for us had one special ingredient - love.

We each had our personal favorites and every dish catered to our individual preferences. Maybe the bacon was better soft, maybe it was better crispy. Maybe more of the sweet topping on meatloaf or maybe a little less. This one likes the roast potatoes to be crispy on the bottom, the other doesn't.

And who doesn't love to eat the crispy bit of roast pork on the bottom that has been sitting in the pork fat? No one got that to themselves, it was divided among all of us.

A mother's cooking doesn't just feed you - it embraces you.
