Classic Family Recipes

Roasted Strawberry Sheet Cake

Summer fruit cakes were a favourite of my grandma. During the warmer months, she would practically always invite me over to sample her most recent creation. This cake is a remembrance of her. California's Rancho Palos Verdes resident Kristin Bowers

Apricot Amaretto Jam

It's wonderful to make something for my family and friends that my grandma prepared for hers, like this thick, chunky apricot jam! — Linda Wegner, of Robinson, Illinois

Cold-Day Chicken Noodle Soup

My mother made this comforting chicken noodle soup for me whenever I was ill. When I had a cold, it was comforting, but this soup is a dish of warmth on any cool day. Anthony Graham from Ottawa, Illinois

Family-Favorite Caramelized Onions

I received this recipe from my mother-in-law. To my husband's dismay, these onions are now better than ever with a few adjustments, and there are almost never any leftovers. They are simple to make ahead of time and reheat. Sharon Gibson from Hendersonville, North Carolina

Tea Cakes With Pecans

Due to the opulent ingredients, my grandmother Ellis only made her shortbread cookies during the holiday season. The outcomes are, too! — Idaho's Eagle's Trisha Kruse

Grandma's Honey Muffins

We used to enjoy these delectable muffins warm from the oven when my grandmother Wheeler made them, as I well recall. Getting the component amounts right for the recipe was difficult because she was a "pinch of this and handful of that" kind of cook. It has now become a family heirloom! West Bend, Wisconsin resident Darlis A. Wilfer

Potato Salad

This chilled traditional potato salad is a must-have for our Fourth of July feast. It is my grandmother's cherished recipe. Beaver Dam, Wisconsin resident Sue Gronholz

Grandma's Chicken 'n' Dumpling Soup

This hearty homemade chicken dumpling soup recipe has been a favourite of mine for more than 40 years. Every time I serve this kind of soup, I think of my dearly departed Southern granny, who was also a fantastic cook. Prophetstown, Illinois resident Paulette Balda

Lemon-Honey Almond Cookies

This recipe for buttery lime cookies was given to me by my grandma many years ago. Despite the distance between us and the years of baking, our memories of cookies keep the family close. — Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania's Paula Marchesi
