What would you give for an afternoon in your grandmother\'s kitchen?
Leaning over the countertop, you watched as she added the flour?just a little at a time?to the bowl of her old, yellow Sunbeam stand mixer. To her, cooking may have been as second nature as setting the table. To you, it seemed almost like magic?the way she skillfully put things together to create the mouthwatering meals and one-of-a-kind desserts you enjoyed at her table. Likely, it\'s her culinary delights that have set the bar for everything you\'ve eaten since. And let\'s face it, her pan fried pork chops and home-baked banana bread make anyone else\'s versions pale in comparison. If you find yourself wishing for just a little more time in your grandmother\'s kitchen?complete with her stories and the memories of the comforting favorites she lovingly made for you?you\'re sure to embrace this celebration of grandmother\'s cooking. She\'d be proud!
