    Apple pie and whiskey! These are some of my favourite things. (And whiskers on kittens too I suppose…)

    Great article. 🙂

    Oh how true this rings. Though so many of her amazing dishes left with her, I have successfully recreated my Nana’s chicken soup. But it only works if I ask her for a little help before I start. 🙂

    Loved this.

      I think if I asked for help Grandmom would have come back just to tell me to figure it out myself…

    Hmmmm . . . I always thought my Grandma threw in an extra dose of love when she baked and that’s why it never tasted the same. Turns out she probably used whiskey too lol!

      No, no one leaves my house alive. Even moms and grandmothers end up tipsy – and they’re the most fun to get that way.

      Jack would probably work just fine.

    I have found that almost all recipes can be improved by adding some alcohol. As long as you include the baking in the grief-defeating equation as well as the alcohol…

    Delightful story! I’m in charge of Thanksgiving dinner this year, so I may try a little whiskey in our apple pie, too.

    Great story! Grandmas are awesome, whether they cook brilliantly or not. And seriously, some don’t. You’re one of the lucky ones!
