A homemade buttermilk biscuit broken in half held in a mom's hand steaming with melted butter on top and a knife in her other hand.

In honor of my Mom and all other Mom’s out there, I wanted to share with you 6 Favorite Recipes Handed Down from Mom, including my mom and 5 fellow bloggers. Mom’s are a special breed. They love us no matter what we do wrong (even though they may not always like it!), they feed us, nurture us, and watch us grow into adults who hopefully repeat the cycle!

My mom is super special to me and the older I get, the more I appreciate her. I love her to pieces and I love the values she taught me to live by. She is also an amazing cook and I have shared several of her recipes here on my blog prepared especially by her.

My Mom’s Buttermilk Biscuits are certainly tall and beautiful, aren’t they? The post that I wrote for Mom’s Buttermilk Biscuits is just one of several special cooking days she and I have spent together. I love that my mom enjoys sharing her recipes with me in this way and they will be here forever for me, my children, and any of their future offspring to enjoy. Knowing these were Momma Law’s recipes will make them very special!

This Homemade Pancake Syrup with Utah Scones come from a very special blogging friend I made way back in 2008 when I was first blogging. Barbara from Barbara Bakes and I have a lot in common, from the name “snow” to our family values. These Utah Scones look pretty tasty (we would call this fried dough here in NY) and is her mom’s recipe that she has shared on her blog.

This colorful recipe for Grandma Louis’ Spring Pea Salad may not be a recipe from Michele ‘s mom, but it is a recipe from her mother-in-law and those special types of mom’s deserve recognition too! Michele from Flavor Mosaic says that she loves this salad and it wouldn’t be a holiday meal without it on the table.

Mom’s Potato Salad Recipe comes from Amy at The Blond Cook. Potato Salad is at most picnic tables I sit at and is a staple in the summer as far as Grumpy is concerned. When it comes to sharing family recipes, Amy does so the way I like to share. She shared a photo of her cookbook that her Mom had given her when she was 19 years old. That is a very special treat for her to have, even if her mom was being quite instructional in her book 🙂 This potato salad recipe has Old Bay Seasoning in it which really intrigues me so I’m very ready to give this one a try!

I have an avid affection for Mom’s Cheeseball recipes! It reminds me of the holidays with the Law Family and my mom would take her own cheeseball recipe.  My Mom’s Cheeseball from Peabody over at Culinary Concoctions by Peabody seemingly has a similar experience with her Mom’s recipe! I will not hesitate to make this recipe for my next gathering. I love the unique ingredients her mom uses in this recipe!

We always save dessert for last, in this case, this gorgeous cake is the epitome of saving the best for last! My friend Kristin’s recipe for Mom’s Refrigerator Cake over at Dizzy Busy and Hungry is so eye appealing that when Grumpy saw her photo, his words were “you have to make that!” It definitely is an easy recipe to put together so if you’re looking for something in impress your guests with, this cake will do it – with minimal work!

    Your mom’s food sounds delightful! I just love food passed down from generation to generation as I find it has so much more flavor and sentimental value. Love that your blogging about it too!

    Moms always know best so a great idea to do a roundup featuring their best. Sometimes I think the modern world forgets about old fashioned, home cooking to it’s detriment. Nice job. The buttermilk biscuits might be my favorite.
