Other People’s Mom Food #7
OPMF = Other People’s Mom Food
Folks have told me that they like seeing what other people’s moms (and dads and aunties and grandparents) have been up to in the kitchen, and honestly, I just really love sharing the great food writing I see out there all the time, so this has become one of my favorite features at The Mom Food Project. It reminds me (and, I hope, you) that all over this beautiful world, there are people cooking for the love of it, and for the nourishment of the people they love.
Life has been hard for a lot of people this month, but there was still joy, and love, and the act of feeding the people you care about. To wit:
The wonderful poet Erika Meitner (Twitter: @rikam99) remembers her late grandmother in “Elegy with Rouladen, Feliz Navidad, and Clay” (the article is from November, but I’m only just seeing it; thank you, Danny, for pointing it out to me.
Temma of Honey Never Spoils (@honeynvrspoils) shares her grandmother’s recipe for crab cakes, and some photos that make me want to eat my screen.
Lana (@bibberche) comes through again with this lovely piece about her daughters and a giant butter cookie on Bibberche. And while you’re there, don’t miss this wonderful story about her mother’s approach to hospitality. I’ll be doing a feature on Lana this week or next; she’s one of my very favorite bloggers.
Shauna over at Gluten-free Girl and the Chef (@glutenfreegirl) is another of my faves, as I will tell anyone who will listen (and I’m not even sensitive to gluten). This week, she writes an essay bursting at the seams with love for her daughter. And fennel. And the new book she and Danny (@glutenfreechef) are writing!
Faith is over on bentolunch.net (@shannoncarino) making crockpot chicken soup for The Kids Cook Monday!
And over at Quay Po Cooks (@quaypocooks), it’s a surprisingly touching momfood chicken-wings metaphor.
Ben of You Fed a Baby Chili? (@brhau) goes home to momfood: “a sort of miso soup on steroids“.
This is only a small sampling of the Mom Food posts I’ve seen this week. Follow us on Facebook to see more in the upcoming days and weeks.

One notable brew is the Serendipity, made with apples, cranberries and cherries made by “happy accident” after a severe drought washed out the area’s cherry crop. Using what they had on hand, the brewers found that the wild fruit was well suited for fermentation, and the rest of the sour ale’s tale is history.
