When a recipe has been passed down for generations, you can bet that it’s trustworthy. Old-fashioned recipes are time-tested and Grandma-approved. Best of all, they usually remind you of your childhood—when Grandma would actually make them for you!
The recipe that makes me most nostalgic is probably my family’s beef stew and biscuits—the ultimate comfort food. The soggy, sweet biscuits soaked in the beef stew were absolutely addicting; I definitely went back for seconds. It’s such a simple, vintage recipe, but I remember it so well!
