Windows to my youth
bring memories of baking
with Mom’s loving hands –
We tasted her love in each
yummy spoonful of sweetness

Those look mighty delicious, Lauren. 🙂
That was a lovely Tanka! Enjoy your Sunday. Hugs xx
Thanks, Deb, they were! 🙂 And every time I bake, Mom is with me, as she was my teacher and such a good baker and cook! 🙂 Hugs! xoxo
I read your words Lauren and immediately went into the kitchen and mixed up a batch of maple walnut cookies. They are rich beyond belief. Perfect for tea this afternoon on the patio. NOW if you were just a little closer …. Virginia
Awww…I commented on your cookie post, Virginia, and they look beyond delicious! It would be nice to share some tea and cookies! Thank you!
Mmmmm…. cookies! And a sweet poem to match. 🙂
Thanks, Holly, they were good and Mom was the best baker and cook! 🙂

Thanks very much, Gabby, I appreciate your kind words and baking was one of Mom’s passions and now it is mine (although, we don’t eat the yummy treats too often)! Hugs back to you! 🙂

Yes, she always loved getting baked goods from my sisters and I and my kids (now older) do enjoy baking once in awhile! Something to remember Grandma by…thanks, Mira~

Thanks, Francina, and they sure do! Hugs! xoxo
Nice tribute. I know I so miss cooking with my mom and not being able to call her and ask how she made something. Angie
I feel the same way, Angie…right after she passed away, there were times when I was about to call her with a question and then realized she wouldn’t be there…thanks for visiting and our Mom’s are watching over us~
Awww…thanks, Diane! xx
