Neither of my grandmas were especially good cooks, but somehow I always left their houses a few pounds tubbier. It's got to be all that butter and every grandkid's inability to turn down a hefty wedge of cake (à la mode, obviously) they already sliced. Oh, grandmas. Michael Pollan may disapprove of all those buckets of cream of mushroom you use, but high five, sister. How to Cook Like Your Grandmother is a blog devoted to this worship of grandmas in the kitchen. You will not see the words "lite" or "skim" on this site—just recipes for things like cheesy poofs and pork chop salad. [via Metafilter]
