Hi! I’m Laura from Mother Would Know. As part of the Progressive Eats group, I’ve gotten to know Lana and her blog so today, I’m taking a turn to help her out while she recuperates from surgery.
Lana and I both grew up in the 1950’s and ‘60’s – Lana in a large family in a rural Southern town and me in a small family in urban/suburban New York and New Jersey. Our families and their food traditions have little in common, but we have a shared desire to be authentic and to spread our belief in simple food, prepared with love and served with graciousness.
On Mother Would Know, I try to demystify cooking. Whether it’s a simple salad, a dish on my culinary bucket list or a sophisticated French dessert that intimidates me (and maybe you, too), I’ll make it, blog about the experience and provide enough practical advice that even a novice can feel comfortable getting into the kitchen and making the dish.
Today, I made a colorful and healthy Tomato, Feta, and Olive Salad that harkens back to a salad my grandfather used to make. It’s an uncomplicated dish – one that would be perfect for a hot summer night in Georgia where Lana is recovering, in Washington, DC, where I now live, or wherever you are currently “hanging your hat,” as our parents used to say. Please come visit to get the recipe and be sure to say ‘Hi.’
