Just Like Grandma Used To Microwave
"Just like grandma used to make."
Mmm. Just hearing that phrase conjures up a sweet, shimmering miasma of freshly churned butter, cinnamon, gingham, pirogi, pie crust and chocolate chips -- with a turkey leg on the top.
OK, so maybe it's more of a nauseating miasma. Still, the idea of Grandma's making -- whatever -- evokes comfort and warmth like nothing else. While "just like Grandpa made" may conjure up a pocketknife, wood shavings and a hand-carved rocking horse ("Wa-a-a-! I wanted 'Call of Duty 4'!"), Grandma's got him by the dumplings when it comes to gold-drenched memories.
