Looking for a specific Home Cooking Discussion

I hope someone can help. I found a discussion (a few years ago) where the title was something along the lines of "Tips you should have learned from your grandmother". I've tried to search for it, using various combinations of the words, but I'm having no luck.

I was hoping that someone else may have been following that discussion and could link me to it.

Thanks for any help....

      then there's the cooking w/grandma video series from CHOW. Wish more of these would be made!


        and this one specific to No. NE/Vermont on a quest for comfort food your grandmother would make....cute thread.

          I truly appreciate your help! They weren't quite the one though.

          I tried to look it up by the threads with the most posts, (because I seem to remember it having over 500), but it seems to be just *gone*.

          Oh, well.... At least I'm having fun with the most posts threads...

          Thanks again for your help.

        2. Could it possibly have been a discussion of this book:

          The Frugal Gourmet on Our Immigrant Ancestors: Recipes You Should Have Gotten from Your Grandmother by Jeff Smith (1990, Hardcover)
          This book/author has been mentioned several times over a few years of the home cooking posts

            No, that's not it. I have the book, and love it. The cheesecake recipe is the one I use, but I changed the crust--adding Kosher salt, based on another recipe. awesome. May not be authentic, but it is yummy.

            But I appreciate the thought!

              That's it! The first one. Which is not what I was describing, but it was the one I meant! :-)

              And the others look interesting as well.

              Thanks to everyone, I going to enjoy reading them all!
