“In Grandma’s Kitchen” was my childhood (Connections, July 15). Like writer Miriam Weinstein, I was blessed with one of the Grandmother Greats. She was always cooking up something delicious, and from scratch. I will forever cherish those times in Grandma’s kitchen, when we would talk about everything and anything. I learned to experiment with food and realized that some of the best-tasting things don’t come with directions. I think there is an important life lesson in there that goes beyond cooking.
