The comforting aroma of freshly baked bread reminds you instantly of summertime at grandma’s. Dad has made his famous firehouse chili again, and it’s just as good the fiftieth time as when his dad made it for him as a boy. Mom has packed the jar to the brim with heavenly chocolate chip cookies using that secret ingredient, just like her mother used to do. Food and recipes are interwoven in the fabric of our family lives, and they’re among the most important treasures we hand down from generation to generation. They gather together our loved ones, help us remember those who are long gone, and inspire timeless traditions.
That’s why, to kick off our 2013 Food Blogger Bites series, we asked our Top 100 Mom Food Bloggers for the number-one family recipe they plan to hand down to their kids. From cinnamon rolls to chicken soup, these dishes are sure to inspire your own family traditions! — Max Minckler
