Pierogis. I grew up fairly poor, and my mom was brilliant at making cheap dishes shine. Once every two weeks would be pierogie night. She would hype it up for days to me as if they were the most indulgent dinner in the world, pan fried and served with bacon, fried onions, and sour cream. I would get so excited for it thinking that it was some exotic delicacy.

My parents would get me anything I wanted for lunch on my birthday and deliver it to my school when I was young, and more than one year I asked for pierogis. That’s how great and fancy I thought they were.

Even to this day, pierogis are my ultimate comfort food. Homemade, cheap frozen ones, restaurant quality, doesn’t matter. I eat them and I feel like I did as an excited kid. I know logically they’re just cheap mashed potato dumplings, but my emotional reaction is the same as if I just had a steak dinner.

This and rectangle pizza in general. I felt like fucking Citizen Kane when I hunted down and ordered a box of what supposedly was the same brand they used to serve in schools in the early 90s, but it just wasn't the same. I have all this money but I can't get back to elementary school.

A few different poverty meals. My parents were broke AF, but worked hard. They almost always cooked us something for dinner. Whenever I cook one if those meals these days, I get huge flashbacks.

Work hard to fix it, regardless of who is at fault. You'll never regret the effort. You will regret not making the effort. I've lost both parents and would kill to have a few different conversations with them.

This shitty instant tri-coloured pasta they used to make.
All the brands were discontinued ages ago but I can still taste the flavour in my head and it gives me a flashback to my youth.

MY mom's chicken soup. She knows just the herbs to put in and I have many fond memories of settling down with a bowl of it with her to watch a movie or do homework or something.
I get to see her again for the first time in a year and a half in a week and I'm very excited to see her and eat some soup.

Thank you for your post anon. It reminds me of the potato latkes my mother made and many times she would send me to school with latkes in my Pound Puppies™ lunchbox. The first time I took them out everyone laughed at me but then I shared them and everyone wanted more. So for the rest of the year when my mom made me latkes she would make enough for me to share with the class.

My aunt made sikhye for me when I was really little. Hers didn’t have any additives like ginger. It was just very plain and it had a particular flavor about it that I never tasted anywhere else. To this day, I would prefer it over almost any other drink if it didn’t take a decent amount of effort to make.

Güllaç: a Turkish desert that is thin layers of dough with nuts/pistachio in between and soaked with sugar & meat. Often has rose water as well.

For some reason it was very popular back at my collage and was served like once every week. Makes me mıss good old days

A specific tomato paste that my grandma used to spread on slice of bread along with butter. Sometimes we toasted bread as well. It was basically regular tomato paste with paprika, ground pepper, ground cumin and crushed walnuts and butter.

My grandma used to make that. RIP. She was calling it "goat cheese" for some reason. She was doing the same thing back when my mom was a kid. A fun story my mom told me, one day she asked for "goat cheese" when she visited a family member. They search hard and find goat cheese but of course it was not what my mom asked

I still prepare "goat cheese", it is pretty good with toasted bread

My ex was from Slovakia, so every holiday when her family got together we’d spend the day making pierogis.
We’d bang out like four to five hundred of the things, with 3-4 different stuffings. Afterwards her grandmother would package the leftovers for everyone to take dozens home.
I miss her family almost as much as her.

My mums homemade pizza and coleslaw - everything from scratch, loads of it, a really fresh light coleslaw, absolutely polar opposite of the gooey shite people push as "decadent" or whatever the current ad man cunt term is.

Good toppings too, beetroot & walnuts with scraps of blue cheese, onion and mushrooms with anchovies, and usually a plain one too. Base is ok, sauce is really rich and deep (she cooks it low and slow).

Shes cooked that for me through my anorexia, and all my other shit.

I've put her through a lot, but that meal has been on the table, once weekly, most of life. It's like a culinary anchor in all the shite of this clown world.
