Carrot Ring and a Mother’s Day TributeIn honor of Mother’s Day, I made one of my favorite childhood recipes, carrot ring. It’s a savory side dish that my mother served for many holidays. The texture is almost cake-like, but it’s not too sweet. As a child, I looked forward to holidays because I wanted to play with my cousins and couldn’t wait to enjoy a slice of carrot ring. In addition to the carrot ring, my mother made many other fabulous dishes. She was an accomplished home cook who loved to entertain and cook homemade food for the family dinner table. Her cooking is legendary among family and friends who still like to reminisce about their favorite dishes that she made. Many recipes are like the carrot ring, old-school 1960′s and 1970′s cooking. My mother was a product of her generation, and she had her share of recipes made with convenience ingredients such as ketchup, ginger snaps, Lipton onion soup mix, Knorr soup mix, and jello. Today I may scoff at the processed ingredients, but I tell you that these dishes would still taste amazing even today. In later years, my mother grew adventurous in the kitchen and learned some Italian and Chinese cooking. She could whip up fresh, seasonal ingredients into tasty pastas and stir-fries. I marveled at how she could do this without using a recipe and without measuring. Her fresh food cooking was ahead of her time in America. I get my inspiration in the kitchen from my mother.
