Old "yuumy" favorites
I was listening to a talk show CFRB (Toronto), the discussion was about what do you remember as a favorite yummy food that your mother used to make or buy when you were a kid, it could be baked good or a meal. (The mothers called in too saying what they used to make that the kids loved). One person called in saying his mother used to make rice crispie squares with cheeze whiz spread on top, (yuk), another one said they loved a peanut buttery/jam/ banana loaf.
What I remember was sometimes when my mother went downtown, she would come back with this pie/cake from Kresgies or Woolworth's, she said they called it Boston Cream Pie, but it wasn't a true Boston Cream, it had no chocolate. It was to die for, melt in your mouth and light as a feather. It was like a light sponge cake with a light whipped cream in between & on top, (I think). I'd love to make one if I knew what was in it. Does anyone remember ever having this kind of pie/cake?
What were some of your favorites as kid in Verdun? Another favorite of mine was Hamburger Roll-ups.
Have a yummy day !
