2. Macaroni and Cheese Like Mama Made
In this post, Pam said, "My own Mama had lots of specialties, and Macaroni and Cheese was one of my personal favorites. I watched her make it countless times, but I never asked her how she did it, or why she made it the way she did. She’s gone now, and I hope this post will inspire you to ask your Mamas about their dishes while you can." After years of failed attempts, we finally figured out the secret of Mama's macaroni and shared it with our readers.

Tomato Gravy is one that is so simple that it can hardly be called a recipe, but something magical happened when people came across it on Biscuits & Burlap. Memories came flooding back about how their Mamas used to make tomato gravy. They remembered how and when it was served. They told stories of serving it to their own families or made plans to introduce their kids to the traditional dish. I guess it's plain to see why it became one of our most popular recipes.
