When I think back to my childhood, I remember a drink my mum would make us as a special treat. My parents were very strict with sugar intake so chocolate, sweets & fizzy drinks were a once-a-week delight to look forward to. As was this…
Coke mixed with milk!
And not any milk but gold top, full fat, milk. Mixed in equal portions and blitzed in the blender with ice! Delicious! The week would feel so long as I would be waiting anxiously for the days to pass and Sunday to arrive so I could indulge in this marvel of an invention. 😋
Funny thing is, I tried it a little while ago and couldn’t stomach it! In fact, it gave me a belly ache! The only difference between my recipe and my mum’s, was the milk used. Instead of gold top (which is hard to come by nowadays), I used blue top, could that make such a huge difference? Or is it the simple saying – nothing tastes as good as your mum’s cooking?
Another strange thing – my cooking tastes nothing like my mums! Even if I follow her recipes to a tee and considering I’ve learnt to cook from her, something is always different… Again, is it just mum’s cooking? Is the special ingredient – Mum’s LOVE?
What do you guys think? Do you believe your mother’s cooking is the best? Or can you match her in the kitchen?
Also, I would love to hear about any special recipes you remember from your childhood. Maybe it’s still your favourite or like me, maybe you can’t tolerate it anymore.
I look forward to hearing from you…
