We all have fuzzy memories of our favourite childhood foods and the exact ways our parents made them: From Jell-o fruit salad to pigs in a blanket, even thinking about these foods sends our memories racing back to a simpler time.

Will their kids love them as much as they did? Do their versions taste as good as Mom’s did? Let's find out!
