There are many of us who grew up watching the women in our families cook - without recipes, with just 1 or 2 ingredients, making the little they had stretch to feed the entire household but at the same time, never compromising on taste. Their ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness made them the excellent cooks they were and continue to be.
Born out of that, we grew up eating certain things and certain dishes prepared a certain way and, as adults, these are the only ways, or our favourite ways, to have those foods or dishes. And that my friends, is the subject of this week's column - I Like It Like That - it refers to the way, I like to eat certain things because that's the way I grew up eating them.

In our home when I was growing up, chowmein was always served with steamed rice.
And whenever my mom was looking for a fast-food dish that was filling and satisfying, she turned to curried eggs.
Various recipes for Egg Curry can be found here, here, here, here, here and here. If you'd like mine, email me.
What are some of the foods/dishes you prepare today the same way you liked them while growing up?
