For every time our mothers bandaged our knobby knees, put up with our worst tantrums, and let us have that last piece of pie—even when she really wanted it—we'd like to say "thank you." This year, like every year, we get to celebrate the women who raised us, and what better a way to honor them than by cooking their recipes (and letting them have the last bite)? Here are 7 recipes inspired by the women who raised us—the aunts, grandmas, and like-a-second-mother-mothers:
