|Nicely done Rose, timely too. I don't bake, but I certainly remember those wonderful smells coming from the kitchen back in the days when my mom did, then in later years, when my wife did and just the other day when my sweetie did. Fond memories, this piece brings back. Thanks Dick.|

|She may be up in Heaven,
But she watches down from up above,
I remember the main ingredient she'd say,
Don’t forget my darling, to add a little love.
Your loving memories bring back vivid ones for me as well, Rose. Coincidentally, today would be my mom's birthday although she chose to leave this world/life many years ago. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes,

|Dear Rose, Your wonderful poem inspires all of us. I believe that our mothers are made from similar mold.
I recall too, when my mom taught my wife to cook what she knew were my preferred dishes, she used to tell the same words. A nip of this and a nip of that it will be fine.
Rose, you are also a good mom just pass on to the young generation the spices entwined with love.

|Perfect, Rose. My mother-in-law still refers to browning, ancient pages of her mother's hand-written recipe book when she bakes each and every weekend... now I know why she will never cook from memory! Love, as you say, is the ingredient that builds in the goodness and the joy. Lovely, bless you. xx|

|As a man, and not one inclined to create culinary art, I so remember my mother's cooking, then passed and adopted by my wife, but she's gone now and along with her that that I so loved at this or most any time of year. Very well written, my Newfie lady.
Your friend, Mark

|Probably one of the best Christmas poems I've read and wasn't that the central part of Christ's Birth-Love one another as He loved us? Best ingredient we can add to this Christmas celebration. Marvelous poem.
