Mom's Best Recipes (PHOTOS)

With Mother's Day approaching, many of us have mom on the mind. Memories of our mothers are often dominated by food, especially if your mom was a spectacular cook. Maybe your mom made your favorite fried chicken every year for your birthday, a gigantic feast every Thanksgiving, or just the best brownies you've ever had. In a fitting Mother's Day tribute, we want to know what your mom's best dishes are.

We've been collecting our readers' best memories of their mothers' cooking from Facebook, Twitter and email, as you'll see below. We want you to get in on it, too.

Submit a description of your mom's best recipe in our slideshow below, and make sure your mom gets recognized -- you can't give a better Mother's Day gift than a public nod to her culinary skills.

"My mom raised my brothers and me on the Sicilian peasant food she grew up with while living in Sicily. As kids, we didn't realize that most of what we ate was pretty weird to our American peers -- rabbit, internal organs, pig's feet ... the list goes on! I chronicle these stories and experiences on my blog, Pomato Revival.

Her Sicilian Rabbit Stew is one of my favorites. It's a tomato-based sauce that explodes with Sicilian flavors: salty capers, green olives, celery, and the secret ingredient that makes it really pop: vinegar. It's a salty/sour combo that we loved as kids, and now that I'm a mom it's my favorite thing to share with family and friends. I especially love it since it speaks of the traditions and flavors of my mom's little Sicilian village, Favara."
