What does mom’s cooking mean to you?
To me, the quintessential smell of home is a juicy beef roast that’s been slowly cooking all day, filling the house with that unmistakable aroma. Or what we called Norwegian meatballs. Plump, flavorful meatballs would sit in a cream sauce for hours. We’d eat them with potatoes.
When I was looking for some home cooking recently, and actually bringing my mom along, we headed to Mom’s Diner in Fargo.
