10 Recipes Inspired By Famous TV Grandmas
We may not love them as much as our own grandmas, but these grannies are pretty great!
Marie was used to cooking Italian dinners, like this traditional lasagna, practically every night of the week for husband, Frank, and son, Robert. Of course, she’d make sure Ray got an extra piece and omit the secret ingredient when sharing the recipe with Debra.
With her wit and sharp one-liners, we can’t help but love the Dowager Countess. We bet you could find her enjoying some blueberry scones with her granddaughters at an afternoon tea.
Granny sure made some wacky dinners in her day, from roast possum to catfish and apricot gumbo soup. Our blackened catfish might be a bit more appetizing.
Gloria is proud of her Columbian heritage and has a collection of treasured family recipes. Perhaps most famous is her salsa, which was passed down from her great aunt. It’s so good, she decides to start selling it at the farmers market. While we don’t have her recipe, we’d totally buy this spicy salsa at a farmers market.

Prim and proper Emily Gilmore has hosted many Friday night dinners for her daughter and granddaughter, Lorelai and Rory, serving elegant roasts similar to this peppercorn beef roast.
Cozy comfort food like swiss steak is what Edith used to make for husband, Archie. Mmm…wish we could have a bite right now.
Endora is another bewitching grandma, though perhaps not to son-in-law, Darrin. She may not have green fingers like these witches’ fingers, but they remind us of her all the same.
