Writer's Block: Get in my belly

What is your mother’s specialty dish? In other words, what food makes you salivate at the thought of it?

My all-time favorite food since I was little is beef stroganoff over rice.  Or rather, a very specific recipe for stroganoff.  I'm not sure whether my mother got this recipe from my grandfather, or vice-versa; I got it from my grandfather.  The recipe probably originally called for cream of mushroom soup, which would be more traditional, but apparently someone along the line didn't like mushrooms and changed it to cream of chicken.  I prefer it that way.

Beef Stroganoff

1 lb hamburger 1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 onion, chopped 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 stick butter 1 10-3/4 oz can condensed
2 tbs flour      cream of chicken soup
1 tsp salt 1 cup sour cream

Brown hamburger and onion in a skillet.  Drain fat and add butter.  Stir and add flour, salt, pepper and garlic.  Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add chicken soup, and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add sour cream and heat until warm.  Serve over rice, noodles, or toast.
