Canadians--tell me your favourite recipe from Mom or Grandma

I am wondering what you all ate growing up, and if you have a recipe for it. I am interested to see what Canadians ate when they were children, and what ethnicities are represented.
I grew up Mennonite, so we had alot of sweet borscht, kielke and ham with cream gravy, and homemade chicken noodle soup.. YUM!

Kielke is a simple rolled dough cut into strips and boiled in salted water, then pan-fried Then thick ham slices were fried, and removed from the pan and we added heavy cream and lots of salt and pepper. We poured the cream gravu over the kielke and served it with fried ham.

The Chicken Noodle Soup is stilll something my father makes for me when I visit.
Homemade Chicken broth made with an old hen and water to cover. Salt, peppercorns, star anise and root parsley. Simmer. Remove the chicken, cut into bite size pieces (or shred it) and return to broth.
Homemade noodles thinly sliced and boiled in salted water.
They put the cooked noodles into a big bowl, pour the steaming hot broth over, and add butter.
So good.
