The Heirloom Recipe Index exists to make your Grandma (or great uncle, or second cousin on your mother's side) a superstar and preserve their kitchen legacy.

Some recipes are saved for special occasions; others are saved for a certain season; and then, there are some that you cook up just because.

This is one of those.

Kathy and her sister grew up as bowl lickers: a childhood memory and privilege that is never forgotten. "You'll get a stomachache," becomes a mother's mute warning as a tubby toddler finger plunges into the batter for another gooey bite.

Growing up, Kathy spent many a weekend this way: in the kitchen making "Picnickers" with her mother and sister.

Calling all Tony Bourdain fans: have a question on the back burner for the bad-boy chef, food writer and television host?

Consider this your special du jour.

Anthony Bourdain will appear on Friday's episode of CNN's Connect the World to talk about his new book, "Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook," and offer up his opinionated, oftentimes profanity-ridden commentary on all things culinary.

The show is soliciting questions from viewers - so go on, ask away.
