  • Episode 24: Judy Blume
    Feb 28 2024

    Bestselling children’s book author and literary legend Judy Blume takes us back to her childhood New Jersey kitchen in the ‘40s, where she ate lamb chops and baked potato scrapings as a baby. She also shares a precious memento: her mother’s little yellow recipe box, filled with complicated, mid-century dishes her mother never made. We’ll hear about Judy’s major sweet tooth, which is perfectly captured by the recipe she chose to share with us: her mother’s sweet noodle pudding.

    Judy Blume is a bestselling American author of children’s, young adult, and adult fiction novels. She’s written over 25 books which have sold over 80 million copies. She’s best known for her classic—and at the time controversial—children’s books, including Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.

  • Episode 23: Mark Cuban
    Feb 21 2024

    Mark Cuban—entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, fixture on the reality TV show Shark Tank, and born outsider—joins Michele this week. Mark shares how he acquired a do-what-needs-to-be-done attitude from his Jewish immigrant grandparents when he was a boy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, how he first tapped his entrepreneurial spirit by selling garbage bags to neighbors, and—ignoring the way things “should” be done—fast-forwarded his education to start achieving the financial success he’s known for today. But Mark never forgot his roots: He values family and hometown friends more than anything he can buy, and he especially loves his mother’s raisin noodle kugel, a recipe he happily shares with us.

makes me a podcast convert

I have not been a podcast listener in the past but this concept intrigued me. I have always thought that gathering around the kitchen table was child-rearing 101. Some of the most memorable moments of my childhood happened there. can't wait to hear other's thoughts.

Awesome, What a good time.

I saw a segment about this podcast on the CBS morning show so I went to audible and wow, talk about immediate gratification. What a incredible conversation, it was a time capsule of my life.

Add this to your podcast rotation!

Michele Norris on the mic is perfection. Great questions, great conversation. Your Momma’s Kitchen starts with a question that’s both simple and complex, and that opens the door to a thought-provoking journey. I learned something new Michele Obama, and wandered down memory lane thinking of my own mother’s kitchen. I can’t wait for the next episode.

Get Me to a Kitchen!

I loved listening to Michele Norris talk to José Andrés about his mama's kitchen! His descriptions were so vivid, and they sparked memories of my mama's kitchen. I LOVE roasted red peppers, and I can't wait to make the red pepper dish that his mother loved. Thank you for posting the recipe on Instagram! I look forward to catching up and listening to all of your previous podcasts. I love how Michele closed the podcast by proclaiming, "Be bountiful!" Amen! My mama always called our kitchen table her altar. There's sacred work, often messy, always imperfect, going on in all of our kitchens. Thank you for honoring the hot, hard, creative, nurturing work our mamas did in their kitchens. It mattered.
