As the saying goes, some of the best things come from the worst places: in the case of one Reddit user, it’s a recipe passed down from a fiercely hateful great-grandmother, as detailed in a Reddit post.
*This is a work of non-fiction sourced from social media discussion boards and verified experts/specialists.*
The author begins by explaining that her great-grandmother in question was "mean as hell all the time,". The author explains:
“My great-grandmother was the most racist, hateful, and disgusting person I have ever met. She was mean as hell all the time, always had to have the best in everything, and treated us poorly for stupid reasons. This evil woman died because she would not accept a blood transfusion in case it had a black person's blood in it. She was homophobic, greedy, spiteful, and told my mother about me and I quote, "If that girl doesn't get her life together she's gonna end up dating one of those brown boys." If she gave me any gifts, they were cheap, and fell apart, but my brother, she would spend like 200$ on.”
Despite the fact that the great-grandmother was so vile, she did have one thing going for her. The author continues:
"With that being said, she had the best mocha cheesecake recipe ever. She swore she was taking it to her grave. This recipe was fantastic, I LOVE it. But she would never share it with us. Recently, my mom found an email that she didn't know about. My grandpa (GG's son) snuck the recipe to us through email before he died, knowing full well that GG wouldn't give it to us. Now, I'm trying to give the recipe to anyone and everyone who wants it, ESPECIALLY the "people my great-grandmother hated".”
The author is doing all she can to get the last laugh when it comes to her great-grandmother, as she concludes with:
“I have asked my girlfriend to make the mocha cheesecake for me, and will be posting the recipe on TikTok too. My mom posted it on Facebook. I hope that woman rolls in her grave knowing that the only good thing to come from her was cheesecake, and that when she tried to be greedy and refuse it to us even then, that now all the people she most hated will be enjoying it with immense satisfaction.”
What do you think?
Is the author justified to take his great-grandmother’s precious cheesecake recipe and share it with the world, all to spite the old woman who hated everyone?
Or is the author making a mockery of her family member’s legacy by taking her secret recipe and spreading it to anyone she can?
