There are some recipes that make me miss my mom, and this homemade egg noodle recipe is definitely one of them. My mom made these noodles several times a year, sometimes more often.

She always made them after thanksgiving when she would make Chinena (a polish sweet and sour soup) made with the leftover turkey. Always, we never went a thanksgiving without the turkey carcass turned into either turkey soup or Chinena and the homemade noodles were a must. Ah, memories.
When we were kids, I think that she had to quadruple this recipe, maybe even more. She had this big yellow bowl that she would fill to the rim with noodles. She would put the soup on the stove to cook and spend half the day making noodles for the whole family. With 5 brothers and sisters, that was a lot of soup and a lot of noodles.
So, now that my mom has passed, I now try to make these at least once a year. I still don’t know where my mom got all her energy to make so many noodles. I remember watching her cut the noodles and I was in awe that she could cut them so quick and so fast. I’m learning, but I’m no where near the expert she was.
Believe it or not, these really are easy to make. The only way to mess them up is to add too much flour (if you do, just add a little water).
