    Okay I see I'm going to be the first one with a yummy recipie. Since Thansksgiving is upon us I will start with my Grandma's famous "Sweet Potato Pie"

    Here's a poem to start the recipie off!

    "It Always Smelled Like Cinnamon"

    It always
    Smelled like cinnamon
    A welcomed warm surprise,

    It always
    Smelled of nutmeg
    When grandma made her pies.

    Sweet sugared buns
    With frosted crumbs
    Floured prints upon her blouse,

    It always
    Smelled like cinnamon
    When we'd visit grandma's house.

    Autumn days
    Brought Autumn nights
    Light harvest winds would whisp,

    And right behind
    Her oven door
    The apple pies would crisp.

    Pumpkin patch
    In frosted dew
    Bring pleasure to the eyes,

    Yet it always
    Smelled like cinnamon
    When grandma made her pies.




    And now drum roll please..........


    " Sweet Potato Pie"

    2 eggs slightly beaten (not too much of course)
    1 large can of yummy Yams (added to the course)
    3/4 Cup of sugar (just enough to taste)
    1/2 Teaspoon of salt ( too much would be a waste.)
    1 Teaspoon Cinnamon (Like grandma in her pies.)
    1/2 Teaspoon Ginger ( That too is very wise.)
    1/4 Teaspoon of Cloves ( It takes no magic tricks.)
    1-2/3 Cups of light cream or milk. ( added to the mix.)



    Mix all ingredients together in the order they are given.
    Pour into a pie shell. Now that's what I call liven.
    Bake in preheated oven at 425 for 15 minutes, Then,
    Reduce the temp. to 350 and continue baking again.
    When 45 minutes have pasted, and time is ticking by,
    You'll know it's done when a fork is clean, when stuck into the pie.

    Take your prize out from the oven. and let it cool.
    garnish with whipped cream and eat!
    Take a bite it tastes like Pumpkin. Wow what a suprising treat!


    ENJOY!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Thank you so much Starry:

    Your comments are always a warm blanket to my heart.

    I love to cook and have quite a few recipies. especially desserts. I will add my chocolate chip cookie and fudge recipies for the Christmas season soon :)
    I can't wait to read some other dishes. I'd love to prepare what others' are cooking.


    Thanks again.

    Blessings

    i had to luv this canvas star... nothing like the nostalgic trip back down memory lane yeah. the synatax & alliteration was something spectacular. a few passages to quote.

    "It always
    Smelled like cinnamon
    A welcomed warm surprise,

    It always
    Smelled of nutmeg
    When grandma made her pies.

    Sweet sugared buns
    With frosted crumbs
    Floured prints upon her blouse,

    It always
    Smelled like cinnamon
    When we'd visit grandma's house..."

    How nice this is. I'm looking forward to fall. This poem gives me a gimps into the future. I'm floating over fall scenes drawn by the scents that warm my soul. What a lovely idea for a cookbook. I'll keep this for the holidays.

    Apparently you haven't read some of the recipes I've tried, lol. My sweet mom-in-law gave me her recipe for strawberry pie (my most favorite). Man that strawberry soup pie was fantastic, lmao She still has no idea how I could screw up such a simple, fool-proof recipe, lmao
