fantastic old pictures, the style is scary and it looks hardly edible! Great pics!

Some fine foods for your Christmas table! 

Yum yum yum!

I try to use Stevia as a sugar substitute as much as I can. Of course, nothing beats the taste of brown sugar. I estimate a tsp. of Stevia is the equivalant of 1/4 cup sugar. Works for me.

And I made a sweet potato pie yesterday! With pecans. No photo because it looks sloppy, crust-wise. Since I'm the only one looking at and eating it, I don't try very hard at being perfect.

I almost always reduce sugar, often by 1/3 to 1/2.  I didnt this time.  Probably next time.  We had this in honor if my Southern ancestors.  For the inber German, I dont know.  Maybe some mors potato sslad.

Yes, I've never liked as much sweetening as most other people.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 19, 2016 at 2:00pm

Qiana, I think I would like your pies better than the ones I've tasted.  They have such a strong flavor (I think mostly due to the amount of sugar), that I can only eat a small piece at a time.

Looks great, Daniel.  Would you believe I've never had pecan pie?  It's true!

Well then Randy, still plenty of time to look forward to a great trip!

Yesterday I embraced my inner Southerner and baked a Pecan Pie.  Southern food is not known for being health food.  Once a year it's OK.  The recipe was from my mother's cousin, Pearl.

Pecan Pie

Pastry for 9 inch pie. I used butter crust.

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup light corn syrup

½ tsp salt

3 eggs

1 cup pecan halves

Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients. Stir in pecans. Pour mixture into pie crust. Cover exposed crust edge with aluminum foil so it dues not over-cook. Bake until set 40-50 min.

Sad to say, I'm not yet in Italy, Daniel!  You gotta put up with me 'til April!

Comment by Daniel W on December 18, 2016 at 11:16am

Hope Randy is having a great time in Italy!  Italy has some of the best food in the world, if not THE best food.  Im supposed to be loyal to Chinese food, being married to someone Chinese, and that is also awesome, but Italian food is wonderful.  Even the street food.

Info on Cuisinart blade recall.  NPR  Maybe no one else has a Cuisinart, but there are millions of them across the USA.   You may know someone with one.  We use it for pureed soups, puree pumpkin, some pasta doughs, processing pumpkin and squash for freezing, and tomato sauce. 

Pieces of the blade chip off and lodge in the food, causing chipped teeth and mouth mucosal lacerations.  I forget the number about 30 known injuries reported of 8 million units sold.

It's really easy to exchange your blade.  Go to Cuisinart recall website, find the model # on the bottom of your machine, and answer the questions on the website.  It's free and easy.  Checked the model number on our old Cuisinart food processor. It is one that requires blade replacement in the big recall. The problem is that small pieces of metal break off and eating food with those pieces of metal can cause chipped teeth and mouth lacerations. Very easy to fill out the form on line for a new blade, and old one can be discarded.
