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.

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.

Randy, heres one more article originally verbatum from NY Times last week.

Basically, non-extreme life changes can be as or more effective, compared to medications, per one of the best medical journals published.  Well researched, well reasoned.

The active ingredient in red rice yeast is the same as Lovastatin / mevacor, by the way.  Except, supplements are so poorly regulated it might not contain any.  Bummer.  Fish oil can lower triglycerides for some patients, Im not clear on whether thar matters. 

Comment by Randall Smith on December 13, 2016 at 8:13am

Thank you one and all! From all I've read and heard, statins are prescribed far too often (and it happened to me 15 years ago when my cholesteral reading was only 206! Side effects were muscle aches. I stopped.). I did start taking red yeast rice, and I currently eat flax and fish oil. Still, no change. Genetics?

Like I said, we'll wait and see what the doc says. One thing for certain, no statins ever again! Good information, Daniel.

Since I've found what I consider better doctors, I'm no longer taking any drugs that previous doctors had me on.  None for prostate, none for pre-diabetes, none for cholesterol, and none for allergies.  My symptoms and blood tests have improved in all these areas since I stopped taking drugs.
