Apologiesā€¦.

I feel incredibly guilty for having neglected my blog for so many months. Summer came and I just didn’t know how to act. I haven’t been documenting my cooking experiments and I definitely having been scoping the cookbooks for new projects to entertain. Honestly, I’ve been cheating on my blog with a newfound love– Yelping. Terrible, yes I know.

So even though I haven’t been cooking, I definitely have been eating. And I’ve been documenting many of these ventures through Yelp reviews but I do have some photos collected from over the past few months to share.

I WILL BE MAKING A GLORIOUS COMEBACK VERY SOON! In the meantimeā€¦ENJOY!

A Piece of the Pie

First things first– Let it be known that my grandmother, Dorothy M. Walker, is the undisputed sweet potato pie baking champion! I only hope to be able to recreate her greatness one day. While I have tried, I just felt like something was missing and I have a theory of what it might have been. You see, she is an old school cook. She finds no use for recipes and cookbooks. Granny bakes solely off of instinct and intuition whereas I need directions for EVERYTHING! I guess you could say my cooking lacks confidence! So until I watch her make sweet potato pie 50 more times and learn the recipe, I’ll stick to my cook books!

Seeing as how my granny is an original Southern Belle, I decide that this southern book would be appropriate for the occasion.Ā 

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups evaporated milk

2 eggs, beaten well

1 1/2 cups mashed, cooked sweet potatoes

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

You can follow the directions atĀ http://books.google.com/books?id=BkRvhbmZ5QMC&printsec=frontcover&dq=pie+recipes&hl=en&sa=X&ei=XmHJUJDnN5GM0QHRy4GwCg&sqi=2&ved=0CEAQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=sweet%20potato&f=false

I omitted the cinnamon because I know my grandmother does not use it. For whatever reason she dislikes cinnamon. However, everything looks and sounds familiar so I give it a go. And here’s what it looks likeā€¦.
