As I was growing up Mom always read the recipes in the newspaper food section and the magazines she received. Often, she read them aloud to me line by line which drove me batty. She had a huge collection of recipes on 3x5 cards kept in two large office-type files big as shoe boxes. Many of the recipes were written in her own beautiful, unique hand. Sadly, the boxes have been missing since my husband and I last moved. I still have hope they will show up in some box that went into the attic.
Anyway, now that I'm grown and Mom's gone, besides wishing she was here to drive me batty reading recipes aloud, guess what? I have my own collection of thousands of recipes from newspapers, magazines and the internet most of which I'll probably never try...kinda goofy, I know, but hey, it's a harmless hobby, right? Not to mention it's a way for me to remember my sweet mom. One of these days I might even get them all organized to some degree! I also have a collection of cookbooks which I read cover-to-cover like novels. I'm a sucker for the spiral-bound type especially and I love collections from churches, small communities, junior leagues and the like.
If you're wondering about my screen name nanpie, no I'm not a big pie maker. Nan is what my brothers, most of my other relatives and close friends call me. Pie is what my parents called me from the time I was tiny...it started out Punkin' Pie as a love name(Mom's gran called her Puddin' Pie) then evolved into Pie, Pie Pie, Nanny Pie and Pineapple all the time...except when I was in trouble. A modified mathematical pi sign has been my personal logo for many years. Even though I was in my late 30's, once my folks were gone I really missed having someone call me Pie(I should have had my nieces and nephew call me Aunt Pie, not Aunt Nan), so my sweet husband continues the tradition and I love him all the more for it.
Seafood of all sorts, rib-eye steak, fried chicken(with milk gravy, rice and peas), a really good grilled burger. Just about anything except brussel sprouts. Or clams...I'm allergic to them. I can't even eat anything that's been fried in the same oil as clams, so I have to be careful if they're are on the menu. Strangely enough (though thankfully), I can eat all other bi-valves and crustaceans...yummy!
Friends and family love my cheesecakes, salads, stuffing, soups and bunny shaped Easter bread. My hubby also loves my pesto, spaghetti sauce arribiata, pot roast and my peaunut butter cookies which he says are the best he's ever had. See recipe #313021 .
