I make a killer pecan pie. Got the recipe from an old cookbook called someting like "Cook like a peasant, eat like a king"
I haven't mastered making my own pie crusts yet, but I have a recipe book from my late Grandmother that has a recipe for crusts in it that I'll probably attempt when I return from deployment. (Will have frozen crusts on hand in the freezer just in case it doesn't work out!
Interested in sharing the recipe? I don't like pecan pie myself, but it's always a family request at Thanksgiving!
I usually enjoy cooking, especially for others. It's a great creative outlet.
