It’s so hard to diet when all of your friends are darn good cooks! “Let’s make a pie” says my bestie friend Susan over cocktails at her house. “Ok”, who am I to argue with someone who wants to give my drinks and dessert, right?

Lemon Meringue Pie…yummm!

I must say we whipped this beauty up pretty fast and it was very tasty:)

Here’s the link for the recipe  if your in the mood for pie too…Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie

While we were waiting to taste our creation, I flipped through a well used and loved recipe book she got when she was first married.

Susan is from the deep south of Alabama. Being from Oklahoma, I can appreciate the comfort foods this book had to offer, at least some of them. I’m not about to eat Brains or Fried Frog Legs but I will eat Fried Biscuits and Fried Okra:)

I came across this cute recipe for “Preserving” Children I thought you might enjoy.
