Most of our meals do not include dessert. We seldom have a dessert at home. Growing up my mama made mostly dish (or pan) cobblers when we had dessert. She bake anything, but cobblers were her style. Throw it in the Pyrex or pan, and get on with the rest of the meal.
‘Throw it together’, was her statement, and she could in just a few minutes, have something delicious smelling up the house. Mama’s flagship dessert was her well known ‘Sweet Potato Cobbler’, the best in the world. Oh, there was another favorite of mama’s, her egg Custards.
My daddy was border line diabetic. It never seemed to phase her to bake two of everything sweet, One with no sugar. We credited mama with keeping his ‘sugar’ under control and he did not require insulin shots.
Mama was one of the naturals, at cooking. If she was missing an ingredient, her thinking process allowed her to fill in for it.
(Sherry has been known to even split the layers and put more of the good stuff in double the layers)
Sherry can bake with the best, but a recipe is required. She does dump cakes, she seldom does the Red Waldorf ( red velvet) or German’s Chocolates anymore. She bakes a mean brownie or choc chip cookie for her grand kids.
Sherry has Black walnuts waiting, she is going to make a black walnut pie. I would rather eat veggies or meat than dessert, however, put out a banana pudding, or pecan pie and I will not pass it up.
Speaking of desserts, my favorite going out dessert is the Blizzard. Guess who eats blizzards?
Yep, the man himself, Warren Buffett, now I’d bet that guy does not print out the ‘Buy one, get one free' coupons from Dairy Queen.(It must be a Tropical)
WE have a lot of internet friends here who ‘REALLY BAKE’. You guys love to tempt my Sherry with the chocolate ones. ha! In the past one of Sherry’s favorite bought desserts was a choc creamed filled ‘Long John’, from a small local baker, called ‘ALEX’.
I know you have a favorite dessert, don’t you?
Thanks for coming by the log,
