I made a pumpkin chiffon pie last night and set the table.
Dede's yam casserole was the best. I always made yams with apples, which no one ever ate, so why did I continue making it?
THE NEW YORK TIMES listed the most recipes searched on the internet for each state. Number 1 in Utah was funeral potatoes. No surprise there. Lots of Midwestern states liked their Snicker salads. Is that really a salad? Isn't it simply the first dessert? If a salad can be made with Snickers bars than we ought to classify pumpkin pie as a serving of fruit. That brings up the question of whether a yam is a vegetable if it is covered with melted marshmallows?
The truth is I love all that sugar.
