Sweet Potato Pie I
I've been using this recipe for nearly ten years. I've made several versions over the years. My favorite is to substitute the milk with heavy cream (in the carton). For the sugar, I use half white sugar, half brown sugar and I add a teaspoon of brandy (my preference) or rum (if I don't have any brandy), and a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. I usually make about four pies every time because friends steal whole pies when I make them. Tip: To avoid stringiness of sweet potatoes, use a hand mixer, and remove the strings on the beaters and discard. I usually add an extra small sweet potato to the recipe to compensate for the stringy potato I will discard from the beaters. I hate strings in my pies.

Southern Pimento Cheese
Great recipe. I was hesitant to use extra sharp cheese because its so strong by itself. But once I made it, I was glad I had. The extra sharp cheese adds zing. It would've been bland without it. I didn't change a thing, made as directed. Will make grilled sandwiches and tea sandwiches with it.

Italian Pasta Salad I
Great starter recipe. You can add anything basically to this recipe. I added cucumbers, capers, yellow bell peppers, mushrooms and artichoke hearts. It was a crowd pleaser, especially for the vegetarians at our get together. Very important to make sure to chill ahead so the flavors mesh.
