I love living in the city and have my home have small town charm. Oh and I'm a Mongolian French Russian German Jew who grew up in Thailand.

Shoofly Pie V
I had an entire bottle of molasses expiring so I decided to make this pie. My step father is from PA, but said he disliked the pie when he had it there. BUT I made this recipe and I swear he ate half the pie! Very easy to make, quite tasty and although mine didn't look very much like the picture it was still good. I didn't know how to tell when the pie was 'done,' and figured when the goo started pouring over the edge I should take it out. It left the bottom part a little gooey, but I really like that. ALSO I made a graham cracker crust and it came out ten times better then the butter crust.

Milk Tart
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! As a person who has lived in South Africa, but now in the US I am so happy to come across this recipe. Tastes almost identical to what I used to get back in my high school days. Really great recipe and very easy to follow. THANK YOU once again.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
This is a really good base recipe. I made a few changes... I missread the recipe to begin with and only used 1 cup of sugar and I am glad I did! I added 1/2 tsp additional of the following nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, all spice and lemon juice. I subed the oil for applesauce and added a tsp of applesauce to the crumble as well as a tsp of cinnamon. I made a glaze to drizzle on top during the last five minutes of cooking out of 2 tbs half/half, 1 C confectionars sugar, 1 tbs butter, 1 tbs lemon juice and 1 tbs of applesauce. The glaze really makes this recipe POP! Thanks for sharing.
