  1. This is one of my dishes that doesn't have a recipe but goes by the way I'm feeling and tasting that day. Folks like it enough that it's asked for in advance of a scheduled dinner/holiday. It was created by my love of the sweet potatoe pie my best friend from childhood (actually the woman my mother engaged to clean house and watch over me) would make as a special treat for the family. She also got me started on a life-long love of cookery by allowing me to watch and then help her as she prepared the familiy's meals. Some of the best foods are the ones made from the heart instead of a recipe...
