My cousin Linda was recently at the Salon for one of her maintenance appointments:)
during one of our many conversations,
I shared I was looking for a
Coconut Custard Pie Recipe..
Linda was quick to share she had
an old cookbook of her
Grandmother Kine's Family Recipes...
and among those recipes,
was a simple and yummmy recipe
Coconut Custard Pie,
which Linda swears is the best
North of Mississippi and along the entire East Coast...!!
I remember Grandmother Kline
being one of the sweetest ladies,
She simulated the true meaning of
Always had a treat for us and
a beautiful smile..
Linda's Grandparents lived in the house
directly beside her home,
The yards connected where we spent
summers under the big Apple Tree...
My visit would always include
a sneak away with Linda to
Grandpa and Grandma Kline's...
I cherish family recipes,
I was fortunate to have learned
most of my Grandmother's recipes
watching and helping my mother...
The only concern is,
most are not written down,
they are stored in my small brain...
I really must take the time some day to
journal them for future generations..
I occasionally get a call from my
brother, Mike in Texas asking for a certain
recipe or how this and that is prepared...
His usual response is...
"I think the kids will like it!?"
We both know your salivating for
one of mom's yummy meals or desserts..!!
I give my chuckle and gladly
recite the ingredients and directions...
