These are recipes for simple, easy, homemade dishes. I make no promises about portion size or fat content, etc., but they are dishes that I have prepared and liked. I don't post pictures because I don't have fabulous lighting, nor a great camera. I can promise that I haven't just made things up without trying the recipe and this is all stuff other people have tried and no one spit anything out in disgust. Not yet, anyway! I don't take cool supporting photos of the steps along the way (but wait, are you telling me you are going to cook those nuts in the microwave in that METAL bowl?) but these are real recipes that a regular cook/baker should be able to figure out. I love the work of Deb at Smitten Kitchen - she provides the whole package!!! Good food, witty comments and lovely photos. If you want to see a REAL food blog, check her out.

Shoofly Pie

There are wet versions and dry versions of this pie.  The wet is rather like pecan pie without the pecans.  The dry is almost like a coffeecake in a crust.  This version is somewhere between.

1 c flour
3/4 c brown sugar
2 T butter, softened
1 egg
1 c molasses
1 t baking soda
3/4 c boiling water

Mix the flour and sugar.  Mix in the butter well.  Reserve 2/3 c for the top.  To the rest, add the rest of the ingredients.  Pour into a pie shell and sprinkle the reserved crumbs on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes or until firm and gold.
