I experience some real joys from living in the country.

In the early morning, I can sit on my front porch in the solitude of nature. I enjoy the sights and sounds of the world coming awake, from the buzzing of the hummingbirds to the babbling of the nearby brook.  Often a momma deer and her newborn will come to the creek to drink or nibble on nearby foliage.

Truly, for me, the one downside is the limited quantity and quality of internet service in our area.  Our internet is supplied by satellite and I suppose that is better than none.  But when 10 family members converged on our homestead the first of the month our internet data allotment slipped away faster than ice cream melting on a hot Tennessee afternoon!  Our little 11-month old great-grandson Elijah was the only one who didn’t sport a data-devouring device!

I share this information simply to say … I haven’t had enough data to blog and share some of our fun summer recipes! This morning I got up at ‘O dark hundred and beat back the data gremlins to write for a few minutes!

Holiday Sweet Potato Pie

We buy a 40-pound box of sweet potatoes from a local farmer every fall. I cannot tell you the exact science behind why sweet potatoes direct from the farm tastes so much better than sweet potatoes from the grocery store … but trust me, they do!

We dine on sweet potatoes all winter long.  When I can’t think of a thing to fix for dinner I start with sweet potatoes and the rest just falls in place.

We were at our friend Maribeth and John’s house when she asked if I saw the sweet potato pie being made that day on Cook’s Country.  I don’t watch much TV and hadn’t seen it.  She went on to excitedly tell me how she knew we would “just love” this pie!  Before I got home that evening I knew I had to make that pie.  (You can get me excited about recipes just that easy!)

When the words vanilla, cheesecake and pecan are all run together ending in pie I cannot help myself.  I cannot resist.  I head to the kitchen, sort out the ingredients and begin the fun of mixing and blending while imaging just how good this is going to taste!

Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Pizookie

When some of our California kids were here this summer the dinner conversation turned to Pizookies.  At first when my step-son Bryan said Pizookie I wasn’t sure what I heard him say.  I said, “will you spell that for me?”  He did one better and Googled it for me.  This is a pizza cookie all rolled into one single serving baking dish.  He and our grandson Sean went on to poetically describe one of their favorite desserts from BJ’s Restaurant.

The more they talked the more exacted they got.  They tossed around words like chocked full of chocolate chips, warm and gooey, topped with quickly melting vanilla ice cream, deep dish cookie, served warm from the oven.
