a retrospective: unfinished business. confections by me. consider: -so-called “wishing well cake,” modded with orange zest and glaze, and a flick of nutmeg (from a 1967 volume entitled “favorite recipes from southern kitchens: desserts, including party beverages”) -“my” banana pudding -karo syrup-less pecan pie with honey-cloved pecans baked into the crust (also from aforementioned volume—crust was my idea) -apple-pear caramel* pie with traditional lattice. the stem and leaf decor were consumed. *caramel was a disaster but made a lovely syrup. -gingernut and chocolate cinnamon meringue cookies. je n’ose pas waste the whites left from a custard. -divers breads (corn, yeast, biscuit) -special guest feature: mom’s sweet potato. best around, I’ve heard.
