I love looking though them searching for familiar, or new recipes by names new, old, familiar and not. This cookbook has a lot of Mommom's recipes in it, and I felt much obliged to share one with you all. Mommom was James' grandmother, she a classy lady, full of wisdom, forgiveness, faith, patience, compassion, family love and just enough attitude to always give you a good chuckle.
Here's a couple of my favorite pics of Mommom
This pie was pretty dang good. Everyone at Sunday supper last week gave it a thumbs up!
Mommom actually titles this pie as "Dang Good Pie" in her entry! I googled "pineapple and coconut pie" and a lot of entries came up, even one link said "this is in every church cookbook I own". So it doesn't really appear to have a name. So call it what you will, just as long as you make it with love.
