    @balanc41 - enjoy your day off!
    @AliNouveau - very cool hair:)

    Have a great day, all :*

    Haha it's a filter. But now I'm wondering if I should break my rule of crazy hair colours cause this looks kinda fun

    So I use corn syrup in my butter tarts, similar to pecan pie, and the cookies I made this weekend called for corn syrup too. I always feel guilty using it but really we all probably grew up with it in everything and we turned out ok

    Morning all!! Agreed that corn syrup is the devil, but I'm still alive sooooo *shrugs*. Something's going to kill me, might as well be that.
    @AliNouveau that filter looks super cute, love the pic!!!
    @forestfreek I can only eat Kale in a casserole and broccoli with cheeese, so not sure I'm getting the true benefits of either one

    Fun fact I actually had red hair for high school graduation haha. Decided this was something I wanted to do....haven't since

    Ugh kale. It's so popular these days I just can't get into it. Broccoli I love, Brussel sprouts too but kale.... nope

    Good morning! I'm not a native southerner, but I don't think the original pecan pies even have corn syrup in them. Isn't that bottled corn syrup better than the high fructose that is in everything anyway, though? I'll give you a southern recipe that I use when I make it at home. ( Pecan pie is my favorite dessert in the world!:D)

    A little blurry, but these are from a 1951 North Carolina cookbook. :)

    Pecan Pie is an art. You mess anything up and it turns into a watery mess, soggy crust. I've tried and tried and tried. :p

    Yellow sugar. I guess it really is yellow though
    Btw that looks like an awesome book I love old ones like that. My mom has a Mennonite one from her mom, it has instructions for food for a barn raising. I love flipping through it

    BTW, pecan pie is more of an American thing but I've definitely had it. Sooo so good. I found a Reddit group this morning called old_recipes. Sometimes the oldies are the best.

    Anyone doing anything fun?

    I don't know what yellow sugar is, but I usually use the light brown sugar and a little maple syrup. That Mennonite cookbook sounds great! I was doing some research when the pandemic started, and found out some of my ancestors were Mennonites from Switzerland, haha! :)

    Hi, I'm Jason. I turn 54 2 weeks from now. Yay, Team Scorpio. I'm more in maintenance mode though I could stand to lose about 5-10 more pounds and gain a bit more muscle. Please feel free to add me.

    Sometimes brown sugar here is called golden brown so I guess it's light brown sugar.

    That's neat about your ancestors. Always fun to find something like that out
