"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom made pumpkin pies every Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. She used the same recipe for cushaw pie, which tastes very similar. Cushaw is a squash, and Mom preferred it to pumpkin. Grandma Buchanan used to raise them, and she would give one to Mom for her holiday pie making.
