My Mom's Delicious Pecan Pie

"My mom had made this delicious pecan pie since I was a little girl. This recipe is posted in "The Cotton Country" cookbook by Mrs. Russel Bulloch. As odd that it is, I ended up working for her husband, the great Dr. Russell Bulloch, at Pediatric Associates. Hope you enjoy this great recipe as I have."

    I've been making this pie out of the Cotton Country cookbook forever. Loretta is right. It is a tried and true recipe and is delicious every time. Thanks for posting Loretta!!!


<p>I live in Louisiana and love all the southern foods. I love to fish, read, play pool, ride horses, and of course cook. I love to collect cookbooks of all kinds. This is one of many wonderful gifts that I got from my mom. <br /><br />My children are grown and my husband works off, therefore I cook for myself, my 2 dogs, Buddy and Missy, and my African Grey, Shady. <br /><br />I have 4 wonderful grandchildren,Haley, Mariah and Kodie Grace and finally a new grandson Tuff . <br />I enjoy trying new recipes and try them out on my family and friends. <br /><br />My health hasn't been good for awhile, so I have spent a lot of the time at home,not doing the things that I like to do. I am not one to sit or lay around. I haven't been able to stand for long periods of time and have been in a funk. I have just hopefully went through my last surgery and I can get back to walking, doing yard work and cooking for my family. I just can't wait to feel good about myself again and get myself back into shape. <br />I found it amazing how quick age slips up on you. <br />I am now going to enter some to the cooking contest again and I just can't wait. I can't believe the time that has passed since I was in the last cooking contest. I sure have missed it but I am back. Can't wait to catch up with all that I have missed... <br /><br />Glad to be in the Recipezaar family. <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
