  1. WOW! What a yummy Southern Tomato Pie, Emz. Loved it! Can't wait for summer 'maters to make again.
  2. This looked stunning as a main dish, and the amount of onions and seasonings was perfect. The pie was tasty, but a little oily for our tastes. I think that with this quantity of cheese, we would prefer it without the mayonnaise (an ingredient I have never used in a baked recipe before). For the pastry shell, I used Chef #286566's Recipe #177343, which was excellent. Reviewed for Pick A Chef, Fall 2007


<p>Thanks for taking the time to stop by My Page! I am married to a quiet, but fun loving guy who cleans up the kitchen!! I have grandchildren who I adore. I am retired from being a paralegal and a real estate agent. I have also been a substitute teacher for the elementary grades in the public school system. All of my recipes are the tried and true type. Many of them have come from my 48 years of cooking, my mother's recipe box or other relatives. I like Taste of Home magazine and I am a big fan of foodnetworkTV. I am a southern girl and enjoy comfort foods!!! I am a big cookbook collector and have been for years. I enjoy baking desserts most of all. I also enjoy games on my laptop, growing flowers, lunches with friends, babysitting grandchildren, photography and traveling. Since life is so short I try to count my blessings each day and give to the less fortunate. I had gotten into a rut on what to cook. Therefore, I am so happy I found the Recipezaar site. Pet Peeve: People with a negative attitude. MY RATING SYSTEM: 5 stars - Excellent in taste. May have minor change. 4 stars - Adjustment in ingredients for flavor. 3 stars - Fair, but not sure whether I would repeat. 2 and 1 stars - I do NOT give.
