When I was planning my turducken menu a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to serve a autumn-ish dessert.
Urbana resident Patty Smith sent me this recipe for Chocolate Cream Pie, an updated version of her Grandma Jo's.
"I remember it as always being a special treat at Thanksgiving," Smith wrote in her email. "How (did) she ever had time to do everything, plus make this pie?"
Farmer City resident Karen Wisegarver sent me this delicious-looking recipe, which she originally got from Mr. Food. She said it's a great alternative to a standard green-bean casserole.
