My favorite dessert is Creme Brulee, so I quickly learned how to successfully make this on my own. Recently I was at a party where the guests finished off their own desserts "broiling" the sugar on their portions with a small torch. What a great idea! —Joylyn Trickel

Caramel Pudding

Caramel pudding was always a favorite in the family when I was growing up, now I enjoy making it for my family. My grandmother often cooked "from scratch", and she still does. As you can see from this recipe, it uses a good many "on-the-farm" products, which made this tasty treat even more enjoyable—we'd get to eat the fruits of our labor!

Squash Custard Pie

Squash Custard Pie

Meet the Cook: Acorn squash has been a favorite of mine since I was little and my mother baked it with sugar and cinnamon. This particular pie was something I improvised. We love pumpkin pie...but had fresh squash in excess. So I came up with this new variation! It's good to take to potlucks, to pie or cake walks at school - or to serve as a different dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We (my husband and I have a 10-year-old son) moved out to the country to get away from the crowds. Our home's on 15 acres. We're grazing a few cattle this year, and deer, wild pigs and an occasional skunk visit at night. -Mary Kelly, Hopland, California
