Recipe Spotlight

One of the nice things about this easy pudding is you don't have to stand and stir it. It's a must for us at Christmas—at Thanksgiving and Easter, too! I also make it into a pie with graham cracker crust that our grandchildren love. The home my husband and I moved into 11 years ago is unusual. We're retired farmers, and it's built from knotty pine—out of an old barn and hog house! The inside is wood. Donald, who enjoys woodworking, refinished the boards.

I don't remember where or how I found this dessert. When I took it to a family reunion many years ago, however, a great-uncle was sure I'd used my great-grandmother's recipe! Church suppers are among the places I've carried my rice custard. At home, I like to have it warm for dinner. Then, the next morning, I'll frequently enjoy the leftovers cold for my breakfast. This dish is one I've been making for nearly as long as I've been married—and that's 42 years. My husband and I were true childhood sweethearts (I have known him since I was 3-1/2!). We have a daughter and two grandchildren. They live 15 minutes away, and they're the center of our life.

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.

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. —Mary Kelly, Hopland, California
