I had been wanting to make homemade granola. So a couple of weeks ago, I poked around the Internet to get the basics for making granola, and then I used what I had in the house to develop my real-food spin on this breakfast cereal. I didn't have enough oats, so I used a combination of quinoa and oats. If you don't have quinoa, just use all Irish oats, but soak your oats in coconut milk and whey or yogurt instead of just water for a more coconut-y taste. A word of caution: This recipe is definitely not sweet, even with the addition of the chocolate chips.

This is a family recipe that my mother and grandmother used when I was growing up. I have used it with my culinary arts students at North Hagerstown High School. Usually, we prepare this recipe around Easter when the students prepare boxes of candies for their family and friends. They make chocolate-covered peanut butter balls as well as molded chocolates with this recipe of Quick and Easy Fudge. The students are thrilled when they are able to make fudge so easily, and they also like how wonderful it tastes.

My paternal grandmother was a well-known cook, baker and hostess among family, friends and church circles. In addition to her culinary expertise, she knew every rule of etiquette and table-setting. One of her specialties was pumpkin pie. Having no daughters, she gave her recipe to my mother, who passed it on to me. With its mild flavor and creamy texture, this pie is now a favorite in my own family. It's easy, too. - Linda Baker, member of the hand bell choir at Otterbein United Methodist Church in downtown Hagerstown Elizabeth Butler's pumpkin pie 1 3/4 cups pumpkin Scant teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon ginger 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup sugar 2 eggs, beaten 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 1/2 cups milk 9-inch pie shell Heat oven to 450 degrees.
