Photographing for "Loving Aunt Ruth" turned out to be delicious and somewhat fattening.  Well worth the pounds!  Aunt Ruth is a marvelous cook with a recipe collection.  Yes, these are her cards lovingly protected in plastic, because she either cooked for friends, a temple function, or was being asked for one of her ingredients by her devoted family.  She has been on countless charitable cookbook committees and served her family wonderful meals for more than 70 years.  She culled newspapers and tested recipes and gave them all ratings!  

But, that isn't why I am writing today's blog.  It is to remind you to ask for recipes from people you love or even like as a way of gathering data that will keep people close to your heart!  they will tether you to your past in ways that will keep traditions, laughter, and love as close as your oven.

If you leave us a comment with your email, we will send you a recipe!

Here's a recipe from the above collection that Aunt Ruth marked as "very good."  Let us know if you agree!

Corn Pudding
12 oz vacuum packed can of corn
3T flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk or non dairy creamer
1T vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
4T melted butter

Combine all ingredients in the order listed making sure to stir the mixture while add the hot, melted butter.

Pur into a 1 1/2 qt. casserole and bake at 425 for 35 minutes or until golden.

Aunt Ruth says that it serves 4 if you're lucky.  If you double the recipe, she asks that you remember to increase the baking time...maybe even up to an hour.

Invite some friends.  Take it to friends....Enjoy!
