Yummy! Old Fashioned Coconut Meringue Pie {Granny's Recipe}

Yummy! Old-fashioned Coconut Meringue Pie, just like Grandma used to make. Get the recipe for the perfect pie filling and a secret to keep the meringue from shrinking! Southern Coconut Meringue Pie Homemade Coconut Meringue Pie is a staple in the South.  The pie filling is a rich, creamy custard loaded with sweetened coconut poured into a flaky, prebaked pie crust, then piled with a luscious cloud of meringue and sprinkled generously with sweetened coconut. I found out this morning that today is National Pie Day . Not knowing this yesterday, I made a Coconut Meringue Pie and an  Old Fashioned Butterscotch Pie to take to our Life Group Meeting this evening. How cool is that!

Hot Sweet Pepper Relish and Spicy Pinto Beans

Hearty, flavorful Pinto Beans cooked with Mexican-style seasonings make a great side dish,  with cornbread and topped with hot sweet pepper relish! I just read or heard on a food show that it has long been said that pinto beans originated in San Antonio and some refer to them as "Cowboy Beans". I don't know all about that, all I remember is that my mother cooked a lot of them when I was growing up in the 60's, so delicious, and I never got tired of them! Many a time they were the main course on our dinner table with a pan of cornbread and Chow Chow.
