I don't bother nobody. I'm a real nice girl. Kind of laid back like a dead squirrel. Da ha, da ha, da ha ha ha ha. On a more serious note, I was born in Brooklyn, NY, then after nine years moved to Richmond,VA and lived there for thirty years. Lived in Fayetteville,NC for two and a half years. I lived in Savannah,GA for two years. I'm back in Richmond right now. I'm a recently divorced Christian BBW foodie concerned about human rights, ex-offender re-entry, recovery from all addiction, behavioral health,natural beauty,healthy living,etc. Right now I'm a caregiver,for the elderly,children and those with special needs and I am also trying to become a professional restaurant reviewer and blogger as well as looking for partners,investors & other resources to open a diner in the Bay Area of California or in Savannah Georgia

Does anyone have a recipe for sweet,spiced corn pudding that they are willing to share? Please, pretty please?

My dearly departed Auntie Gertrude Wray made the best corn pudding this side of the Mississippi River. It's was sweet sort of cinnamonny (yes I know cinnamonny is not a word, I'm taking credit for making it up LOL) , it might have had some vanilla flavoring or extract in it and maybe a hint of nutmeg. However, no one in our family got her recipe before she became ill and passed away. I have searched high and low but haven't found any recipe that give the dessert the flavor my auntie's pudding had, but this one from Allrecipes.com gets the sweetness and texture just right.
