Pecan Praline

2. # 4 Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

This was my Aunt Pat’s best dish, so good she even sold them for the holidays but her orders got so big she was once up till 3 am cooking and after that night she vowed to never do that again. Sweet potato pie ingredients are mostly the same but it’s about how much you add that can take your pie from good to great. Check out the Mississippi Sweet potato pie recipe on

3. # 3 Pound Cake

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

You can tell when this cake is cooked right because it really does weigh a pound. There are only about 5 major ingredients for this cake and it can be whipped up fast but when you taste it you’ll think it took the cook hours to prepare. I think this cake takes years to master because as a child whenever we would visit a senior citizen’s house they would always have this cake and it was awesome.

4. # 2 Banana Pudding

Banana Pudding

This dessert takes time but when it’s done right as they say the proof is in the pudding. If you use jello pudding in your recipe that’s just ok but when you use that carnation milk in the can and stir it over the stove for about an hour you will taste all the goodness this dish has to offer.
