Recipe for Teaching Teens

Becky Cooke

 

   Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching. Are you trying to keep on track to finish up some last assignments before taking time off to enjoy gathering your family together for a day of giving thanks? You may also be busy hunting down those favorite family recipes to add to your Thanksgiving feast. While looking, I have a recipe for you to help in teaching your teens. I am sure you will think of more ingredients to add, but let me help you get started.

- A cup of kindness

- A stick of joy

- Tablespoons of gentleness

- Squirts of affirmation

- A spoonful of sugar (which will make everything go down easier)

   Stir together with thankfulness and pour into a shell of love. Add a dollop of humor on the top before serving.

   Don’t know what to have for dessert this Thanksgiving? One of my family favorites is chocolate pecan pie.

1 unbaked 9” pie shell

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

¼ cup butter, melted

2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, melted

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup large pecan pieces

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Beat eggs in a large bowl; stir in sugar, corn syrup, combine melted butter, chocolate and vanilla; mix thoroughly but do not overbeat. Sprinkle pecans in prepared shell; slowly pour filling mixture over pecans.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Lower heat to 325 degrees and continue to bake until filling is puffed and set, about 45-50 minutes. Makes 1 pie.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Becky Cooke
