Xnine, some things can never measure up to Mom; especially cooking. My Mother was the best cook in the world. 

She taught me but some things just weren’t the same. My son says the same thing about my cooking.lol.

Wow! xnine, you did great! I feel the same way about my Grandmothers recipes. Before she passed, I took her recipes and she translated them for me and I typed them on recipe cards (before computers) and put them in a photo album behind plastic. I would spend weeks helping her to make the thousand of cookies that she made every Christmas. I just think they taste better than mine because of the love she put in them. I make Kolooke every year and it taste like Hers but no where near as pretty!  
Maybe one day I will get better at it!

keep trying if yours is not exactly how you think it should be. Practice makes perfect and well as the scales going up!

Not just my mom but other people have given me their recipes and it never comes out the same. You think you have followed them all the way but not the same. Maybe it is the different brands of things you use or maybe they forget one little detail. LOL

I'm another who goes back to grandma.  Her molasses cookies were to be savored, but as many times as I've followed her recipe, it's still not the same thing.

Pumpkin was from the garden. Finally used it up. Picture does not show it all, made 8 pieces plus a bunch of pumpkin for the freezer.

  Great job xnine!

I know what you all mean. My mom is 92 now I tried years ago to ask her about recipes and she would say she never measured anything. A dash here and pinch of this.. ugh. It's lost I'm afraid. (Alzheimers).   ..mountain.

That is how my Grandmother did, a finger of this and that as well as a dash and a pinch. Frustrating but it actually makes sense if you don't have measuring spoons! Lol

I have tried to cook down raw pumpkin from the fruit and I just didn't have the patience for it, and it never came out with a smooth texture, like the Libby's canned pumpkin (squash).

Just give me a can of Libby's, and I'll take it from there with making the Libby's pumpkin pie recipe - with 150% of the spices!  : )

"First World" problems, ya' know?  LOL
