There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

How Sweet It Is

Mom loves everything sweet . The sweeter the better. Well, she has been eating eggs for me since her eye surgery which she has not done in months. But she still makes a face every bite. So I found some recipes for egg pudding and egg custard. Can't believe I did not think of this before. She loves them and she is getting a lot of protein. Mom loves the egg pudding better then the custard but the recipe says it will cook in 40 Min's. No way!! It takes forever. And I cut the recipe in half. You just have to keep checking on it. Next time I am going to put it in a not so deep pan. I like the egg custard. It is tasty. Do not like all the butter so I have just been spraying the pan with butter flavor spray. Mom can't eat the crust that the butter makes anyway. Happy eating!

10 eggs
2 c. sugar
3 c. milk
1 tsp. nutmeg

Mix all together and place in a Pyrex deep bowl. Place in a pan of water and bake at 300 degrees for about 40 minutes. This recipe can be cut in half for smaller pudding.


4 large or 6 small eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 can evaporated milk
1 can water
1 stick butter (1/4 lb)

Combine everything except butter, mixing well. In a heavy bottom pan or double boiler, put melted butter in pan (coat the sides and bottom, then leave the remaining butter) and pour in mixture.
Bake at 350F until a thin knife inserted in center comes out clean. Shut oven off and open door, allowing the custard to cool without moving it.

May be topped with sprinkling of lightly toasted flaked coconut, or a fruit sauce, if desired, before serving. May be served warm or chilled.

Variation: A favorite flavoring can be added to the custard before baking, such as a teaspoon of good quality vanilla, a tablespoon of coconut rum, etc. The custard may be poured over a graham cracker crumb or pie shell made from a rolled sugar cookie dough.


  1. I wish your mom could sing you "How sweet it is to be loved by you." Your recipes sound delicious and such a creative solution.

  2. The egg custard sounds wonderful.

  3. thanks! I made the pudding last night. I raised the cooking temp 50 degrees and put it in a bigger pan. Wider not deeper and it came out perfect. I left out the nutmeg . It got hard in the last batch. I liked it would mom could not chew it. She liked this batch fine. It was nice and sweet.

  4. Sounds GREAT, Karen! I'm absolutely going to try this out!
