“Santa came early to our house and brought me a Kitchen Aid stand mixer,” said Christy Carr Scribner, of Eupora and formerly of Bruce. “It has a pasta maker, ice cream maker and meat grinder and we will have a lot of fun with it.”

Her first plans are for Oreo ice cream. And she loves Italian, so some pasta shouldn’t be far behind. She also has a Kitchen Aid recipe board on Pinterest, and added that she has “tons of boards.”
She loves Cajun and the authentic chowder recipe is from a best friend, whose sister lives in Louisiana. She has a whole pantry door of spices, because she loves spicy and seasoned food, and onions and garlic. “The more flavor the better,” is what she says husband, Christopher, says. His favorite meal is onions, mushrooms and gravy over hamburger steak with mashed potatoes.

They have a garden and love to saute mushrooms, garlic and onions for spaghetti and use the tomatoes they have grown. They also grew spaghetti squash for the first time this year. He enjoys hunting, and cooking on the grill and smoker, and she enjoys experimenting with the “inside cooking.”
She always enjoyed helping her mom, Kim Carr, with cooking everything but desserts. She especially likes her mom’s cream puffs, chicken and dumplings, and biscuits, but says she can’t duplicate the dumplings or biscuits, or her goulash.

Christy’s grandmother was Polish and she is anxious to try and make Pierogi, which her sister in Chicago  fixes a lot. Christy and her mom plan to set a date to try this out, but she is not sure which filling she will use.
She recalls helping her mamaw, Billie Sue Caples, make “lots of cakes and pies” for a school fundraiser once when she was BHS mascot, Brutus. She has also cooked with her making chicken and dumplings, and mentioned especially her chocolate pie. Mrs. Caples has mailed Christy a lot of family recipes.

Christy likes the tartness of lemon delight dessert, and sometimes enjoys it for a birthday of one of the ladies she works with at a salon in Starkville, saying that all nine of them there like to share recipes with each other.
