    My Favorite Kind of Pie

    Is pecan pie.  Oh, and we pronounce it pe-kon or pe-khan, never pee-can.  I'm from Louisiana, where you're very likely to have a pecan tree in your yard, and we make pecan pralines (pronounced praw-leens, not pray-leens!) and pecan pie.  I sooooo love pecan pie...

    The First Pie I Ever Made From Scratch.

    I guess it's been every bit of twenty year's ago when I made my first pecan pie from scratch. It turned our really good for my first shot. I still love a big slice of pecan pie here and there but I go buy it. After I buy everything I need to make one and still have leftover stuff...

    Nut Pies

    I grew up in the South; of course I like pecan pie!  Most restaurants carry it, and we made it often at home.  (The recipe on the Dark Karo Syrup bottle, to be honest.)  Our church grounds had lots of pecan trees, so while my parents were visiting after church, I'd...

    My Gramma Made It Every Year For Thanksgiving

    And every year, I'd turn my nose up at it, choosing the pumpkin pie or cherry pie instead.  It wasn't until I was 18, and my Gramma made it for the last time that I tried it, and I was amazed at how delicious it was.  Why was I such a pie-snob earlier?  Someday...

    Growing up, my favorite pie was apple. I never had pecan pie as a child. The first time I had pecan pie I was 21 years old! And from that moment on pecan has been my favorite pie. I could sit down on Thanksgiving and probably eat an entire pecan pie. Yum!

    With Ice Cream And Peace To The World

    I love pecan pie with vanilla ice cream. It's a desert that ranks up there with tiramisu. I once said that tiramisu was akin to money in the old days. People would base their wealth based on tiramisu. But, after a hard day in the office counting all of the tiramisu you've...
