I have been using this recipe to make pecan pies for over 30 years. I think it was in an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that I had when I was a teenager.
Pecan pie always shows up on the Thanksgiving menu because I have a massive pecan tree in my backyard that produces the delicious native pecans. I also have a few chickens that give me fresh eggs which I use for the pies and to make my candied pecans. You can check out that recipe HERE.
- 1 Purchased pie crust or home made pie crust (see recipe below)
- 3 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups pecan halves
At the top of my bucket list was to travel to Manarola - Cinque Terre, Italy to see this view. How blessed I am to be able to enjoy this beautiful village.
I wrote several post about visiting this beautiful area of Italy which you can check out HERE.
Here is a short video I took of the Leaning Tower of Pisa when my daughter and I visited Italy. You will have to excuse the shaky start.
You can check out the post of our visit HERE.
I love photography but photos just could not capture the feel of standing in awe of this massive tower with the sound of the bell echoing off the beautiful old buildings.
Isn’t this chicken coop amazing? It’s a little over the top for me (meaning I would love to have it but not going to put in the time and cost to build it) but I loved the story behind the little coop as much as I loved the actual chicken coop.
Even if you don’t own chickens, you will enjoy how one man’s mid-life crisis morphed into what you see in the photo. You can check it out HERE.
