Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Gobble gobble's something to gobble on OTHER than turkey this Thanksgiving!

Mystery Pecan Pie!!!MMMM

Let me just let you in on the mystery: CHEESECAKE! I know, now you have to make this, right?


1 block cream cheese

3/4 cup sugar

4 eggs

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup pecans

2 piecrusts

Layer both crusts together in a 9" pie pan. Mix together cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and one egg with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour mixture into crust. Lick the spoon (and the beaters and the bowl and your fingers) trust me, this stuff is delish! (as long as you aren't one of those people who doesn't eat raw dough and batter because it contains raw eggs! Who does that?) Next, sprinkle chopped pecans over the cheesecake layer. Mix together corn syrup, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and 3 eggs together and pour over pecans . IMPORTANT: put this on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet!! It overflows and I'm still trying to scrape the sticky off the pan right now. Put in oven at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until set. NOTE: cover edges of crust with aluminum foil to prevent overbrowning. NOTE #2: I didn't do this...spray aluminum foil with cooking spray to prevent pulled some of the crust off of mine. Finally try to wait until the family comes over for dinner before you cut into the pie and scarf it down enjoy it slowly with a cup of coffee!

WARNING!!! Don't drool on your computer!

Lots of love,

That looks yummy.

non-reply comment means no one can respond to your e-mails. To fix it, go to your DASHBOARD, click on MY ACCOUNT (top right in dark blue bar). You will see your picture--look to the right and you will see 2 boxes-1 says something about showing your name and the other allows e-mails. (I have both clicked, some people only click the e-mail one).

While you are there on that page you need to scroll all the way down and towards the middle of the screen, see if you have your blog listed, if not, scroll up just a little bit and look on the left side until you see the word LINKS. Add your blogs URL and it will allow people to get to you when you follow someone.

If there are any other things you need help with, let me know.

One other things I would highly recommend --get rid of the word verification--it is in the set up area of your blog. Some of the BOG bloggers have done polls and the over all consensus is people hate word verification. It does absolutely nothing to help secure your blog.
