The Most Amazing Pecan Pie You'll Ever Have!

I have made this about 5 times now for different occasions and it's gotten nothing but perfect reviews from everyone.

This past Thanksgiving, not only was the first one I got to spend with my husband, but it was the first time I cooked Thanksgiving Dinner. That's a lot of pressure! He loves Pecan Pie, so I searched AllRecipes for a recipe and found this one. Some of the reviews said it would be the best pecan pie I would ever taste in my life. I thought to myself, "It can't be THAT good.. can it?"

Uh, yes. It's like a symphony in your mouth. The second you take a bite, tears almost immediately fall from your face cause of how amazing it is.

And you think I'm joking.

I swear by this recipe, and I will never ever even TRY to use another one. It's also very easy!

The Ingredients

  • 1 C light brown sugar
  • 1/4 C white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C chopped pecans
  • 9-in frozen pie crust
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Melt butter in microwave and then stir in with eggs. Stir in the brown sugar, white sugar, and the flour. Mix well. Then add the milk, vanilla, and nuts.
  3. Pour into pie shell. Bake in 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 30-40 minutes or until done.
Hope you love it as much as we do!


I started this blog when we were getting ready to go on Christmas Leave and ever since we got back I have been so busy with school, I haven't taken the time to take pics and post them. I'm working on posting 2 recipes tonight! Stay tuned..

Chicken Cordon Bleu.

I made these last night, and I will admit I was a little scared. I didn't want to ruin something as prestigous as chicken cordon bleu! But thank the stars.. they came out friggin' delicious.

The Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (I used chicken breast fillets, because they are already thin and it's easier to roll up)
  • 4 slices cooked ham (I highly suggest you use deli sliced ham, my ham was really thick)
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 C seasoned bread crumbs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • toothpicks
  • non-stick cooking spray

     1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

-Pound chicken breasts until they are about 1/4 inch thick.

3.Put the 1/2 C of seasoned bread crumbs in a bowl. This makes the process much easier.
Yes, I just posted a picture of bread crumbs in a bowl.

 4. Lay chicken flat. Roll up ham tight and roll slice of cheese around it. Fold up chicken and secure with toothpicks. Use as many as you need to!

5. Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken.

 6. Put chicken in bowl of bread crumbs and cover chicken completely.

7. You don't HAVE to do this, but my friend Kelsey was over and she said this is what she does so I did it :) Put a little butta on top!
(Note: don't let your husbands in the kitchen at this point, they will just dump the rest of the breadcrumbs all over your chicken because APPARENTLY the chicken needs to be drowning in it :) )

8. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done.

9. Take out of oven and place 1/2 slice of cheese on top of each breast.

 10. Put back in oven for 3-5 mins, or until cheese is melted.


Serve with a side salad, and it's a perfect meal!

Well, hello there.

Hey everyone, Laura here. Welcome to my food blog :) I have been thinking about making one of these for awhile now, and I'm glad I finally did it. I'm always sharing my recipes with people anyway, so why not make a blog out of it?!  I made some awesome chicken cordon bleu's tonight, but it is late and I'm tired, so I will post them tomorrow :)
