Pecan Pie V
Very good recipe...although if I were to rate it on the day I baked it, I would give it 3 stars. It just seemed overly sweet to me, but the next day, it was definitely 5 stars. I guess the flavor needed time to mellow out a bit. So, prepare this pie the day before you intend to slice into it...you will not be sorry! Another thing I did was follow the directions for oven temp and time, but I found that the filling was perhaps a tad too dry. I will follow other reviewers' suggestion and bake for 10 minutes at 350 and then 40-55 minutes at 300.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
This cookie is amazing! Everybody loves it, including my picking 4 year old, who can't get enough. The first time I made this, I stuck to the recipe, and it was delish. The second time, I cut the sugar to only 3/4 cup and it was just as good, if not better. Since the dough was very sticky, I put it in the fridge for 1/2 an hour before forming them into balls, and it was mess-free to work with. Will be making this again and again.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets
Wasn't a huge fan of this recipe. While it was a cinch to make, in the end, the overpowering balsamic flavour made it taste like I poured salad dressing over the salmon...and I love balsamic. I guess I favour a more sweeter teriyaki-type of glaze with my fish.
