Strawberry Muffins
Just made these. Read all reviews first and made the following changes. 1 1/2 cups strawberries instead of 1 cup. 1/4 c white sugar & 1/4 c brown. Reduced flour to 1 1/2 cups. Added 1 tsp vanilla. Also since i usually don't bake with oil, i substituted that with butter. Had one hot out of the oven. It's ok. A bit tart. Maybe next time i should have kept the 1/2 cup white sugar instead of reducing it to 1/4 cups. Did not try adding cinnamon as i didn't want it to over power the taste of the berries. Waiting for them to cool so i can test them on the kiddies :) Done in 20 mins. Made 10 regular size muffins.

Pecan Pie V
I have been searching for a pecan pie recipe that does not use corn syrup. This is because i never buy/use it and do not want to waste money buying a full bottle just for a recipe. I tried this recipe tonight and am very happy with the results. I LOVE pecan pie. I have tried making one years ago and failed (undercooked on bottom and burned on top) causing me not to try again. Until today that is. I followed the recipe except i totally forgot to add the flour. Pie still came out great so i don't know how it would be if i did add the flour. The other small changes i made (after reading the many reviews) was i toasted my pecans first and i used a little less then the 1/4 cup white sugar (like half of that). I added an extra 1/2 cup pecans on top (as i do love pecans). Baked it in a Pillsbury pie crust using a 9" tart pan (did not have a pie pan). I did 350 for 15 minutes then lowered to 300 for 35 minutes. I put 50 minutes but it started to crack at 35 minutes so i turned it off. Had a slice warm. It was moist and yummy. Will try more tomorrow to see how well it taste overnight. Overall, i will definitely make this again and again :)
