Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
This pie was delicious!! I left out the bourbon since I made it for a church function. I also followed other reviewers' suggestion and added 2-3 oz chocolate chips as a bottom layer instead of inside the batter. It fit perfectly in a deep dish pie plate and baked beautifully on the 2nd to lowest rack without burning the top or bottom. Next time, I will make a homemade crust using the "Irresistible Pecan Pie" recipe since it is better than the frozen type. Can't wait to make again and try the bourbon version!

Irresistible Pecan Pie
This pie was delicious and I'm just starting to like pecans. As others suggested, I added 1.5 tsp vanilla and 1 Tbsp flour to the batter. I baked in a deep dish pie plate on the 2nd to lowest shelf, but had to cover with foil in the last 10-15 minutes to avoid burning the top. Next time, I plan to bake at 325 instead of 350. I baked a chocolate pecan pie at 325 the same night and it came out perfect without having to cover it.

Strawberry Bread
The flavor of this bread was very good. However, mine was basically raw in the middle after the cooking time. The toothpick test didn't detect it either. Even though it wasn't completely cooked we still ate it... kinda like eating cookie batter! I will try again!
