Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake
first of all - I love that this recipe uses good whole ingredients (no cake mixes). I was looking at a cake mix the other day and decided NO MORE. Too many funky ingredients. Simple ingredients are just as easy and you know what's in the cake then! I have made this several times the night before. I used a bundt pan and baked for 50 min at 350°. I put half the cake mixture, then filling, then cake mixture in the pan. After it cools a bit, I seal the whole thing, including the pan in my big 26 cup Tupperware bowl until the next morning. When I want to take it out, I put the pan in hot water for a few mins and it turns right out on my cake stand beautifully! Locking the moisture in overnight makes it super moist. To finish it off I mix a little powdered sugar and water in a ziploc baggie, cut the corner and drizzle it over. It turns out tasting like it's straight from the bakery and I've gotten rave reviews. Awesome recipe!!!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II
GREAT recipe!!! Although I left out the garlic salt (because artichoke hearts usually come in brine) and also used fresh spinach. I wilted about 90g (because some juice comes out), then chopped and threw that in. PERFECT!!! Definitely a staple for my dip recipes. Thanks :)

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake
This recipe is just AWESOME!!! I make this regularly now for Thanksgiving and everyone raves about it. It's a great alternative to the plain old pumpkin pie. Many thanks for the recipe!!
