Peach Coffee Cake II
We've always loved this recipe. Recently, we've made it with a bundt cake pan, but had to add 15 minutes to the baking time due to the thickness. We added vanilla yogurt to the top of it and it tasted wonderful!

Pecan Pie
Ok! Ok! I guess I should review this recipe since there's a picture of my own pie up there at the top. LOL I've had this recipe now for 3 or 4 years (maybe longer...I can't remember) and I've made it for Thanksgiving every year since. Everyone RAVES about this pie from the oldest to the youngest. There's even little fingers vying to get the last little sticky morsel in the bottom of the pie plate. Just a week ago I made this pie for our church's annual Harvest Dinner. The volunteers who were working there before the dinner began were taking the pecan pie pieces BEFORE everyone else got there to make sure they got a piece. The pie was gone within minutes after the dinner began. I think next year I'll skip the pumpkin and just take 2 pecan pies. LOL This pie is one of the easier pies that I've made. I love the simplicity of the recipe. There are a few steps, but nothing too elaborate that one couldn't understand. I've always made this with light corn syrup because that's all I buy and it turns out fabulously! My kids love this pie so much that my daughter asked me to copy the recipe for her to put in her recipe box. She's just 10. She says, "No one can make a better pecan pie than you Mom!" So, Jackie, thank you for sharing this recipe here for all of us to savor and enjoy.

French Bread
This recipe was extremely easy to follow. Although it had quite a few steps, the bread turned out so good! The crust on the outside was shiny, the inside wasn't dry at all. This bread was delicious!
