Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
Read the other reviews if you want, but this recipe is great, as-is. I would however recommend putting the chocolate chips in the pie shell before poring the filling in, they do melt. I think a lot of reviewers that complain about the amount of filling being too much, are using an insufficient pie plate. There are many different sizes out there folks! The shallow ones are for thin pies like pumpkin pie, NOT this pie! I use a pyrex pie dish they currently sell for only 5 bucks, its the one with the scallop edges you can find anywhere. It is PERFECT! Bake 50 minutes, in the bottom 1/3 of your oven and you will be impressing everyone who is lucky enough to get a slice. This is a great recipe and I be adding it to my line-up! I use Jack DanielsĀ® at the full 1/4 cup recommended.

Molasses Cookies
These are maybe the best cookies I have ever made... I am a huge molasses fan, i kinda just tossed the spices in and amped them up a bit, also i used pumpkin pie spice because i didnt have cloves or ginger. Also I used half brown sugar half white to ensure they were soft. delicious and beautiful.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
I did not read the reviews before trying this out. In hindsight, yes, I think if the bacon was precooked a bit, it might be nice (I hate rubbery bacon, ew) But, I did cook it according to the directions, and if you use a thin-sliced bacon, on a hot grill, it did turn out wonderful and they were all gobbled up at my barbeque. ALSO- I did not use full slices of bacon, I cut them in half! But make sure they fit around the size of shrimp you use before cutting them all, you don't want to cut them too short and waste with the bacon not fitting! Very popular and I will definitely make again! I also tossed the shrimp with some terriaki sauce and marinaded 1/2 hour beforehand.
