Easy Fudge Recipe

My all time favorite FUDGE! It’s easy to make, no thermometer required and has a great old fashioned, amazing fudge flavor and texture!    These days you can hardly visit a tourist town without running across three or four shops advertising their “homemade fudge.” Even normal towns seem to have one or two shops like that in their downtown stretches or main streets.

The Best Pecan Pie Bars

The best Pecan Pie Bars…….. Well, let me tell you a little story. I started making Pecan Pie Bars over 30 years ago.  The recipe I used back then was delicious.  I’m talking, rock your world kind of delicious, not simply run of the mill kind of delicious. I was almost famous for making those bars. They were on every Christmas cookie plate I gave out and the recipe was always requested. Then for some reason I decided to try a new recipe. That, in and of itself, was strange because generally when I have a recipe I really love...
