Oh….is there anything better than Rich Caramel Pecan Pie? I just don’t think so.  Even those who don’t care for nuts, seem to be nuts about Pecan Pie. I tend to make this once a year, since it’s loaded with hip spreading calories.  Pecan pie, is probably one of the easiest pies to make, since […]

Turkey is so easy and delicious to prepare in a slow Cooker. I usually prepare it this way for Thanksgiving Day Dinner and several other times during the year. The Turkey is never dry, and you end up with fabulous stock for the perfect gravy.   If your ovens are over loaded during the holidays […]
