    Thanks, Margaritaville! I was coming in here to ask for a good pecan pie recipe. I've never made one and everyone is requesting it this year.

    That Cranberry Almond bread looks good. I think I'll copy it too. But the 12 hours will be torture.

    I LOVE pecan pie. But I'm the only one that eats it and I don't need a whole pie this year. I truly wish I could have a slice of yours. It sounds good. There is a resturant here that does a chocolate chip, Jack Daniels pecan pie. I could go for a slice of that right now.

    I love making simple cookies for Christmas. The kids eat them up and they make nice gift plates for neighbors.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I made fudge for the first time today and for some reason, it didn't set. I followed the recipe to the letter and it tastes right, but it's a mushy gushy mess. Any ideas what I did wrong? If nothing else, I guess I can stick it in the freezer and make fudgsicles.

    I don't know what you did wrong, but even mushy gushy fudge still tastes good. Especially good warmed up and poured over peppermint stick ice cream. I'll be glad to come over and help you eat it! (I'll even bring the ice cream . . .)

    Everyone I know is getting cookies from me. I am making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. The recipe takes 3 ingredients. I was told it was a weight watchers recipe, but I can't find anything about it on their site. It is still good and easy.

    1 box spice cake mix
    1 can pure pumpkin -- (15 oz.)
    1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

    Make sure you use pure pumpkin, not pie filling. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

    humidity can ruin fudge and other candy. Ellen's right, heat it up and pour over ice cream!

    But the weather can do it, if water gets on a spoon you stir with or anything it can cause problems. That's why I hate making candy of any kind. Too many variables that can affect it.

    but it is salvagable.

    Here is a super easy recipe I'm going to try. High ratings on allrecipes.

    8 cups Chocolate Chex® cereal
    3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    6 tablespoons butter or margarine
    3 tablespoons light corn syrup
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 cup vanilla baking chips

    DIRECTIONS
    Into large microwavable bowl, measure cereal; set aside. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.
    In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave brown sugar, butter and corn syrup uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until melted and smooth. Stir in baking soda until dissolved. Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave on High 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread on cookie sheet. Cool 10 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces.
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla baking chips uncovered on High about 1 minute 30 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth (bowl will be hot). Drizzle over snack. Refrigerate until set. Store in tightly covered container.

    Did anyone make the cranberry almond bread? I am going to make the trip to the store and bake it this week - I just can't stand not baking any longer.
