The Bacon in the Pecan Pie, adds a hit of Salt to contrast the Sweet. It's a nice addition. I'll track down the recipe and post it here later...JJ

Looks great Richie, my wife is making a couple of pecan pies, a pumpkin and and apple. The kids will be taking what's leftover home. Too much pie for the two of use.
Point for sure

Looks great! Dutch apple, raspberry rhubarb and a no bake chocolate cheesecake with a shortbread cookie crust. The wife won’t let me be around when the cheesecake is made, she says I will just mess with it by adding things, she is probably 1000% correct
