I wanted some Pecan Pie Bars

So I had a few readers ask if I was going to do more recipes. Periodically there will be more recipes coming out. This particular one got posted because I was craving pecan pie. I went to the store and bought a frozen one (I know, horrible; I was in a rush.) When I had some free time I decided to make these bars again.

I probably shouldn’t eat this on regular basis considering how much sugar goes into these but they are so good and I was in my feelings.

Do you eat Pecan Pie? Is this something you only have during the holidays?

 Pecan Pie Bars


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the sides and bottom of one 15×10 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, margarine or butter and salt until the mixture resemble coarse crumbs. Press firmly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl stir the eggs, corn syrup 1 1/2 cups white sugar, melted margarine and vanilla until blended. Stir in the chopped pecans.
  5. Spread the filling evenly over the hot crust. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes or until set. Let cool before slicing.

Meatless Monday: Are you in?

Many times you see posts, articles and Pinterest boards featuring recipes without meat for ‘Meatless Monday’.


Over the years I have seen a lot of blog posts about meatless Mondays. The thought of not eating meat used to bother me but as I get older I realized that I don’t have to eat meat everyday. There have been plenty of days when all I want to eat are vegetables and sometimes pasta.

Could you do it? Could you go without eating meat for just one day a week? Or maybe just for one meal on Mondays? Let us know what you think. Maybe we can do this together. Let me know if you have some meatless Monday favorites.
