I've been trying a lot of new dishes lately. I don't know why, maybe it has something to do with winter coming, a connection with the squirrelly part of my family.
And speaking of nuts, this new pecan pie recipe I tried is so good it rivals my mom's favorite pie.
She wasn't a frequent pie baker, but pecan pie was her favorite and this time of year, when the pecans came in, she'd fix it often.
This first recipe is from Sunnyland Farms in Albany, Ga., and it is to die for.
