WOW! The merry-go-round has finally stopped. What a month it has been for us. To say that life is and has been full is quite an understatement. However, I think everything is back on track. I know this post is way late. I just wanted to give my review of the two recipes we used for these holiday desserts.
Pumpkin Flan from "Daisy: Morning, Noon and Night" by Daisy Martinez and Pecan Pie from "Baking from my home to yours" by Dorie Greenspan. Let me start by telling you that Dorie titled this recipe "My Favorite Pecan Pie" which you can find here at Borders Recipe File. I can't say it was my favorite though. I followed the recipe exactly and was not overly happy with it. It was a bit "busy" for my tastes. I'll keep looking for "my favorite" Pecan Pie recipe. However I did think Daisy's pumpkin flan was sensational, and so did everyone else. You can also find it here at Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine. There you can find quite a few of her recipes. I can tell you that she has never failed me.

So, this was excellent. It is going into my favorites files.
This, a bit much for my liking. Maybe I'll give it a try another time with just the addition of either the expresso or the chocolate, just not both.
