It’s story time!

Pull up your carpet square and open your ears (or eyes I guess in this case).

Once upon a time, in a mystical place called internet-land, a girl named Rachel (me) came across a blog called Bev Cooks. This Bev has magical cooking and photography powers and the ability to make you laugh each time you stumble upon her piece of internet-land. 

So the young and beautiful princess (just go with me here) named Rachel returned day after day to see what Bev had conjured up. 

One day…a cloudy, rainy day just before Thanksgiving, Rachel spotted a recipe for pecan pie

In ramekins.

With bourbon.

Could it be? 

So Rachel tried to channel Bev’s magical cooking powers and recreate these in her very own kitchen. Rachel’s husband says, “But I do not like pecan pie.” 

Rachel says, “Oh that’s nice, but I’m going to try this recipe anyways. IT HAS BOURBON IN IT!”

So into the kitchen she goes.

Pots and pans fly.

Measuring cups fill up…and empty. 

An oven gets heats.

And 35 minutes later….POOF!


Turns out bourbon really does make everything better.

Turns out Rachel’s husband does like pecan pie.

The end.

Was that anti-climatic?  Oh well. Follow this link and make this recipe. Stat! It would be perfect for Christmas dinner! Send me some while you’re at it.
