I've had some recipes from Simply Recipes waiting, so I decided to take the opportunity to try them. First up is a classic pecan pie, which, for the record, I always seem to screw up.
This recipe is delightful, though, and the added molasses and brown sugar makes for a dark filling that isn't too syrupy sweet.
For the record, I was able to eat a quarter of the pie in one sitting, something I would never be able to do with a regular pecan pie.
The second recipe I butchered is Elise's take on banana nut muffins. Of course, I only had one banana in the house, so I had to dramatically abbreviate and alter the recipe and combine it with a package of banana nut muffin mix.
Despite all my attempts to the contrary, this recipe turned out quite well.
They're basically your classic banana nut muffin. The mashed banana makes them much more moist than muffins from the package, though.
I will be reviewing some other recipes in the coming weeks. The fewer non-perishables I move with, the better. I inherited almost a dozen red delicious apples, so expect some awkward apple recipes soon.
