    Re: Chunky Pecan Pie Bars

    These look so amazing I can't wait to try them! I love pecan pie, it's one of my favorites but I don't like store bought crust and I hate making my own crust.

    Re: Summer Fireworks Pasta Salad

    I wanted to add that you can serve this in plasticware on a tray so people can just grab one and go. It makes it easier for the kids to get a serving and it looks great in the cups too.
