21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

Make Pecan Pie Like Grandma Timberlake

Pop singer Justin Timberlake recently opened his first restaurant in New York City. Called Southern Hospitality, it's a BBQ joint that serves exactly what you would expect from a Southern boy at heart: ribs, cornbread, hush puppies, and fried chicken. Many of the recipes are from his family's collection, including his grandmother's deviled eggs and pecan pie. Says Timberlake of his beloved deviled eggs:

It's my granny's original recipe that I grew up eating and she finally showed me how to make them.

That's not the only recipe his granny is sharing, because we have her scrumptious pecan pie. With a sweet, syrupy filling and crunchy, melt in your mouth pecans, this is one recipe that you will definitely want to make. For all of us who don't live in NYC, baking this pie is a great way to experience Justin's new eatery. So get the recipe now, all you have to do is

Ok - I am a bit disappointed in this recipe. I made it and am a great baker. But guess what? When we cut into it yesterday, the entire inside was liquid. It never gelled. The outside and crust areas looked amazing, but other than that - I think it needed to be cooked longer than 30 minutes. I have to redeem myself and am going to try another recipe that is almost identical, except it says to cook it for 55-60 minutes.
