8 delicious pecan recipes

Growing up in the south, there’s always a discussion on how to pronounce the word “pecan.”  Is it “PEE-can” or is it “pa-CAHN”?  I guess it really doesn’t matter as long as you can enjoy it in various ways…. and we do!!

This beautiful cake from Confections from the Cody Kitchen looks a lot like my Mama’s—lots of thin layers with that scrumptious icing in-between…. but the recipe isn’t the same as hers. It does look delicious, though! May have to try this caramel cake thing soon!!

World Read Aloud Day

I’m such a lover of books and have encouraged Ariel’s love of books as much as possible.  It broke my heart when I read on litworld.org about children who had NEVER had someone read aloud to them except at school!  How sad.

As I work in Ariel’s school as a volunteer and as a substitute teacher, it is my favorite thing to read aloud to the students.  To take on different voices and inflections, to bring the book to life for them…. and their faces as they enjoy the book are priceless!

Please make a note of World Read Aloud Day—it’s this week!!  And check out this post for more ideas on how to make this event successful!
