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!!

Candy corn is everywhere this time of year!  Truly, it’s become a great symbol of fall, and I can’t say that I don’t love the color combinations… because I do!  Bright in a fall palette.  It just seems right.  I guess Mother Nature is a pretty stylish gal, eh?

So many ways to use these colors… and not just in candy corn!  Check it out!!  And don’t blame me if you get a craving for some candy corn!!

National Martini Day

 

I just checked the calendar and realized that today is National Martini Day!  No kidding!!  King Triton and I have collected a certain pattern of Depression glass, Manhattan, and I have several martini glasses in Manhattan, but I’ve never made and served martinis in them.  Maybe it’s time to change that with some of these very intriguing recipes!!  ;)

(Here’s what the Manhattan pattern looks like, just so you know what I’m talking about.  It’s a gorgeous design!)

Okay, now on to the recipes!  (And just to be clear, I am *not* in any way advocating irresponsible or underage drinking!!  I do occasionally enjoy an adult beverage, but would never suggest that a minor partake in adult beverages!)

Pecan Pie Martini from Everyday with Rachael Ray

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Martini from Daydreamer Desserts

Birthday Cake Martini from DrinkedIn

Cool As A Cucumber Martini from The Daily Meal

Blow Pop Martini from Taste for Adventure by tablespoon

Watermelon Martini from Gina’s Skinny Recipes

S’mores Martini from Tasty Trials

 

So now the only question is,

Which one to start with???

There must be a bazillion ways to cook corn on the cob—and they are all posted online!!

I found a method that really works for us, since I abhor all those darn silks…. and having to pull them all off makes me nuts and not want to serve fresh corn as much as I should.

Here’s Ken describing his super-easy method:

 

Isn’t that amazing?  And we just did it tonight!  IT REALLY WORKS!! I was so surprised that I hadn’t heard about it before now!

Some of our favorite things from this week’s excursions in the interwebs…..

 

Dean Russo art

 

Love the artwork of Dean Russo.  Talented NY pop artist.  The colors are so….. perfect.  This Firu one has great wisdom too.

 

DIY Chandelier from Brassy Apple

 

Brassy Apple has a great tutorial on how to make this cute DIY Chandelier that caught Ariel’s eye.  It’s colorful and blingy.  What else could a girl want?

 

DIY infinity scarf by Anna Evers at Plan B

 

We’ve been looking at infinity scarves for a while now.  Love this DIY version by Anna Evers at Plan B!

 

DIY Hummingbird Mister Birdbath from Birds & Bloom

 

Who knew hummingbirds loved to be misted?  Not us.  Well, maybe Grammy does, but she hadn’t told us.  If we get inspired, we might make one of these DIY Hummingbird Mister Birdbaths from Birds & Bloom.  (and if she’s reading this, she might make it before we get a chance to!)

 

Skillet Pizza Monkey Bread from Pillsbury.com

 

I’m always on the look-out for easy meals.  And not just easy for me to make…easy for my family to love!  This Skillet Pizza Monkey Bread from Pillsbury sounds like it would be fun to make and eat!

 

What fabulous finds found you this week?
