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!!

Your influence as an adult is far greater than you might imagine.

This video struck a chord with me.   I hope it strikes one with you too.  Our children deserve to see us at our very best…. because they will emulate us — for better or for worse.  I’m not trying to put anyone on a guilt trip because I certainly have my own bad days.  Just trying to remind myself and all of you how our actions speak far louder than our words.

Today marks six years since we were rescued by our sweet Beagle mix, Lola!  I couldn’t imagine a better “puppy-sister” for Ariel.  She’s been a great addition to our family and I encourage you to check out your local animal rescue or shelter if you’re looking for a lifelong friend.

Check out this fun video from the SPCA of Wake County.  The tune is “Take a Chance on Me” from ABBA.  And, yes, these loving animals do need you to take a chance on them!!  Please do!!
