I just couldn't keep this good-find to myself! I am always in search of the next big family favorite/gotta have it cookie or candy recipe. This year while going through the Old-Fashioned Candy cook book that I picked up at the Biltmore Estate a few years ago,
I found the recipe for Spiced Pecans. I figured I should try this recipe because it sounded alot like the pecans that my friend and I had when we went to Savannah, Ga this past summer and I loved the spiced pecans they made down there.
Well, the house smelled fantasitc while the pecans were baking and they are a new big-time favorite! I packaged them up in cute holiday treat baggies that I picked up at Target and have been sharing them with everyone.
Here is the recipe so that you can enjoy them too~
This fall when things were super crazy and I didn't have a spare moment, I thought to myself...how fun would it be to hang out at my good friends house for a long weekend before the holidays got rolling. So I called her up and invited myself down to her house. (She is one of those good friends you can do that with...I'm not usually that forward with people...really only her!) I just wanted to hang out at her house, talking and knitting which was perfect. I actually got a few Christmas gifts done while I was there. I got a hat done for my daughter while on the plane....I think it turned out cute, if I do say so myself!
(I will share pictures of the other hats soon but they are gifts so I don't want to spoil the suprise.)
So how fun was that.....The Butter Churn Parade on A Quilting Life and Pink Pincushion blogs last week was awesome! I can't pick a favorite....every quilt was wonderful! I sure hope you had a chance to see the parade...if not, jump back over to their blogs and check it out. Now for those of you who left me a comment during the parade, I know you are waiting to see who won the collection of new patterns.
