Jack Daniels Sugared Pecans

My love affair with pecans is recent. Growing up, I hated nuts. Other than cashews, I never ate them, and I absolutely hated them in my baked goods. I still do, actually.

Happy Birthday, Julia!!

If you know me, you know how much I love Julia Child. She was a strong women when you had to be awfully brave to be a strong woman. She was fearless in the kitchen and in life. She was imperfect and loved every bit of her imperfect self. Julia Child died in 2004, but […]
