Recently, we’ve had several people request that we brew up a batch of our “famous” homemade pralines – so we decided to oblige them. The recipe we use is one that has been tweeked and re-vamped so many times over the years that we’re unsure where it started or what the original measurements or ingredients were…but we’ve managed to settle on something that’s amazingly delicious. We use an old dutch oven that has been in the family for many generations and we look for the freshest pecans on the market ensuring a praline that’s velvety smooth and chock full of pecans.
Be sure and check back tomorrow for a look at the finished product~
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
