I took a short reprieve from posting to turn one year older and without a doubt it was painful! Not that it was a mile-stone birthday, but I truly felt my age and was glad to see the day pass.

Do you give food away as gifts? I do with time permitting. I love to make things in my kitchen and give them as a gift from my heart!

Our Thanksgiving Day started with my side of the family eating breakfast at our home. We served the usual items that one would see in a breakfast buffet, such as bacon, eggs, hash brown potatoes, and biscuits; with the exception of this dish that I thought deserved special mention.

I seldom ever try a new recipe on company, but I really wanted to give this one a whirl!
OK, I admit I have been in a cooking slump lately (maybe the time change) and for that I apologize. I have truly fell short in providing delicious and wonderful recipes for you to enjoy. Yesterday, I received very inspiring comments from a couple of visitors to “All Things Home Related.” The words of encouragement were so wonderfully flattering that I actually ended up in the kitchen making this Pecan Pie Cobbler. I think the encouraging messages helped me get my mojo back! Thanks for inspiring me, Christy and Linda!
Just for snacking, these delicious Cinnamon Pecans are the bomb! I made these pecans for us to eat while we are watching the St. Louis Cardinal World Series game tonight. I hope they win!
