Coconut Pecan Praline Candy

Not that long ago, I was given a bag of the most delicious pecans from my dear sweet friend Nancie McDermot.

I wanted to make something extra special with these delicious pecans, and something quintessentially southern. I settled on making coconut pecan praline candy, and I’m 100% certain they’re the best pecan pralines I’ve ever made or eaten!

How to Make American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I used to bake a decorate sugar cookies almost every day. That was about 10 years ago when I ran a small home based cookie business called Kudos Kookies. Notice anything familiar about the name? 😉

Now I only bake and decorate sugar cookies when I’m really in the mood, and when there is a special occasion. For me, Memorial Day and the 4th of July are just the types of special occasions which call for patriotic cookies. Especially when they’re these fun American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake

The batter for this cake is thick….really thick, but that’s what enables the fruit to stay wonderfully suspended throughout the entire cake, and not sink to the bottom (make that the top) of the cake, when the cake is inverted.

In almost each and every forkful you take of this Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake you’ll have a plump piece of strawberry or rhubarb, which is a very, very good thing!

Homemade Marzipan Candy Carrots

Making marzipan has been on my list of things I’ve wanted to make for years and years. Why it took me so long to make it, I’ll never know.

But what I do know is now that I finally have, I’m excited to have the block of homemade marzipan wrapped and stored in my fridge to mold, sculpt, and play with whenever the whim strikes.
