#FestiveFoodies: Butter Pecan Cookies

Pecans are one of my favorite nuts. I love how easily they transition between sweet and savory dishes. I think I’ve mentioned that I hoard mini chocolate chips before. They’re sometimes impossible to find at the store and I prefer them in recipes so I tend to buy a bunch […]

#CranberryWeek: Cranberry Apple Pecan Bread
