This and That

After using every bowl, pan and spatula in the house, I give you Salted Browned Butter Nutties. My entry for the Dixie Crystals recipe contest. A rich salty sweet cookie that’s perfect for the pecan lover.

My kids? Not pecan lovers. What’s the takeaway? More cookies for me! Of course I’ll have to freeze the eight dozen I made, but that matters not. I love these cookies.

If you are a wine drinker, these cookies pair beautifully with a full-bodied red. If you aren’t a wine drinker, dunk them in your coffee. They will soak it up like a sponge. Delicious.

Now that my cookies are finished, it’s time to pack for a mini adventure. Nothing grandiose mind you. Just a weekend trip for work. But the best part of this work trip is that I get to bring the girls along for the ride. We’ve never had a girls weekend before, so we are all pretty excited about it.

I’ll share more on that over the weekend, but I just wanted to give you a heads up because I’m going to be pretty quiet tomorrow other than a giveaway post. But rest assured the blog will be updated over the weekend.

Have a very happy Thursday! Just one more day until the weekend. You’re almost there!
