Rut Row a Typo

Hello folks! I’m here to report that I should do nothing after dark, that includes typing on the computer. I told Christy Reid, the very kind and gracious writer who wrote the article about our family in the Mobile Bay Magazine,  that the Maple Cinnamon Pecans go back in the oven the second time at 200 degrees but really they go back in at 300! I thought I double checked everything, but somehow I missed this typo. I made them today and was going by the magazine recipe and realized the mistake. I let the magazine folks know, and they’re going to update the website. There are just a couple copies of the magazine floating around… if you’ve clicked over to the blog because your pecans are still sticky, I am so sorry! At 300 degrees they will get bubbly in the oven and then you’ll set them out on parchment to dry and they will actually dry. At 200 they stay a little sticky, still edible, still delicious, just a little sticky!

I also, inadvertently, left Christy out of the equation yesterday when I mentioned the kind folks at Mobile Bay Magazine, she is a very talented writer and we are so grateful for her story! Justin {my blog editor-in-chief} tells me all the time I need a class on syntax, I may see if Christy can help a sister out!

Pecan post {with proper temps} coming soon…

    Quick question about the Candy Cane Crunch cookies….how many cookies does the recipe you posted make? I made the dough tonight and will finish them tomorrow for a cookie exchange party- thanks for the great idea!

    No worries! I saw this recipe on pinterest and knew it was yours. I can’t wait to try it. I live in Texas and pecans are plentiful. The maple cinnamon pecans would be a perfect gift for neighbors.

    peanut butter fudge and your pecans are on the agenda for this weekend! and i am so relieved to not be the only girl whose husband is aghast by the writing on her blog…they don’t understand our time is limited and my brain, for one, is not what it used to be. i feel certain my old english teachers would be in shock if they found themselves reading my blog! have a great weekend and enjoy this great gulf weather!

    Sometimes my entire life feels like a typo. Most people will never ever realize that the pecans weren’t supposed to be sticky. There are lots of things we eat that are sticky…and who doesn’t love sticky buns? So maybe you should have two recipes: one for sticky pecans and one for not-so-sticky pecans. That’s like lemons and lemonade. You gotta love both of them! Have a blessed one and fret or worry over this. I made one of Pioneer Woman’s recipes twice and it didn’t turn out either time, but I did not blame her…I was sure it had to be me! But hey, I say, NO BLAME anywhere! Have a Merry Sticky Pecan Christmas! Love you!

    I’m so thrilled that Christy got to write the article about you!! She’s a great friend and FABULOUS writer, and I keep encouraging her to join us in the blogosphere (wink, wink). I can’t wait to read the article and make the recipe–a non-sticky version. Thanks for the update.

    I found your blog about a year ago. My little boy, Matthew, is Rover’s age and I enjoy your authenticity, love for family, and creative ideas. I thought the article was wonderful, but just did a “double take” when I read the name Christy Reid. I go to church with her here in Charleston. I knew she was a writer – but a humble one no doubt! Blessings to your family this Christmas Season.

    sticky pecans– would pecan meal come to the rescue? I have purchased pecan meal in an effort to add more fiber to to whatever I bake- that I think , perhaps pecan meal could improve. Having said that, this is a shout out to pecan meal buyers -what does it do for you girl?
