Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Sinfully Sweets Saturday!

I'm talking DESSERTS sweet:) DESSERTS spelled backwards spells STRESSED! An email I received from friend S yesterday reminded me of that! Any justification I can find in eating some sweets, is okay with me. And stress, sisters, is validation to me:) lol!!!!!!! If you don't know anything about me by now......know that I LOVE SWEETS!! Any form, shape or fashion! Heck....I JUST LOVE TO EAT! Ask any of my family, friends or co-workers....up most priority!

So with that thought in mind, here is the recipe for Mom's pecan pie!

KT's Pecan Pie


3/4 stick of butter, softened

3/4 c. sugar

4 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

1 1/2 c light karo syrup

2 c chopped pecans

2 regular pie crusts


Mix together the butter, sugar and eggs until creamy. Add syrup and vanilla flavoring. Then add the pecans. Pour into 2 ready made pie crusts.

Bake on 300 for 1 hour. Let stand until cool....unless you're like me and eat it when it's hot with a big 'ole slab of vanilla bean ice cream.

Umm Umm Good!! Lick your the whole pie....GOOD! Too bad the thing is gone.....ya know the ones I made Thursday for son #1's school project.....are gone.....I sure would like to have another bite:) We cannot keep groceries around here. If prices continue to soar through the roof...we are going to have to resort to gardening, rationing and milking our own cow:) lol!!!!!!!!! Hubby returned some calf milk, a 50 lb bag, to the local farm store. The guy asked why he was returning it, hubby replied, "because I can't get my kids to drink it!" Here's your sign!! He was trying to be funny, but probably serious too! That liquid gold they call milk is outrageous!

I wrote that recipe down. It sounds so good. Maybe I can try it this week. Anna and her friends always want something sweet for lunch. I have been trying to think of something different to send. Thanks. You remind me so much of Myra. I hope everyone is doing well in your family. Have a good week girlfriend! Love You!

I'm totally printing this recipe off! I'm trying to lay off the sweets lately so this baby doesn't come out weighing 12 pounds, and since I'm dedicating every spare calorie to the Reese's Peanut Butter Easter Eggs, then I'll be dieting for the next 6 months(or years) or so...I should be ready to make this pie just in time for the
