An Easy Pecan Pie Recipe The Entire Family Will Enjoy

easy pecan pie recipe

I like dessert and am usually not picky when it's time to eat.  But if you give me a choice of two things, I'm going straight for the pecan pie.  Served warm with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on top?  Yes, please!  That spells delish in so many languages!  When I was in college, I was given an easy Pecan Pie recipe that I made for my soon-to-be husband.  Since then, it's been a favorite in our house and a … [Read more...]

Think Nature’s Own Breads for the 4th of July

Go Further With Ford Trend Conference 2014 #FurtherwithFord

Ford Trends Conference

With my admiration for Ford vehicles, receiving an invitation to attend the 2014 Go Further with Ford Trend Conference in Dearborn was an honor.  My Dad has owned many Fords as we were growing up, and to this day compares his (older) Ford with my husband's F-150.  It's fun to see the changes, improvements and technology evolve with the years, though I bet my dad would still go back to his Model A in a heartbeat. With that … [Read more...]
