Happy Holidays to all of our wonderful readers – we owe it all to you and we can’t possibly thank you enough! We’re looking forward to spending the Christmas and New Year’s holidays with our families so posts may be a little slow this week, but we have lots of exciting new plans and ideas in the works for the new year that we just can’t wait to share with you. See you back here soon!
Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season!
Here we are just two days until Christmas! Are you ready, or are you frantically running around trying to get all those last minute gifts done, cooking and baking done, cleaning done? I’m in the process of all three – and the quote “the hurrier I go, the behinder I get” does seem to apply to me!
I just want to make a suggestion on the baking part of your preparations – if you have a spot left on your table, I’d like you to check out my secret pecan cake recipe! This has been a family favorite that was handed down from my mother-in-law! I’ll show you a picture here, but you’ll need to run on over to my personal blog SarahJDoyle.com to get the actual recipe! This may just become YOUR family favorite as well — easy to make and delicious! Here’s the cake in my Christmas serving plate.
And here’s a slice I cut just to show you how it looks on the serving plates.
You may even have the ingredients on hand, so make a spot for this – you’ll be glad you did!
After Christmas we can get back to sewing and crafting again!
