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!
Today we would like to say a special THANK YOU to all of the veterans of military services! In addition we’d like to say thank you to all of the active duty military personnel that are away from their families and doing their duty to protect us and our United States!
My husband is a veteran – retired from the Air Force. My brothers served their time – one of them in the Air Force, the other two in the Army. My son served in the Air Force for 8 years before he got out and joined a company that does contract work for the military overseas. He’s been in Korea for the last 12 years with the same company working at the Army bases there.
Once again, our heartfelt thank you to those active duty personnel and veterans who have (and are currently) serving our country!
