Festive Party Mix

Festive Party Mix

A special holiday recipe passed down from my grandmother... baked in the oven to savory and salty perfection.  It's a snap to make, satisfies any cravings, and completely addicting!  And it's not like that other party mix that you may know of. ;)

Drivin' Me Nuts Granola

Drivin' Me Nuts Granola

CeeCee baked up this wonderful granola with seasonal cranberries, 2 kinds of nuts, and a yummy blend of spices that filled her kitchen with a heavenly aroma. I can attest to the benefits of baking your own granola, and how having it around can drive you nuts trying to not eat it all yourself! Perhaps that's why CeeCee points out that it makes a great hostess gift. ;)

An amazing pecan pie that, as a pecan pie lover, is infinitely better than any pecan pie I have tasted before. No gelatin-like stiff middle and tons of chopped pecans throughout the pie - it's pecan pie perfection!
