June 24th – Happy National Praline Day!!!

This looks too delicious not to reblog! I am going to have to make these.




1 1/2 cups toasted pecans

1 1/2 cups white sugar

3/8 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

In large saucepan over medium heat, combine pecans, sugar, butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.

Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Let cool completely.

Cooks in 30 Mins / Ready to eat in 45 mins

There are different kinds of anxiety…there is good anxiety (such as an athlete getting ready to play in a game) or bad, chronic anxiety (worrying about things that a person had no control over or can’t do anything about). Bad anxiety or stress can become very detrimental and harmful to a person if it raises to unhealthy levels.
