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.

This sounds so delicious, I need to post it on my blog so I can find it again when I want to make it. Thanks for sharing it!
Our cilantro is on the verge of bolting, so we assembled some of our cilantro-using recipes to use it while it’s still good. This one basically decimated two of the three plants. Not necessarily a good choice, to tell the truth, since it’s the recipes that use only part of a bunch from the store that are hard to justify at other times. But this is a terrific meal.

Would you have enough water in your home for you and your family to last until the water came back? Or if you live in the southwest, would you have enough in a situation where your city just plain runs out of water?

This is a great article on helping someone get through an anxiety attack. Worth reposting.
Anxiety. Every person in the world has it and has to deal with it on a daily basis. Whether it is big or small, everyone has something that they worry about or are fearful of.

Bad anxiety or stress can become very detrimental and harmful to a person if it raises to unhealthy levels.
I recently read an article written by Jacklyn Krol on “Thought Catalog” that I thought would be good to share with you. Since I have dealt with anxiety attacks and raised anxiety levels in the past, articles like this have really helped me deal with my stress levels in more effective ways. The thing that has helped…
