Well, in case you haven’t guessed, I love sweets and desserts. I love them so much that have to make sure that I don’t over do it, like the time my parents told me not to eat all the Halloween candy the first night and I did….Ugh. When I do have sweets I usually like them to be very sugary. Go big or go home right? Take these cinnamon sugar pecans for example, they use real sugar and are the definition of delicious.
There are so many ways and times to enjoys these delicious cinnamon sugar pecans. I love to add them to salads, have them as a snack or put them out for guests at a party. I actually gave them to a friend recently along with her baby shower gift and she loved them. You can also store them in an airtight jar for up to 3-4 weeks without loosing any of the wonderful flavor.

Happy National Blueberry Month! In its honor, I’m making a Blueberry Crisp. This is a crisp rather than a cobbler, because the crust is crispy instead of doughy or biscuit-like.
This takes me back to my childhood. Berry crisps/ cobblers have always been one of my favorite desserts. Unfortunately, many times they are made with regular flour so I haven’t been able to enjoy them out in quite a while. I’ve been working on perfecting this recipe for a while now, so that it’s simple and most of all tasty. Is it ever, ever bite takes me back to eating out with my mom at Cracker Barrel….now their cobbler had a more doughy crust, I like this cinnamon crunchy one so much better. When I lived in New York after college, my mom and I would go to Cracker Barrel in Milford, Connecticut as an escape from the overly saucy, non-homey food (at least to me) in New York….sorry, this California/ Texas girl likes to keep it simple. I would always order the grilled fish with a side of veggies so that I could “afford” the calories in the blackberry cobbler. I would never share my desert either, it was mine, all mine. … Read Full Post
