I’m about to make a confession here. The holidays stress me out. And not in a “too busy” kind of way, because I love seeing family and friends and catching up. The holidays stress me out in a “too much stuff” kind of way. The “stuff” overwhelms me, and because of it, I turn to EASY food options, like this simple recipe for delicious pecans.

“This turned out very good. After eating some, I have memories of pecan pie without all of the calories. I would make them again.”
