    Thanks so much for being a cooking buddy. I now have 3[but thats not too bad for a day and a half]. WOW! I cannot wait to try this recipe. I'm a NUT over anything pecan [especially butter pecan]. I think this will be a treat for this weekend. It's cold with snow showers predicted for most of the weekend so it will be a good time to bake!
