Have you ever had one of those friends who defines hospitality? That’s my friend, Lori. I’ve known her for 9 years now, and there are 3 things (at a minimum) I admire about her:
- Lori’s life is guided 100% by faith.
- Lori’s smile is genuine at all times.
- Lori’s hands are almost always holding a small, thoughtful gift of hospitality or appreciation.
These pecans were one of her gifts, placed in a simple cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon or twine and, the greatest gift, recipe attached.
Most of the time, a double batch is required because I can’t give them all away. Kept in the freezer, they will stay fresh and crunchy for months.
Add a few to a spinach and strawberry salad … to chicken salad along with a few dried cranberries … to morning oatmeal or yogurt and fruit … to butter-pecan ice cream …
Simple and impressive, I have given these as party favors, as small Christmas gifts, and as a part of wedding or shower baskets.
I know Lori won’t mind if I share the recipe with you … after all, sharing is what she does best! Just don’t forget to pass it on …
