growing up in texas with a grandfather who had pecan trees all over his property made me into a pecan lover. i remember years in college when i’d receive a cardboard box loaded with just pecans in their shells mailed from his floresville home. i still carry that love with me now.
i find myself reaching for pecans when i want a snack. and recently i’ve smothered them in easy cinnamon butter, just heated in the skillet.
