Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Butter Pecan Fudge

The last treat shared at work - and my favorite of the day - Butter Pecan Fudge.  The original recipe came from

1/2 c  Butter
1/2 c  Heavy Cream
1/2 c  Sugar
1/2 c  Light Brown Sugar
1 c  Pecan Halves
1 t  Vanilla
2 c  Confectioners Sugar

Line an 8 inch baking dish with non stick foil.  Set aside.

Toast pecan halves (heat a heavy skillet, add pecans, stir constantly until toasted - 1 to 2 minutes)
In a large saucepan (at least 4 quart), add butter, cream and sugars.

Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Allow to boil 4 minutes and remove from heat.  Stir in pecans and vanilla.  

Add confectioners sugar and stir until smooth and well combined (will take some muscle).  

Spread into a baking dish.

Cool to room temperature, cut and serve.  Store in the refrigerator.
