Every Thanksgiving my mom makes the most amazing Pecan Pie. She always makes an extra one for me so I can take it back to my apartment with me. Its such a simple recipe, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
4 cups of dark Karo syrup
3 cups of light brown sugar
2 tablespoons softened butter
1/4 cup of Evan Williams Bourbon Whiskey (optional)
4 cups of Pecans
3 tablespoons of Vanilla
1 box of Pillsbury Pie Crust
1) Pre heat oven to 335 degrees.
2) Mix all the ingredients in a mixer BUT add the pecans last.
3) Mix thoroughly by hand. Pour mixture on top of pie crust.
This is what it should look like:
4) Bake 70 minutes until the top is firm.
5) Let cool for 30 minutes before serving.
Happy Saturday. I’m currently in Atlanta visiting friends and family and working on some up coming projects. I’ve been on couple adventures this week and I thought I’d share them with you. What have you been up to the week before Christmas? Enjoy.
I got in town late Monday night. Woke up early Tuesday morning to drive to downtown Atlanta for my shoot with Dark Stripe Media. We were on location at an abounded train yard. We were blessed with lovely weather. After the shoot I went to the nail salon and got my nails done. Later that evening I met up with my friend Rachel from high school. My parents gave me two Justin Timberlake tickets for my birthday this June so Rachel and I went to the concert. Justin was absolutely incredible. He sang, he danced, played the piano and guitar. It was a very well put together show. Go see him if you can!
Wednesday I ran errands and picked up some Christmas gifts. I also went to Petsmart and picked up food, cookies, toys, and shirts for my two chihuahuas. I spent some time at home and started reading Perks of being a Wallflower. I also stopped by Whole Foods Market and picked up a Kale Smoothie and some lunch.
Thursday I had a shoot with Christina Kelley in Little 5 Points and on location at an abandoned green house near Emory. Later that day I went to see my hair stylist that I’ve been going to for several years. She worked her magic as always.
This weekend I’ve just been relaxing and spending time with friends and enjoying the holiday. I have lots exciting things coming for 2014!
