Tonight, for the ninth year in a row, I made the amazing candied pecan recipe I got from one of my favorite people in the world, Danielle Villalpando.

This was the first Christmas that I can remember that we didn't get together with our beloved Villalpando family (Danielle's husband, Dan, is Josh's oldest friend in the world & I've adopted them as my own). Schedules and distance and time got between us this year. But every single time I make her pecans, I remember how much I adore them and their beautiful family. Hopefully some of that love goes into the pecans and the receivers feel some of the affection I feel when I make them.

Merry Christmas, Villalpandos. Merry Christmas, all.

Pecans for our sweet mail carrier, Rosa.
