I feel like it?s been forever since my last blog post, and I’ve really missed it.
Behind the scenes, I’ve spent this past week working on three incredibly exciting new projects – It’s been a really wild week, and I?m looking forward to sharing the news with all of you!
I hope you will be as excited about it as I am ?
Meanwhile, I don?t want to leave you without a recipe, and so today I?m sharing my family?s recipe for crockpot cinnamon pecans that we make every year for the holidays.

That?s my goal with all of the recipes I publish here on the blog. It?s a sign of a successful healthy dessert if the people to whom you serve it don?t feel like they?re missing anything and would gladly pick the healthy version over the original.
These nuts make an excellent gift; people appreciate it because it?s homemade and tastes delicious, and all you have to do is throw everything in the slow cooker and sit back as the machine does all the work for you!
(If you don?t have a slow cooker, I?ve also included oven instructions.)
