You guys… these Pecan Clusters have been a looonnngggg time coming.
I swear I have been wanting to try and make a homemade version of these bad boys for the past two months. I bought all of the ingredients, I wrote out a practice recipe, and yet they still somehow didn’t happen until just yesterday. Every Monday for the past 8 weeks I would tell myself… “this will be the week I make the pecan clusters…” and then week after week I would amaze myself with my skills in procrastination.
Holy smokes it’s December guys… can you believe it!? I swear just yesterday it was October and now here we are approaching mid-December, and it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been around these parts to share a recipe with you lovely people.
Of course it most likely feels like “forever”, because it has been a long time since I shared a recipe with you guys. It’s been one of those months where I just bake everything on a whim, without writing anything down, all the while thinking to myself “yes of course I will remember this recipe…” And then being sadly disappointed when my memory fails me two weeks later. Note to self: MUST WRITE ALL RECIPES DOWN AS I MAKE THEM.
Okay guys… I don’t know if you have noticed, but I am going through a bit of a homemade ice cream faze right now… oh you did notice? I guess it’s a bit obvious considering every second post of mine lately has been ice cream and most of my insta stories are me showing you my latest ice cream escapades…
Seriously it’s a problem. I swear my diet has become 90% ice cream over the past week, and I may need some serious help…
But for now, we are just going to ignore that elephant in the room (my ice cream addiction) because I made yet another batch of ice cream the other day, and it was just too damn good not to share!
My goodness it feels like it’s been a while since I sat down here and shared something new with you guys, so I am so happy to finally be doing this! We’re in for a bit of a rainy weekend here in Vancouver so I have some pretty big plans to finally share ta new recipe with your guys. After I’m through here, my kitchen will probably turn into something of a baking factory – as it often does on weekends when I have a bit of free time.
Fall is in full swing over here in Vancouver, so it’s safe to say I’m officially craving warm, comforting flavors & hearty snacks to get me through the chilly days. I always keep this Maple Pecan Granola stocked in our pantry at this time of year because one of Cole and I’s favourite things to snack on throughout the day is granola – and this granola is chock full of pecans, almonds, oats and maple goodness. So basically it’s downright irresistible to us.
