Okay guys, so this year, 2017 to be exact (ahhh I love saying that), I’m working on embracing my ‘southern roots’. As you guys know, I’m New England through and through but it’s fun learning about the traditions, lifestyles and foods of different regions.
When I lived in San Diego, I embraced, well…wellness, to be exact. I embraced that sunset yoga, green juice shots, almond milk coffee, organic hemp bars, drybar ever Saturday morning, kind of life.

I‘ll admit, I’m not going to complain about California lifestyle, waking up everyday to 70 degree weather and enjoying your morning coffee on the boardwalk was great, but I knew it wasn’t my forever place. You guys know me pretty well, and as you could assume the California life was too summer sexy for my taste, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it while I was there.
So while Matt & I know Texas isn’t our forever place, that’s not going to stop me from buying cowboy boots, getting corndogs at the Texas Fair & cheering for those Longhorns.
No matter where you are living, even if you HATE it, it’s important to take it in, because each region comes with it’s own benefits.
To be honest, the California lifestyle is close to impossible to maintain in my New England hometown, the closest Drybar is actually 106 miles away from my house (yup, I actually googled it). So enjoy where ever you are, while you can.
Okay so I’m starting to embrace the year and a half, Matt & I have left in Dallas by learning the best of southern cooking, or shall I say baking! When I was looking for the perfect southern snack I instantly starting looking for recipes with pecans ( you know those southerns, they loveeeeeee pecans).
So when I learned about the southern love for Praline cookies I decided to get my hands dirty and give it a try.
Preheat oven to 350°! Stir together all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, until blended well.
Drop cookie dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, make sure to make it a heaping tablespoon, as my cookies ended up on the smaller side.
I would also recommend flatting the praline cookies out a tad, before popping them in the oven
Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes. Let those praline cookies cool on a baking sheets for 1 minute! Next remove your praline cookies to a wire rack and let them cool completely.
As always, throwing in 1 cup of semisweet chocolate morsels into the mix, is always an option.
