July 12th National Pecan Pie Day

I love pecan pie, probably my most favorite pie of all kinds made. Though it is normally associated with holidays it can, and should, be available all the time. Sweet and nutty, crunchy and gooey, all at the same time. It is primarily a southern dish originally introduced, in one fashion or another, by Native Americans who had been using the pecan for more than 8,000 years. The pecan by itself is healthy, maybe not so much when we make a pie out of it, but who cares… it is soooo good!

How to celebrate – Have some pecan pie! Try chocolate pecan pie. Get a southern cooking recipe book.
