Today is Pecan Day
One of the most delicious nuts ever is the pecan. Even if it is a walnut look alike, the taste is completely different and much more sophisticated and tantalizing. I will share a simple recipe for warm nights, hot days and days when wanting to lose weight gets in the way of tasting food.
This concoction is a Middle Eastern recipe made in Old Testament days. Variations, changes and innovations are allowed. You can use whatever you want in this recipe but will not help as much with weight loss as the original recipe does.

Literally means: With joy and health!
It is an exhortation and a prayer for happiness and a healthy life directly from the food.
