2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups pecans ,coarsely chopped

  2. In 3 -quart sacucepan, melt butter over low heat.  Remove form heat.  With wooden spoon, stir in brown sugar and vanilla.  Beat in eggs,until well blended.  Stir in pecans.  spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  3. Bake until toothpick inserted 2 inches fro edge of pan comes out clean,about  30 minutes..  Do not overbake. Blondies will firm as they cool.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
