Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Poor Man's Pecan Pie

My DH is a Physical Therapist, so he's always meeting people with cool stories and cool recipes. Last month he brought home this "Poor Man's Pecan Pie" recipe after enjoying the decadent dessert at his office. We made it for our community group, and we loved it.

It's called the Poor Man's Pecan Pie, because it doesn't have any pecans in it. But it tastes like it does!! It's a great conversation starter at a party!

2/3 c sugar
2/3 c softened butter
2/3 c minute oats
2/3 c dark karo syrup
2 eggs beaten
1 t vanilla
pie crust

mix all ingredients together and bake 30-38 minutes at 350 degrees
let it cool, then enjoy with friends
