Hi, friends!

So, let’s just jump right in today, shall we? pumpkin pecan pie bars

Sometimes I struggle with how real and personal to get here and usually stick to the embarrassing stories of my life. Because I pretty much can’t do anything without embarrassing myself. Ever.

Anyway, I mentioned last week that we were going to Disney. We should be there right, riding spinny things until I puke and begging the kids to please, just once, ride the Tower of Terror with me. Instead, we’re back in Illinois with family, which isn’t such a terrible place to be, except the reason we are here is that my husband’s grandma just passed away.

She was diagnosed with cancer last month and things progressed so quickly. We’re lucky that we get to be here with her for a bit before she passed away. She was a huge part of our lives and we’ll all miss her so much.

It’s a sad time for my family, but we’re all so happy that we get to be together. Disney can wait.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and update you guys, because I know I talked up our Disney trip a bit and didn’t want you all wondering what the heck happened.

Of course, I couldn’t leave you without something tasty and since it’s approximately OHMYWORDSOCOLD out there right now (which I’m loving for now, but will be complaining about shortly), I had to go with pumpkin.

These pumpkin pie bars are a riff on a pumpkin pie and topped with sweet, crunchy pecans. Tasty, man. And these are perfect for sharing since bars are a lot more portable and easier to eat with your hands. Love these bars and I think you will, too!
