garden 013 copy copyHi Everyone!  My name is Donna.  I live in Pelham, Alabama which is located about twenty minutes south of Birmingham.  I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a niece, a cousin, a granddaughter, a friend and for twenty-nine years I was even a great-granddaughter.

I have been visiting the land of blog for a while now and I find that it has so many wonderful things to offer.  It has the most incredibly delicious food from every culture imaginable, art and craft that only inspire and for a land of so many, it has the friendliest people you could ever know.

So yes, that’s right!  I have decided to become a permanent resident.  Where else can you find all of this?  I hope to soak in all of its diverse culture and pass on what I learn to others.  All the while doing what I love more than anything else…..creating.  Thanks for visiting!

Your friend,

    Hi Donna!

    So great to meet you here in blog-land. I got through your Jan. 23rd blog post, and after wiping the drool off my keyboard, I had to hit “Follow!” I can’t wait to see what else you can inspire me to make. I love to cook and am always looking for something new to try. So great to make a new food-loving friend!

    Be well!

    Hi Donna, love your blog. I just checked out the valentine jelly pops – they look adorably girly and fun.

    I’m going to give them a try when I’m feeling sinful🙂

    • sugaredpecan February 14, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

      They are really a light dessert but that’s why you could eat the whole platter and that’s when it becomes sinful….lol.

    So good to meet you, Donna! You are lovely🙂

  10. TerrifiedTastebud March 13, 2012 at 9:56 pm #

    Hi Donna! Your blog site is so well-put together, and some of your recipes have made it onto my ever-growing list of things to try🙂 Your king cake brought back lots of memories… grew up near B’ham too (Trussville) but my college roommate from LA introduced me to the craziness that is king cake! Live in CO and no one knows what they are here😉 Will be making some biscotti soon- thanks for posting!

    • sugaredpecan March 14, 2012 at 9:28 pm #

      Thank you so much for your kind words and for stopping by my blog. I am thrilled you have found some recipes that you want to try! It is a small world isn’t it. I work near Trussville where you grew up. If you make some of the recipes please do share with me. Thanks again!

    Thanks for reading and liking my blog! I absolutely loved the “glass of milk for the kiddies”. I have 4 children ( they all think they’re “only’s”) so I love special tips like this with which I can spoil them once in a while. I’ve been peaking around at some of the other posts- what a treat! Lovely photography too. Well done!

    • sugaredpecan May 17, 2012 at 10:45 pm #

      Thank you for such sweet comments! The kiddies really do love treats like this don’t they! Thanks for visiting my little blog and I look forward to keeping up with you as well!

    Hi! Thanks so much for liking my post and following my blog – I have been trying to thank you and let you know I’m following you now, for about 15 minutes but I keep being distracted by all the great recipes. Chicken Satay?!?! I LOVE that and have always wanted a recipe. The great thing is, I have all the items I need – and then there is the Buffalo Chicken Rolls and the CHEESECAKE. My goodness, I knew it would take me an hour to get through everything so I stopped to thank you before I forgot my manners. So glad to meet you. Kelli

    • sugaredpecan August 1, 2012 at 8:15 pm #

      I am thrilled you like so many of my recipes!!! It is nice to have a new blogging friend. Thank you!
