There’s nothing like the spirit of the deep south, and a long, slow southern drawl to get a girl into the Christmas spirit.

The second holiday recipe that I offer up may take a couple of test runs to perfect, but the testing will be delightful!  If  the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, the first detour is his sweet tooth.

As with all of my recipes, I provide you with a little mood music following the instructions.
