Tuesdays With Dorie: Pecan Sticky Buns

Sometimes life is sticky.

Sometimes your husband’s department will have a major upheaval days before you’re due to have houseguests.

Sometimes you’ll experience one of those uncommon side effects from a medication and discover there’s such a thing as drug-induced pneumonia.

Sometimes your three year old will test you like he’s never tested you before while your inlaws are visiting.

Sometimes you’ll wonder if you can list him on ebay.

Sometimes the coyote howls outside will make you cry and worry about bullies and you’ll get out of bed to clutch your child’s tiny hand and kiss his sleeping cheek.

Sometimes you’ll try to remove the thermometer from a freshly roasted chicken with your bare hands.

And sometimes a bit of butter, flour, and cinnamon will make everything better.

Thank you Dorie, Julia and Nancy for showing me that sticky makes us stronger . . .

Sticky shows us what we’re made of  . . .

And sticky can taste oh so sweet.
