Happy Valentine’s Day Y’all!  Battling all of these northeast winter storms, and just having had to shovel nearly a foot of snow makes me long for New Orleans – where today’s high will be in the mid-60’s.  (Jealous)  One of the home-town treats that I’ve been missing are pralines, or “pecan candy” as native New Orleanians call it.  It’s usually my staple souvenir whenever I travel home and friends or co-workers ask me to bring them something back.
