    You have a good ear.

    My DSD gets frustrated with me when I can't understand her Spanish or correct her accent. She'll ask me for help with homework, but when she reads it aloud... gah. It's bad....

    PEE-can? Really? :no:

    My MIL has pecan trees, so we have no shortage. I use them often for baking. My banana bread recipe is somewhat labor intensive, so I cheat from time to time. Take a...
