While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Laissez-les bons temps rouler - June 24 is National Praline Day!
American pralines are one of the finest sweeter-than-sugar confections to roll out of New Orleans. This Southern delicacy was originally brought to Louisiana by French settlers.
Some believe it was only improved by adding homegrown chunky pecans and rich cream to the sugar-butter candy mixture, giving it a creamy melt-in-your-mouth consistency.
Get a taste of the deep South by discovering your inner Scarlett O'Hara moxie and whipping up a batch of this tricky treat (the video helps). You can also make a praline topping that turns cheesecake simply divine.
One bite and a sweet Southern accent will be spillin' out of your mouth like molasses, sugah.
