Caramel Pecan Sauce

Caramel Pecan Sauce | simplykierste.com

 You guys.  Do you want to experience a little bit of heaven?  You must try this decadent Caramel Pecan Sauce, you won't be sorry! Confession.

I can't believe it's been 10 years since my darling little boy was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. He was in kindergarten, and had just turned six years old--it seems like yesterday and forever ago all at the same time.  What a roller coaster it's been! A couple of weeks ago, we visited the town in Michigan where we lived for many years. We happened to also visit The Diabetes Center where we received our very first training all those years ago, and the memories just came flooding back.  I also realized just how far we had come, … ...read more
