Cinnamon Pecan Mylk

Enjoy a sweet harvest twist to non-daity milk substitutions. {Confession:  The pecan mylk was consumed well before the picture was nabbed.   So, in effort to “spice things up,” your lovely blog author totally dropped a sub-in-a-cup photo above to do just that.  Actual pecan milk is richer in color and flavor.  Note to self:  snap the pic before you glug, chug and devour the … Read More Cinnamon Pecan Mylk
