Gluten Free Holiday Wreath

Category: 
One tradition from my childhood that I always remember this time of year is my mother's Christmas Wreath.

I remember as a child my dad climbing the tall trees and shaking the branches. Then all us kids would run to gather up the pecans. Grandaddy would give us a little money for each bag of pecans we gathered. This is one of my favorite memories. My cousins and I had so much fun. This year my boyfriend is going to meet my Delta family for the first time at Thanksgiving and I am so excited. He happens to be a huge fan of pecan pie, so I'm sure we will be coming home with...
