June 24, 2014: Happy International Fairy Day, also known as Faerie Day. Or any other way you’d like to spell it. Keep an eye out for wee celebrations and magic in the air. It’s also National Pralines Day today, and I confess, I learned some things with this one! My only experience with pralines has been Pralines and Cream ice cream from Baskin-Robbins, so I though that all pralines were candied pecans. Turns out that not only were pralines originally candied almonds (which then expanded to include pecans), but the term praline has grown to mean all sorts of sugary candy made with nuts and sugar syrup. But no matter what shape it takes, pecans plus sugar equals delicious in my book.
