This unseasonably warm weather is making it hard for me to believe that Thanksgiving is sneaking up on us! But we’re taking advantage of the warm weather to air out our house of all the sick germs floating around.

My husband and I have had a wonderful head and chest cold this past week that has us going through an alarming number of tissues and cough drops.

So, when it hit 61 this weekend, we threw open all the windows in hopes that we could get rid of this cold once and for all!

Since I wasn’t good for much else, I also finally worked out our Thanksgiving menu. Planning dessert first, of course! Top of the list? Spiced honey pecan pie bars!

While these honey pecan pie bars still have sugar and butter in them, you won’t find any corn syrup and the amount of butter is significantly less than your typical pecan pie.

But don’t worry, you won’t miss the extra sugar and butter. These bars are rich, sweet, and full of nutty pecan flavor!

Plus, no tricky pie crust to roll out. Just press it in the pan and bake.

I’m all for making Thanksgiving dinner less stressful!
