Fudgy Pecan Pie Bars

There are some situations in life where food becomes a haven.   It’s a been a rough week for the Bejelly household as we lost our beloved friend and dog, Yuki.  I don’t normally go into the ins and outs of everything that happens in my home.  I prefer to let the recipes be the shining star of my site however I just could not pretend everything was happy cakes and normal  in this post.

Yuki was my first dog.  My husband and I found him at the Humane Society when he was 6 months old.  He was awesome.  Sweet, smart and somehow crazy at the same time.  He loved the Little at first sight even though his experience with children was limited.  He was 11 and suffering from Cancer and we had no idea how quickly he would go downhill.

When I came up with this recipe I was thinking of him.  I didn’t just want photos and memories to serve as reminder of the years that he graced our lives.  I wanted a recipe that comforted me the way that he did.

Ok, this is all rather depressing for such a lovely recipe but I am a firm believer in celebrating the love that graced your life.   I made this with love for Yuki and I’m just happy that it  came out as delicious as it did.

Hi there! Looks like a great recipe, and I'm planning on making it for my Grandma's birthday ;) Wondering- can the ghee be replaced with solid coconut oil?

My heart hurts for you, losing a pet is just the worst.

But luckily, these seriously look amazing; my mouth is watering, drooling on the keyboard.
