I’m not going back very far this week, because this past week has been so special. The celebration of the birth of the Son of God and the gift of salvation! This is from This past week on December 21:

Oh, Christmas Tree
Oh, Christmas Tree
How lovely are thy branches

For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
Wonderful,
Counsellor,
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Today’s Lagniappe: Never Fail Divinity
I had a little trouble with my divinity this past weekend. My wonderful friend from high school Tamara Gouge Ketter sent me her recipe for Never Fail Divinity. Tamara says, “This recipe was contributed to THE NINETIES COOKBOOK by the Garvin County, Oklahoma Extension homemakers by May Lacy. I made this for my dad who was a divinity aficionado and he loved it.” Thanks so much Tamara – no more trying to beat egg whites in the Southern humidity!

1 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup water 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 one pint jar marshmallow creme

Combine sugar, water and salt in saucepan. Cook to 250 degrees on candy thermometer, hard ball stage. Place marshmallow creme in large mixer bowl. Add hot syrup gradually, beating consistently until soft peaks form. Fold in pecans and vanilla. ( If it still seems too soft I had a little powdered sugar, maybe a teaspoonful.) Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm. Yield: 20 servings.

    Hi Christi…

    I’m so happy to hear that you really enjoyed your Christmas, my friend! I feel the same way…I just don’t want it to end so soon!!! Thank you so much for joining in with Sunday Favorites again this week…great post! So you did three Christmas trees? Ohh my goodness, I do good getting one decorated! Hehe! All three were so pretty but I think my favorite was the really tall, slender tree…done in red! Gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe for divinity. I must admit, I have never made it! I make all kinds of homemade candies but not that one! It sounds easy enough though…I suppose that I should give it a try sometime!

    Well my friend, so happy to hear from you today and that you had a wonderful Christmas!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design
