A photographer was coming to the house, and by the way I was cleaning, scrubbing, dusting, organizing and arranging, you would have thought our home was about to be featured in the pages of a glossy National magazine.
I set out water, orange juice, freshly baked Glazed Pecan Bars, a large vase of fresh flowers and my loveliest plates, napkins and glasses.
I took one last glance around, and upon deciding everything was as good as it was going to get,  I ran for the shower.
In the 15 or 20 minutes it took me to wash, apply lotion, perfume, makeup, clothes and shoes, the photographer came, took pictures of my husband in his favorite space and left - our home and every single one of the pecan bars.

The picture that appeared in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 325F.
Combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Press into a 9 by 13 inch baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Top with glaze.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon almond extract

Combine all the ingredients for the glaze, mix until smooth. Spread glaze over the cake while it is still hot. Cut into bars once cool.
