With Thanksgiving just around the corner, eating healthy may not be the first thing on your mind. However, due to the health-giving benefits of pecans, that Turkey Day dinner need not be a complete calorie-counting bust.

One holiday that should be absent of stress is Thanksgiving, a time when families gather to express their love and gratitude. But for those tasked with the job of preparing the Thanksgiving meal that, too, can become a source of stress.

Are you familiar with the term "progressive dinner?" It's a social occasion at which the different courses of a meal are eaten at different people's houses.

In this post, we're going to do a pecan-inspired version, except that instead of going to different people's homes, we're traveling across the county to enjoy exquisite recipes prepared by some of America's best chefs and great restaurants.

We have the rich history of Louisiana to thank for much of the success of the pecan industry. And without this booming industry, it is unlikely that pecans would have blossomed in popularity across the world and given rise to so many delicious pecan treats.

The other day, a customer of ours, a woman named Virginia, asked whether or not pecan trees produce flowers. That's an excellent question. Due to their lack of petals, greenish color and small size, the flowers are barely distinguishable from the rest of the tree, so few people notice them.

With this post, we begin a series on general pecan knowledge brought to us by Classic Golden Pecan owner Bill Bowers that we're fondly referring to as "Farmer Bill Says."

In the series, Bill will answer questions about pecans that come from customers, provide tips on growing and consuming pecans, and share insights gleaned from many years in the pecan business.

In this inaugural post, Bill talks about planting pecan trees in your yard.

Along a big bend in the Mississippi River and about a half-hour's drive from Oak Alley, the subject of a recent post, is another jewel of Louisiana's Great River Road, Houmas House. In fact, the plantation home turned bed and breakfast and museum bills itself as the "Crown Jewel" of the road. Built in 1840, the house was designed in Greek Revival style.

It may seem obvious to say, "Pecans are gluten free." Nuts of all kinds are because gluten is a protein found in grains, not nuts. But if you or someone you know or love has to maintain a gluten free diet, you know how hard it can be to find truly delicious gluten free foods that might otherwise contain pecans.

Some recent good news for American Pecan Growers: they will not be forced to comply with unnecessary regulations or restrictions that would place an undue burden on the industry. These restrictions, part of the recently proposed Food Safety Modernization Act, would have prohibited the harvesting and marketing of pecans where livestock or animals, like deer or squirrels, have lived.

Chances are, the last time you ate pecans you didn't think much about how they got from the tree to your table. Take the shells for example: Like other tree nuts, pecans grow inside a shell, and before you can eat them, that shell has to somehow be removed. Here's a short history of pecan shelling and how automation of the process has impacted the industry.

Today pecan pralines are a hallmark of southern cooking, with nearly infinite variations of flavors and recipes. Originally from France, pralines were first made overseas with almonds instead of pecans. It wasn't until the dessert was brought to Louisiana in the 1700s that the pecan praline was born.

Looking back through history, to a time before intercontinental travel was easy for the average trader - never mind the average person - it's hard not to feel sorry for the countless millions of people who may never have had the chance to enjoy the healthy, delicious crunch of pecans. But there is much more to the story behind them...

Today is one very special day of the year. It's when we pecan lovers take a moment from our busy lives to stop and observe a grateful (and hopefully delicious) moment of silence in honor of one of our favorite treats: the praline.

The pirogue boats of southern Louisiana have a long history, dating back to their creation by Native Americans and adoption by French colonists. These one or two person crafts resemble canoes, but are light and small enough to traverse swampy areas where other boats are easily stuck. Today the most common use of pirogues is to quietly reach remote, pristine areas for fishing and trapping game.

Louisiana is famous for its food and its music, and every year we combine the two into one of the most popular festival seasons in the nation. From April to December our state features gatherings of some of the finest Cajun, creole and zydeco musicians, and cooks whose creations celebrate the rich heritage and diverse flavors of the region.

As much as we appreciate our fathers year-round, we don't always remember to tell them just how much we care. These gifts from kids are simple (and not too messy) to make, with a homemade touch makes them all the more meaningful.
