The ingredients are inexpensive, but the Pralines taste rich. They make the perfect gift in a vintage tin or atop an antique milk glass plate that she can keep when the candies are gone.

"Escape Route", NBC's latest reality show offering is really a long product-placement for Ford, disguised as an internet-based Reality TV competition.
