Saturday Recipe Swap- Pecan Garnish

This recipe was given to me from the parent of a former student. I absolutely love it. We all know we need to eat salad (I lived on veggies for about 7 years before I lost my taste for them...really need to work on that again.), and having a garnish like these pecans makes the salad that much better.

Pecan Garnish

Ingredients and Directions:

  • 3 tbsp butter (melt in pan)
  • 4 tbsp Splenda brown sugar- mix with melted butter until all melted
  • 1 tbsp water- add and mix well
  • 1/2 tsp honey- add
  • 1 cup pecans- Stir in pecans. Keep turning to coat. Let cook for a few minutes- maybe 5 on low heat.
  • Spray Pam on a flat surface baking pan. Pour nuts on it to cool.

We have had Cousin Belinda here for a few days. It has been so nice spending time with her. Tonight, the grandparents, Uncle Jim, Aunt Faye, and Belinda will be celebrating Addie's birthday in a small family dinner. Lots of cooking to do. It's off to the kitchen for me.
