Hi it's me. Sorry I've been MIA for the past two weeks, but we were on vacation in Boston and Maine and suddenly had to come home because of Hurricane Harvey..and well you know how that went. Life has been interesting to say the least and while our community is still in complete recovery from the storm, I have started to resume somewhat of a normal routine again. My days have been running together and I haven't been sure what day it is for the last week, let alone what season it is! I hear fall is approaching, even though the weather here refuses to let me believe it until this morning where there is, dare I say, a crisp in the air which feels fantastic! With fall, comes all things comforting (which Houston could use right now) and my easy candied pecans are just that...basically a hug in food form.
We all could use a food hug right? I make a big batch of these candied pecans to keep on hand for topping salads, like my butternut squash, apple, and kale salad, for topping vanilla ice cream, and I also love to make a batch for to have for snacking! They are perfect to whip up before game day or any other get together because they are so easy and every one loves them!
The smell of the pecans roasting wafting throughout your house is one of the things I love most about fall! The smell of cinnamon and sugar and pecans makes for one heavenly scent that will make your home smell so lovely before guests arrive! Make a batch of these beauties asap, but just beware they are highly addictive!
I originally made this recipe for eHow and you can find the full recipe and tutorial up on their site!
I can't wait for you to make a batch of these! I hope you love them as much as I do!
