Recipe Swap / Toasted Pecans
Hello out there! Thanks for stopping by!
We, in the panhandle of Texas, have been playing in the snow for the last couple of days! For two weeks now, snow has been in our forecast! Thursday, we finally had a 10 am start - yahoo! Those are the best kind of school days for me! LOL!
For this week's Recipe Swap, I've grabbed one of KV's recipes! He doesn't often cook, but when he does - awesome! He has made this recipe a couple of times already this year - 2014 and the pecans are SO GOOD! Savory and salty... YUM! It's SUPER simple - and you might already have the ingredients... Enjoy!
1 cup Butter; melted
6 cups shelled Pecans
Salt; to taste
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Pour the butter into a medium and mix in the pecans. Stir until pecans are well-coated. Arrange coated pecans in a single layer on one or two medium baking sheets. Sprinkle with salt. Bake in the preheated oven 1 hours; stirring occasionally - KV stirs every 15 minutes. Remove from heat, cool and store in covered container.
Learned a new word from all our WINTER weather - it's "Rime Ice".
Saturday, we woke up to a thick fog and frost "pricks" were EVERYWHERE - this was rime ice. It was BEAUTIFUL... lasted until mid-day and finally melted - It was so bizarre but so pretty on all the trees, bushes, grasses - every thing!
Wishing you a GREAT week ahead! We've got snow in the forecast again on Tuesday... Bundle up and take care! Remember to hug the ones you love the most, until next time...
This blog is mainly about our family. Kyle will do a "hodge-podge" of items. Melissa will frequently post recipes, art projects, pics, card projects, articles ... and the boys...The "A Team" hmmm~ we shall see! Let us know what you think. We love to receive your comments and emails! (~:
Blogging is fun and is an outlet - I am just like you! My days are full of "to do's", morning till night. Sound familiar? When I DO find the time in the day, I love crafting - totally into paper-crafting at the moment (6 years!). That's why my blogs are often full of the projects that I'm working on. As a mom to 4 males(1 at-home son, 2 college sons and 1 husband), that time is often limited. I have been creating art items, cards, doo-das, painting, claying, anything "artsy-fartsy" ALL my life. Each one different from the last. It is something I truly enjoy.
You could even say it is a passion. Part of that passion has been sharing with others and attempting to teach them - hence my 2nd job of teaching Art in the high school and often my clubs and other groups that I'm involved in - it's just who I am. I am very lucky to be able to live in a small town and share! So! Please don't think that I'm a "kiss up" or trying to out-do someone else... I'm giving to give... I make things to give - it's just me!
