new creative uses

A few days ago I made Orange Candied Pecans. I made far more than I anticipated, and I’ve been looking for creative ways to use them. A handful makes a great snack, but I was looking for other ways to use them.

Feeling creative, I sprinkled some of the orange candied pecans into our salad at dinner: romaine hearts with dried cranberries, candied pecans and a light balsamic vinaigrette. The Gavin Rating: “Most excellent.”

The Swedish Meatballs got an “Excellent” while the Kase Spetzle rated a “let’s try a different cheese next time.” Dessert (molten lava cake a la mode) was “Fantastic.”
