      This is such a special recipe. Easy to prepare, flavour to knock your socks off and very impressive looking. Just be careful not to burn the pecans. :) Thanks Sandi for such a wonderful recipe. Made for the March Herb/Spice of the Month in the Gardening Forum

      A great way to prepare fresh green beans. The beans were prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until the final prep making them perfect for a dinner party.
