Thanks for an awesome way to dress up sweet peas for a Christmas dinner. Followed steps in recipe. two notes though. Since the packets of frozen peas are are not thawed, then plan on longer than10 minutes for frozen peas are tnder while cooking peas in skillet at medium. To toast choppen pecans, placed on cooking sheet at 350 degrees for about 7 minutes.
