  1. I had been assigned to bring toasted pecans to a meeting on Monday. I was having company on Sunday and needed a quick and easy recipe. This recipe turned out perfect. I did add some grated nutmeg. I found the consistency perfect. I had never cooked toasted pecans before.
  2. I could not get this to work right. I used pecans (3 1/4 cups) and they began to burn at one hour so I turned the crock pot down to 'warm'. They never did develop a CRISP glaze. The glaze does have a nice flavor, not as sweet as I expected (just right).


Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months.
