    Thanks for a great recipe. Much cheaper than the ones at the store too.

    These are really tasty and I would say addictive. I melted the butter in the microwave and then mixed everything else together, spread them on a foil lined tray and baked them at 175 degree C in a fan forced oven for a total of 15 minutes giving a stir every 5 minutes. Thank you Melvin'sWifey for a keeper. Made for 123 Hit Wonders 2008.

    Yummy! These are quick and easy. I made two different batches, one that was mild for the children and a spicy one for the adults. For the kids, I left out the tabasco, and instead added 1/2 tsp smoked paprika. Both batches were insanely addictive. I will be making this again, for sure. Thanks, Melvin'sWifey!

    The best appetizer! I loved these (in fact I ate them all before I took a picture) but not to worry I will make them again very soon. Love the spiciness (and I added extra hot sauce). I heated everything up in the microwave and poured the sauce over the pecans and then baked for exactly 8 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.


I started cooking just by helping my Mom out in the kitchen as a little girl. I preferred baking over cooking, as I loved getting all into measuring things and stirring. I always got to stir! However in the past 5 years I've been the one responsible for making nightly dinners. At first this consisted of the same 10 or so dishes in a constant rotation, but that quickly became boring and I remembered how much my Mom would complain when I was younger about how she always made the same things and she never knew what new dishes to try! Obviously 20 years ago, Zaar wasn't around! I still cook a lot of the same type of dishes my Mom cooked when we were younger and I try to incorporate as much fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs into my meals as possible. However Melvin's favorite food of all time is fried chicken so... I make sure he gets a fresh vegetable on the side! My favorite cook book is my staple cookbook which is the old red and white Better Homes Cook Book. My only pet peeve about cooking is bland food! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg">
