It is delicious and addictive, nobody is going to stop with one or two and…

Sweet and Spiced Pecans

…s were using corn syrup, my pie making sprit come to an end. According to me pecans are better tasting than walnuts, so I used them in banana bread and Armenian nutmeg cake etc when recipes called for walnuts.   Even though pecans are not as   rich in Omega fatty acids like Walnuts they are good alternative for walnut.  Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats. I have some pecans left even after making banana bread and Nutmeg cak…
