Candied Cinnamon Pecans

 These addictive pecans are coated with a crunchy cinnamon sugar coating. You can't eat just one!

We first tried nuts similar to these, years ago when visiting the kid's grandmother in Western NY. Since then I've been seeing them everywhere. At sporting events, at the mall, in Cabela's (Canada's version of Bass Pro Shops). I don't make these often, because nuts are so expensive, but 3 yrs ago I decided to make some to add to my SO's mom's Christmas basket. I had purchased her favourite wine and had added crackers, caramel corn, and these pecans to the basket. It was one of her favourite gifts that year!

My kids go crazy for these, and when I bring them to family gatherings they disappear quickly. I think it is the salty, sweet, crunch combo. I mean who could resist it? These are super simple and almost fool proof to make. However, they are so spectacular your guests will be blown away and amazed that they are homemade. Our favourites are Pecans, but you can use your favourite type of nut!

Candied Cinnamon Pecans

1 lb pecan halves
1 egg white
1 Tbs water
1 tsp vanilla
1 C white sugar
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pink sea salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

In a small bowl combine the sugar, cinnamon and sea salt and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg white, water and vanilla; until frothy. Add the pecan halves and mix to coat with egg white mixture. Add in the sugar mixture and mix well, to ensure all the nuts are evenly coated.

Spread out evenly, in a single layer, onto 1-2 baking sheets.

Bake in a preheated oven, for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Let cook completely before packaging.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil
