We have had a rough month. 2 Ambulance rides, 2 hospital stays, for 2 kids, ARGH! One good thing did come out of it though....a GREAT recipe. My friend Kim brought us dinner BOTH times (she really is up for sainthood). The first time she brought a salad with the best candy pecans ever. I have candied nuts for special occasion salads before but I have done them on the stove and it seems I always burn them or they go hard. These were light and crisp. As an added bonus they are EASIER!
Candied Salad Nuts
3/4 c brown sugar (please note you leave a lot of this behind)
1/8 cup sugar
1 egg white
1 cup chopped nuts
Mix first three together then add nuts. Spread on baking sheet lined with silpat (or sprayed real good). Bake at 350 for 30 minutes turning 1/2 way through.
