we recently stocked up on some pecans at the farmers market. in addition to just a simple snack pecans are amazing in just about everything! the other night we had a pecan packed dinner. we had an apple and arugula pecan salad, pecan and mushroom risotto, and a pecan crusted chicken (can i just say joshua is an amazing chef!).
the recipe for the risotto and salad are joshua originals. you could easily use bag salad and add apple, pecans, and your favorite light dressing. for the risotto i’m pretty sure you can get some in a box at the grocery and then add pecans. but we used this martha stewart recipe for the chicken:
in the next couple of days i’m going to try my hand at sugared and spiced pecans.
