WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

2013 Food Challenge: Pecans

Ah, simplicity in life. 

This week called for pecans. Because I am not a fan of nuts -- only pistachios, only -- it is always even more of a challenge to see when others request them in a dish.

Crap. What to do?

I made buttered cinnamon-sugar pecan croissants and gifted them to a neighbor. 

This totally reminds of a decadent childhood treat: We would butter both sides of slices of wheat toast then, on one of the buttered sides, sprinkle cinnamon-sugar that we would whip up quickly in a bowl.


We would then sprinkle the mixture on one side of the bread and place the other side down on a skillet. When the toast began to brown, we added cheese -- a cinnamon-sugar cheese toast! Some people call it grilled cheese.

Yum. And, yes, I was more attracted to sugar in my younger days.


Pre-made croissants, a roll and then a turn in the oven and there you have it: buttered cinnamon-sugar pecan croissants. They smelled so, so good, but they were not my taste.

I hope my neighbors like them.
