Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

I've been trying to get in the habit of doing one special activity with each child during the week. Luke's activity, after Kayla went to bed, was to learn to crack pecans with Mommy.
Sometimes the pecans didn't come out all nice and whole, but he still had fun. I'm glad I chose the carpet since it was such an easy thing to vacuum it up. However, I'm starting to feel my age, (ha) my back wasn't very happy the next morning.



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large egg white
  • 3-5 tablespoons Triple Sec Orange Flavored Liqueur other strongly flavored liqueur
  • 4 cups pecan halves


    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    2. Prepare a large cookie sheet by lining it with foil and spraying with no-stick spray.
    3. Combine the sugar, salt and cinnamon in a bowl, set aside. Combine the egg white and the liqueur in a large bowl, stir well with a whisk. Add the pecans, and stir well. Add sugar to bowl, and stir well to coat.
    4. Spread onto cookie sheet in a single layer.
    5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pecans are lightly toasted and browned, stirring every 10 minutes. It will look like the coating is coming off (it's not). Stir from the outside in to keep pecans on the edges from burning, and watch closely since sugar burns easily.
    6. Remove from oven, transfer immediately to wax paper to cool. Pecans keep for two weeks in an airtight container.
    7. Makes 4 cups.
