Denise's Cinnamon Pecans

We have a pecan tree in the back yard that is producing like crazy this year, unfortunately the squirrels are enjoying more of them than we are but it still put me in the mood to make some pecan yummies even though I actually had a to buy a bag of nuts at the store.

There are only a few ingredients needed for this super simple recipe and the kids really enjoyed helping me measure them out and mix everything together. Of course they enjoyed sampling the cinnamon pecans even more so it was difficult to get them to wait until they were completely cooled.

What is the amount of evaporated milk used in this recipe? It just says 1/4 evaporated milk. Is it 1/4 cup? Thanks for clarifying it for me!

additives, preservatives. pesticides sprayed and the prepackaged meat is not worth discussion. clening products, laudry soap, shampoo, bath soap, sun lotion, skin cream? Are you aware of the infinitesimally small amounts of poison you and your children are taking in through your mouth, your skin….? Are you aware that is a well known fact that if you eat the USDA recommended diet, you cannot get enough vitamins and nutrients for your body (esp. as a child)
The average multivitamin gives little to your body because the composites are not absorbable, most exit as waste. Life is not a waste. Learning is not impossible. Ask your local college professors
