5 Recipes to Celebrate National Pecan Day

I have a love hate relationship with the pecan. It was with this nut that we discovered my daughter had a slight tree nut allergy (which she has since grown out of thankfully) and that was scary! BUT then well, Turtle Chocolates – YUM!

Did you know that this nut is a plant based source of protein? Not to mention manganese and copper, which according to Nuts.com are critical minerals for growth and metabolism. There are lots of reasons to eat Pecans – if you’re not allergic – so why not celebrate the day by cooking up something yummy.

Here are 5 recipes I found that look so good, I might even consider spending time in the kitchen to make!

  1. Pecan Sticky Buns. I’m a BIG fan of cinnamon buns, especially the messy kind. This recipe from Allrecipes.com look messy and delish.
  2. This Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake from one of our founders, JustAnotherEdmontonMommy.com features the fantastic pecan!  
  3. On the lighter fare side of things, adding Pecan’s to salad is a delightful touch. GeniusKitchen.com has a Cranberry Pecan Salad with Feta Cheese recipe that makes my mouth positively water!
  4. Yummly.com snazes up your Salmon with this Pecan Crusted Salmon.
  5. Lastly, where would we be without something Turtle inspired? RockRecipes.com has an Easy Turtle Cheesecake – which includes 3 of my favourite food related words. 😉

Obviously, it doesn’t have to be a special day to cook or bake with pecans but I’ll take any excuse to eat cheesecake! Anyone want to bake some and bring it over?
