There are so many yummy foods associated with Fall. Crisp apples, warm pies, and of course candy corn. I love spices like cinnamon and clove and this is the perfect time of year to enjoy them. Here are some links to Fall friendly recipes for you to enjoy:

Honey Chipotle Pecans
This recipe doubles easily.
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
2 cups pecans
2 tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium skillet, combine honey, chipotle powder and cinnamon over medium heat until melted and combined. Add pecans and stir until coated.
Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until fragrant. Cool slightly (1-2 minutes).

Combine sugar and salt in a bowl, add pecans and toss until coated. Spread out on a piece of parchment paper and cool completely.
Be warned that if you have one…you will have another.
Store in an airtight container.

  1. Hi Wendy,

    I really enjoy your metal posts, and these recipes are a must-do, but you shouldn’t have displayed the candy corn as it is quite the downfall for me…I will eat the whole bag if no one’s around !

    I have a question for you, I hope you don’t mind. I know how to solder sterling and copper, but I am taking an online class creating brass or bronze reliquaries to fill with resin. We are to use plumbers lead free wire solder and I cannot get the hang of it, plus the fumes are terrible because the metal burns.

    The instructor insists on wire solder for a grungy look, but couldn’t I use regular silver solder instead? I don’t want to burn any more metal!




    • Sharon,
      I don’t use plumbers solder, but the instructor might be having you use it because the piece is larger. I’ve soldered brass and bronze, but both will get a coating of copper once you put it into pickle. That might be another reason the instructor is using the low-temp stuff. Try it, maybe it will work better for you.
