Candied Bacon Pecans RECIPE

Hello my lovely friends! I created this mouthwatering recipe and I’m so excited because you will go nuts for these nuts! Caramelized maple bacon bits and delicious pecans covered with just the right amount of spices. These are addictive and dangerously good! I hope you try this recipe out. Try to save some for the next day too. I totally doubt that you will. 😉



1 Pack of Maple Bacon

1 Tbs Brown Sugar

1Tbs of Maple Syrup


2 Cups of Pecans

2 Tbs Brown sugar

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1Tbs corn Syrup

Coarse salt to sprinkle at the end

You will also need parchment paper on a cookie tray and a frying pan.


  1. Cut bacon in small pieces and fry them up until golden brown. Drain the fat and place bacon bits on paper towel. Keep that fat for another recipe! Bacon fat is so delicious. Place bacon back in the clean frying pan and add the brown sugar and maple syrup and cook for one minute until the sugar is melted. Set the bacon aside on parchment paper and let it cool. Bacon should be brown and not overcooked. It should still have a little softness to it. Don’t overcook the bacon.

2. In a clean frying pan toast the pecans. Not too long and don’t burn them.

3. When pecans are toasted add all the spices and sugar and the corn syrup.

4. Mix them together until everything looks nice and sticky. Take them off the heat and place them on the same parchment paper with the bacon. Mix the two together and sprinkle a little coarse salt on top while it’s still hot. Let this cool completely and enjoy! 🙂

*If you find the mix too soft you can set oven to 250 degrees and place the mix on a cookie sheet with parchment paper for 20-30 min.

I hope you try this recipe out.

Let me know if you do.


Have a beautiful Thanksgiving my wonderful friends.

Thank you all for being so kind and amazing.

Sending you all love and positivity.

orange banner blog post

Happy Thursday! I’ve created a lovely Pick-Me-Up snack for today. I don’t eat enough blackberries and I really love them. This is a delicious one if you love chia seed pudding. I hope you try it out.



4 Tbs White Chia Seeds I use PRANA

1 Cup of milk (You can use what ever milk you like)

2 Tbs of Honey

6 oz of  blackberries

1 mandarin

A handful chopped up pecans for the topping.

This makes three servings.


How to make it:

  1. Mix chia seeds in a bowl with milk and honey. Mix very well.
  2. Pour it in three small bowls. Place the bowls in the fridge and let it thicken. It should take a couple of hours but I leave mine overnight.
  3. Wash the blackberries and add them on top.
  4. Add a sprinkle of pecans.
  5. Peel mandarin and add a couple to each bowl.
  6. Top it with a drizzle of more honey.

SARDO Li’l Oliver – REVIEW

blog titleHello my lovely readers! I am here to share with you the perfect back to school snack for kids. My eldest daughter is in grade 3 and she loves the green Li’l Oliver Olives. My youngest loves both black and green. We received Sardo Li’l Oliver Olives for review purposes and we love them! These are great! Perfect to put in the lunch bags for a great healthy snack. Let me begin by telling you a little about Sardo Foods.

 Sardo Foods

They specialize in Olives, antipasti, pesto, spreads, bruchetta and more. Sardo Foods aims to make gourmet cooking and entertaining easy. They are based in Bolton, Ontario. 
  These Olives are natural, free of sugar, fat, peanuts and cholesterol and they are delicious for snacking. They have no artificial flavours or colours, gluten free and no trans fats.  These cups make a perfect addition to a child’s lunch box without the allergy concerns that come with snacks that may contain peanuts.   “There’s a new snack in town, and it is an excellent alternative to sweet and salty snacks like granola bars or chips..these  Li’l Oliver packs are kid-tested and kid-approved” -Desiree Sardo from Sardo Foods
  I really enjoyed both green and black olives. My eldest didn’t like the black ones by my youngest loved both. Here is some interesting information!


-The Canada Food Guide recommends children under 13 get up to six servings of fruits and vegetables a day. About 16 Olives roughly 2 packs of Li’L Oliver, equals one of those servings.

-Eating Olives boosts your iron intake. Iron plays a key role in keeping you healthy and happy.

-Olives are high in oleic acid, which studies have shown reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.

-Olives are rich in phytonutrients, bringing added benefits for your cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, muscled, immune, inflammatory and digestive systems.

-Oleuropein, found exclusively in olives, is an antioxidant nutrient that has shown to decrease LDL cholesterol and protect nerve cells.

 I’m truly happy that I was offered Li’l Oliver olives for review purposes because my girls love them and this is a lovely way for them to eat olives without the fear of the seed. The Sardo Olives are pitted! Before I would have to take the seed out but with Li’l Oliver Olives I don’t have to worry about it! Now it is easy and fun too! I love the reward stickers also.  I really like how the olives are packaged and love how easy it is for the kids to open them. They are easy to open and nutritious for them too!
