Sugar Coated Pecans
I have made these many times with the changes of vanilla for the amount of water, a full teaspoon of cinnamon, and 2 egg whites instead of one, with the normal amount of salt. It gets raves every time...but this time I did one more thing that made a difference: I had no pan spray in the house and used melted butter instead to grease the pan. It actually made for a better, richer flavor than before. Give it a try! Thanks to Carolyn and everyone here for such a great recipe.

Shrimp Paella
Only had some "Spanish" rice mix for this, so used it, and added some cumin because of that. It was a little soupy the first time, but tasted great; the leftovers were the perfect texture! So I wouldn't decrease the liquid unless you are eating an entire batch right away. The chicken broth adds complexity, so just reduce amounts of both borth and tomatoes instead of eliminating the broth altogether.

Microwave Pralines
I tried this recipe when I was making a batch of Sugar Coated Pecans from this site (always awesome). After reading the reviews, I was unsure about the wattage of my microwave so I set the cook time for 6 minutes, stopping at 3:30 to stir, and then cooked 3 more minutes, one minute at a time. Each time I used the cold water soft ball trick to check, and at 8:30 minutes it was done. Incredibly easy!! I used butter as I didn't have margarine and added 1/2 cup of pecans to cut down on the sugar part of each one, and they were perfect. They got rave reviews from everyone, even folks who weren't praline fans and tried them because everyone else said they were good. Give it a whirl!
