For the second Iron Chef Challenge, with Pear and Nuts as the secret ingredients, I decided to make some Pear-Pecan Sandies. Although they are super-yummy, they aren't as "sandy" as I'd like, so I'm going to hold off on giving out the recipe until I can get it more how'd I like it. Soon enough!
Also, I finally got my oven to stop smoking when I turn it on! I think some Earth Balance spilled over from the muffins I made last week, or maybe some of the veg. oil from the doughnuts, but SOMETHING was in my oven that caused it to smoke up all scary like. I cleaned it super-thoroughly last night and it seems to have done the trick. I hate it when that happens!!
