The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Miss Lucy's Pecans with Dates and Goat Cheese or Cream Cheese

These are wonderful as appetizers with cocktails or wine before dinner!

2 cups Pecans

1 Tbsp Packed Brown Sugar

1 Tsp Salt

½ Tbsp Ground Cayenne pepper

2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Goat Cheese or Cream Cheese (Personal preference)

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix. Roast the pecans on a baking sheet in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove pecans from oven and immediately drizzle olive oil on them, tossing the pecans as you do this. Then toss pecans with the dry ingredients.

Personal preference might require less Cayenne pepper. You may toss the pecans with more brown sugar if the cayenne is to strong or you want more sweet. Salt is also a personal preference, you may want to add more.

Serve the pecans as a snack or combine them with dates and goat's cheese or cream cheese.

Take one date and slice it down the center (horizontally), pull slightly apart and then fill the date with plain goat's cheese or soft cream cheese. Place one pecan on top of the cheese. Put a number of these on a plate surrounding a cup with extra pecans.

Pecans can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator to have on hand for surprise visitors!

For a very simple pecan snack when you in a hurry try this:

Roast 2 cups of pecans in the oven at 300 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately put them in a bowl. Take two Tbsp of room temperature butter and immediately toss the pecans with the butter until the butter is totally melted. Then toss the pecans with salt to taste. DO NOT MELT THE BUTTER AND THEN ADD TO PECANS.
