I try to make the recipes exactly as they are written the first time for a true review, but didn't add the pecans as I was serving rice that had almonds in it...didn't want to "over nut" us. The dish, however, was delicious and look forward to the next time to serve with pecans. I didn't think it was too sweet at all.
Didn't add as much sugar as called for. This dish was super easy and tasted good.
Way too sweet, I added salt and it helped, perhaps some dried cranberries would have helped to balance out the sweetness. The pecans got soggy, perhaps I didn't toast them long enough.
