  • I think the calorie and fat content are for the whole recipe. It makes 6 servings and if you divide those numbers by 6 it makes more sense. The only fat in this is the pecans. It sounds really good though. - 11/5/08

  • Sounds delicious, but a lot of calories and fat for a side dish and a vegetable; perhaps the preserves and pecans? - 11/5/08
