Sweet, Salty, Spicy Party Nuts
Mixed nuts coated in a spicy sugar syrup, then oven-roasted until crunchy.
Paleo Toasted Maple Pecans
These pecans are a delicious healthy treat that is quick and easy to make. It can be served with lamb, over a spinach salad, on tasty muffins or as a snack while reading or watching a show. Kids love these as a snack!
This is one of my favorites not only to have on hand at home, but to pull together for a last minute hostess gift.
Cinnamon Toast Pumpkin Seeds
Excellent Halloween treat. All ingredients are approximate and may be adjusted to individual taste. Serve immediately while warm or later after cooling.
Orange Creamsicle Candied Pecans
These are a year-round favorite in our house. We've made several variations and still come back to this one as our all-time favorite. Hand-shelled pecans from Grandma's tree, with a vanilla-orange sugar coating that gets its depth from cinnamon, pepper, rosemary, and a bit of Kahlua® and Grand Marnier®.
Festive Nut Bowl
Festive Nut Bowl is so easy to make. Dried cranberries add color and a burst of tartness to the mixed nuts. It's always a big hit during cocktail hour.
Rosemary and Garlic Infused Oven Roasted Almonds
I get so many compliments on these almonds, and they're fun and simple to make. I leave most of the garlic and rosemary leaves in with the almonds. They add color and taste delicious, too. Salt the almonds to taste. Store in a resealable bag or airtight container. Delicious paired with cheeses or all on their own. I always leave a small dish of them out for snacking and find myself having to refill it often.
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds Teriyaki Cajun Style
My family and I have always loved these during the pumpkin season. Over the years I've come to tweak it to our tastes. More flavor and a little more spice, but NOT overdoing it. I hope you love this as much as we do. Trust me on the seasonings. Seems to be a lot, but SO very worth it. I usually get quite a bit out of these with everyone just passing them around. You can make a bigger batch of these (which I have done many times). Just adjust the ingredients to the amount of pumpkin seeds you have. This a great snack for parties or family night.
