As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Crazy for Nuts

These delicious, sugar and spiced nuts get their clever name from a clever friend. I made them this weekend for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner party. They're a perfect bar snack or dessert treat. I'd recommend creating individual portion-controlled packages if you're planning on keeping these around the house...Crazy for Nuts are quite addictive!

Crazy for Nuts
Makes ~20 quarter cup servings

Ingredients

1 egg white
Splash of water

1 1/2 lbs raw pecans, almonds, walnuts (or any of your favorites, just make sure they're unsalted)
1/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Directions
Whisk together egg white and water in large bowl. Mix in nuts. In separate bowl, whisk together sugars and spices until no lumps remain. Sprinkle sugar mixture into nuts and toss to coat. Place nuts on foil-covered baking sheet. Bake in 300 degree oven for about 30 minutes, stirring about every 10 minutes. Enjoy the aroma!
