Simply THE best spiced nut recipe I've tried. Use in salads, for baking, in a bowl to go with appetizers. Makes a nice holiday gift.

"Mom brought these to Jamie's wedding shower! Yum!" ~Leigh

The Stewarts drove all day, and pulled into Logan just in time to join us for the "Firsts.... candles" part of the shower- everyone picked out a candle for Jamie and Mitch to burn on an occasion of a "First". M.O.M. brought birthday candles for Jamie & Opa's shared birthday, mom picked out "First Advent" candles, the Weyerers (Jamie's godparents) were worried about traveling with candles, so they brought a beautiful, moving wooden statue of a couple that ended up being the cake topper! ~Barb
