Heart Healthy Holiday Spiced Nuts

Dear Friends,

      Tis the season of gifting and this recipe, from my dear friend Gloria, is the perfect present. She has been making these Spiced Mixed Nuts for thirty seven years and they have become the highlight of the holiday. Although I am gifting some this year, I must confess that I eat more than I give away. I am a muncher during the month of December and throughout the day I reach for a handful of these tasty nourishing nuts to satisfy my habit. Yes, they are that good. So go ahead give them a try. You will be happy that you did. Thank you Gloria.

Enjoy the Season and I will be posting many holiday recipes,


PS. Hopefully Gloria will share more of her delicious recipes, especially her breads. She is a master bread maker.
