Happy Halloween!  It has been a great start to the holiday fun.  I am still pecking away at the computer but, only 2 more weeks in a cast!  Thanks for all the thoughtful notes of recovery! G&H has great new help and we are excited about the upcoming parties.  Weekends are filling up fast so please call ASAP if you need help for your party.  (The first two weeks in December are already booked!)  We will be getting our baskets and Spicy Candied Nuts ready for shipment in the next few weeks for teachers, family, friends, and for yourself! I love this time of year!  It’s so great giving great gifts to others and ourselves!

Today I am working on new spices for the candied nuts.  I want it sweet but with a bit of a kick.  Try your own batch with different spices you may like.  Here is what I came up with and they are fabulous~ (We still have our original nuts too) 🙂


1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon hot paprika

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Zest of one lemon

2 cups walnut

1 egg white


Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees.

Mix spices,lemon zest and sugar in a small mixing bowl.  In another medium bowl, stir egg whites, then add walnuts.  When your walnuts are coated with the egg whites, add the sugar/spice mixture.  All of your nuts should be well coated.


Bake for 30-35 minutes, mixing halfway through.  The nuts will be dry to touch when cool and not sticky.

Have fun with all the ghosts, goblins or little lady bugs!
