  1. I liked this recipe alot. But I did add 1/2t onion powder and 1/2t cayene pepper. Just to kick it up abit.
  2. These were FABULOUS! I cut down on the spice just a bit, as I was afraid it would be too overpowering :-) I really enjoy spiced peanuts and such, but when you make them yourself, they are 10 times better! I know many people who would really enjoy these....and I plan to make up a few batches for them :-) Thanks!!!!
  3. These were pretty good, but I would have liked the flavor to be stronger (personal preference, I'm sure). I'll try making them again with a bit more of each of the spices. I just spread the nuts on a cookie sheet, drizzled the melted butter/garlic mixture over them, and sprinkled the spices over top. Mix them around with your hands, throw them in the oven, and you're good to go!
  4. Great recipe! I used this with almonds and put them out with drinks for company. They ate them all up, now I have to go make more!! The only change I made in the recipe was to substitute Splenda for the sugar. A winner, Evelyn!

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
