    A wonderful way to dress up walnuts! The combination of spices was very unique and enjoyable. I did have some trouble getting my walnuts fully coated - I'm not sure whether this is because I had to use walnut pieces instead of halves, or whether the amounts listed were a little too conservative. This is my first time with a recipe like this so it may just be that I didn't try hard enough too! I'll definitely keep the recipe on file and see if maybe next time I can improve or improvise to make it perfect.

    LOVE IT! perfect balance of sweet and mild spicy. doubled the recipe and covered the walnuts perfectly. cant wait to share some of the spoils with my neighbor who keeps sharing her walnuts with us.


Like to cook tasty but not too fancy food. <br> <br>Love seeing what cooks from all over are doing. <br> <br>I am a school nurse in an elementary school and I really love the job. It's so much to fun to see children grow from kindergarten to grade five and I love working with the families in my school. Like every school, food plays a part in our "social life" and we bring food to celebrate birthdays, sport events (many K-state fans at school) and the holidays. Anyone who works in a school is,in part, an overgrown kid, so we also get to celebrate halloween, St. Patrick's day and Valentines day. <br> <br>Right now, my kitty Cartman is gracing my page. He was named by my son. His brother, Mistoffelees, also lives with us and I love their unique personalities.
