As we continue to navigate through the holiday season, take some time to try a new recipe! You can put a new spin on an old tradition or grab a cook book, pick the prettiest picture, and give it all you've got. Whichever holiday you choose to participate in celebrating, take this opportunity to enjoy the time you spend with others and use the winter's energy to try new things and create! Here is a recipe I adapted from several sources and combined to make my own over Thanksgiving:

Sweet and Spicy Pecans

1 tablespoon butter 1 ½ tablespoons honey
2 cups whole, fresh pecans ½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon ½ teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon crushed peppers 2 pinches brown sugar

Combine butter and honey in a saucepan over medium heat.

When the mixture is melted, mix in pecans.

After the nuts are coated, sprinkle the nutmeg, cinnamon, sea salt and crushed peppers over the top.

Place on a lightly greased baking pan and bake in the oven on 300 for 7 minutes.
Stir and flip the nuts and bake another 7 minutes or until toasty brown and aromatic.

Sprinkle brown sugar over the top while the nuts are still warm. Chop or serve whole.
