A CANDIED CASHEW CHRISTMAS • YouTube

AS A WRITER WHO IS EASILY DISTRACTED, I find relief and words in the middle of the night when my distractions are asleep. To fuel my all-nighters, I pop candied cashews as I type between 12 and 4 a.m. Here is my holiday gift to those who crave these sweet, salty and nutty nibbles anytime in the day and throughout the year. As a Christmas bonus, I also show you how to prepare a “fancy” pear and goat cheese salad with the sugarcoated snack! THANK YOU for following my food blogging adventure this year. Here’s to sharing more in 2010! With Love From Texas, amy december 24, 2009
