SRC: Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Almonds

by Holly on February 2, 2014

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I received the Saturday Evening Pot , a husband and wife team creating and sharing different recipes. Since it was the Super Bowl this weekend I decided to do my spin on a recipe they shared for some Toasted Brown Sugar Almonds as a part of a pie topping. We love to snack on all kinds of nuts, especially almonds. Add in some butter and brown sugar and we are especially all over them.

For their recipe they used the oven and broiler to toast the nuts and melt the brown sugar onto sliced almonds. Since I was going for something more on the snack side of things I chose whole almonds. Since I am also notorious for having a mental block whenever the broiler is involved and have burned many, many things to a crisp, I decided managing this recipe on the stovetop was going to be the way to go for me.

I also can’t ever keep myself from tweaking and adding, so by the time I was done I had taken a simple recipe and apparently added some complications. It was worth it and the ingredients were simple. The stovetop method took some more work, but ultimately I loved how the sugar and spices ended up caramelizing into an almost brittle-like coating.

My Favorite 10 Recipes from Other Bloggers – 2013 Edition

December 31, 2013

2013. The year two-thousand-thirteen. About to become 2014. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with this year. There has been rough stuff and good stuff. I like to think there has been mostly good. I’ve learned a lot about life, a lot about myself, and a lot about who I want to be and what inspires me. […]

SRC: Snickerdoodle Bars with Double Cream Frosting

December 8, 2013

We’ve made it to the last month of the year…!? I’m both continually surprised that it’s here, and not at all shocked that it is. How I can be both things at once, is beyond me. Since it has been a year filled with sweets, I figured one more time, why ruin a good thing […]

November 28, 2013

I know everyone has been posting recipes and ideas for Thanksgiving, and that Thanksgiving is indeed happening tomorrow. However, at our house, the past month or so has been a lot more about getting through the days (semi) intact and trying to not catch germs. Although this seems like a stretch, I do occasionally like to […]

#88 – I hate Tuesdays

November 15, 2013

This week has been rough. For so many reasons. And it’s also been a blessing in some ways because it has brought me back to the beginning and reminded me once again what is important. I’ve had a really hard time getting this post written this week. I would have to say because I knew […]

Raised Doughnuts

November 5, 2013

This is going to be one of those quick and down and dirty posts. I’ve already been called a sadist and a vixen for my fluffy, doughnut teasing ways on Instagram and Facebook today. So, since fried dough, especially when covered in chocolate and sprinkles, needs no further ado, well, let ‘em rip! Happy National […]
