Normally Bobbie writes the posts that are published on Bobbie’s Baking Blog, however, today I am going to be writing a post. As long as I can remember I have been in the kitchen with my mom, we have had so much fun learning to create new treats for the special people in our lives. As my life transitioned from teenager to adulthood I have had the opportunity to share my feelings with my mom, and even when I thought I couldn’t overcome an issue that was happening in my life my mom was there to help me and encourage me. I am very close to my mom, I count her as one of my friends, and she also thinks of me as one of her close friends. I can share anything with her and she won’t judge me or put me down, she will just listen, and in turn I try to listen to her when she is telling me about events that are occurring in her life. She has taught me everything she knows about cooking, baking, and life. When we are in the kitchen we will spend hours gossiping and giving advice to each other, I think that being this close to my mom as taught me life values that I will carry throughout my life.
Bonding with your child/children is important, in my opinion, it not only gives the parent(s) a chance to have a relationship with their child/children but gives the child a chance to develop a friendship and talk to their parent(s) about the events that are happening in their lives. I can honestly say my friendship with my mom as helped me become the woman I am today.
With the Super Bowl around the corner my mom and I want to share with you a quick and easy snack that is perfect for guests at a Super Bowl party.
Candied Spiced Nuts:
◆ 50 grams/1/4- cup brown sugar
◆ 1/2-cup sugar
◆ 1/34-teaspoon fleur de sel
◆ 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
◆ 1/4-teaspoon cayenne pepper
◆ 1/4-teaspoon chili powder
◆ 200 grams/ 2-cups nuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and pecans
Prepare your mise en place and preheat the oven to 150 degrees C/ 300 degrees F.
Whisk the egg white to soft foam.
Whisk in the sugars and all the spices.
Toss the nuts into the egg white mixture, evenly tossing them in the mixture.
Once the nuts are evenly coated with the egg white mixture, spread the nuts evenly in a signal layer on a jellyroll pan.
Bake for 15 minutes toss the nuts once or twice, reduce the oven temperature to 120 degrees C/ 250 F. for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the nuts are dry and medium brown.
Remove from the oven and place the jellyroll pan on a wire rack, stir the nuts again, and cool.
Once the nuts have cooled completely serve them at your Super Bowl party. They might go fast, once you have one you can’t stop eating them!
