Candied Mixed Nuts

This is the time of the year you can find large cans of mixed nuts on discount. This is also a good way to warm up the home when it’s cold out and make everything smell like cinnamon and sugar. It’s a perfect thing to bring for co-workers or to package up and give as gifts for the holidays.

Tea Latte Recipe

Any good black tea works for this, I am currently preferring an Irish Breakfast tea, my next choice would be Earl Grey. I usually drink these off and on instead of coffee in the fall and winter months.

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup boiling water

12 oz Almond Milk, Heated

1 teaspoon sugar(more or less to taste)

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instruction:

Boil the water and steep 2 teabags in your serving mug. Heat the Almond milk and dissolve the sugar into it. Use a milk frother to froth the almond milk if you have one. Remove  and discard the tea bags and stir in the vanilla, pour in the Almond milk and top with foam.
