Week of Thanksgiving Day 4
In New York City this time of year the smell of candied roasted nuts fills the air on just about every corner. This is my own little recipe that brings a little NYC to the country. It's the perfect sweet treat take away for family and friends to enjoy after the festivites, or on the drive home.
