Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

When we opted for an artificial tree, I felt slightly guilty that my kids would miss out on the true smells of Christmas.  So, I try making up for it with the smells of  baked goods, citrus potpourri and real pine wreaths on the door.  Now, I’m going to add Cinnamon Roasted Almonds on my cooking to-do list and mmmmh, I can hardly wait.


From Two Peas and Their Pod

Two Peas and Their Pod has a terrific recipe for Cinnamon Roasted Almonds to get your house smelling divine… AND you can eat the almonds too!

I remember smelling these while waiting for a downhill ski event at the 2002 Winter Olympics and when passing a street vendor in Beijing.  Another memory? The quote about cinnamon from Seinfeld

“Anytime someone says, ‘Ooh..this is so good! What is this?’ The answer invariably comes back, ‘Cinnamon.'”

    These look wonderful. I can nearly smell them! I’ll be making them soon!!!
    Your link (Get the Recipe HERE)doesn’t work, but I went over to the Two Peas page and found the recipe. Just thought you might want to know about the link.
