Girls' Night In

Sometimes you just need a night in with the girls.
The rules are everyone wears comfy clothes (read:  yoga pants and no makeup) and minimal planning.  No fancy appetizers...just bring what you've got in your pantry (excluding Fruit by the Foot Hollie...LOL).

My favorite go-to snack are my spiced pecans.  These are adapted from Cooking Light and they are SO yummy.  They work great for girls' night in, conquering mall sickness, or avoiding the dreaded drive thru.

Peppery Pecans

  • 1 tablespoon  sugar 
  • 1  tablespoon  Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon  kosher salt 
  • 1  tablespoon  butter, melted 
  • ½  teaspoon  ground red pepper (or more if you want more of a kick)
  • ½ teaspoonon  ground cinnamon 
  • 1  pound  pecan halves 
  • Cooking spray 
Preheat oven to 325°.
Combine all ingredients except cooking spray in a large bowl, tossing well to coat. Spread mixture evenly on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Coat nuts with cooking spray. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Remove from oven; cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
