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.
- 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.
