Maple Herb Roasted Walnuts

Try this quick (10 minutes) recipe for Maple-Herb Roasted Walnuts. They are crunchy and sweet-savory, kinda like candied nuts but more flavorful. You can use just about any kind of nut instead of walnuts: pecans, almonds, cashews or peanuts. We like to put these on our leafy salads. The walnuts are especially tasty on lettuce with crumbled gorgonzola cheese and a simple olive oil + lemon juice dressing

Saturday Smoothies: Orange Brain Shake

The Orange Brain Shake is legendary. It’s been featured on a television news broadcast. Also on many school mornings when my two sons were growing up. It’s one of the most popular smoothies I used to make at Florence Crittenton Home (for pregnant and parenting teens) and one of the most requested recipes from the girls after they leave the home. Simple to make, this smoothie has just 6 ingredients: oranges, almonds, lecithin, soy milk, ice and vanilla. Try it! I know you’ll love it
