Did I fool you there? Did I sound like I actually knew what I was talking about?
I am a sports girl. I love my soccer, hockey, track and field and many other sports, but football is not my cup of tea. I can’t stand to play it and don’t even get me started about watching it. But one thing I do like is a good old party and even better, hosting a party. In this circumstance, and this one only, I can tolerate some football.
When planning any type of entertaining menu, you can count on Life Made Delicious to inspire the best of celebrations.
I wanted to try out one of the many Chex Mix recipes that LMD offers. I love party foods that promote a handful here and a handful there. I’m also a sucker for both sweet and salty types of foods.
SWEET AND SPICY HONEY NUT CHEX MIX
Yum! This recipe not only marries sweet and salty but also adds a nice little zip with cayenne pepper and cumin. The raisins create an alternate texture and some sweetness to the mixture, rounding this out as a super satisfying party treat. And bonus, it’s gluten free!
