Fabulous Find: Nutty Girl Inc.

I had two favorite finds at the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show this weekend and am excited to share them. (Stay tuned for the other Fabulous Find tomorrow.)

If you like healthy snacking (and I know all of us do), Nutty Girl makes the “The Original Rosemary Nut Mix” – a delicious mixture of almonds, pecans, walnuts, dried cranberries and a secret ingredient…. ROSEMARY!


Now, this is not just any ordinary mix of nuts… This is so delicious I ate my way through the entire 6oz box at my desk this morning!! They are lightly coated with butter and brown sugar resulting in my favorite combination of salt and sweet all in one bite.

They come in two basic sizes – 6 oz and 12 oz and you can buy them online here.

And for you serious nut lovers, there are even 5 pound bags available for throwing in your freezer to ensure you never run out!

So cliche, but so tasty

With the onset of fall, tasty field greens and lettuce mixes are back in full blast. I love a simple salad of mesclun mix, wafer-thin sliced apples, blue cheese crumbles and toasted pecans. Lightly tossed with a homemade balsamic dressing… mmm good!
