Cinnamon Sugar Pistachios

Easy to make Cinnamon Sugar Pistachios recipe!  These are perfect for healthy snacking! I love gifting these in mason jars for the holidays too!

Cinnamon Sugar Pistachios

Pistachios are something of a necessity for the holidays in our house.  As a kid Santa would always leave me a bag of red pistachios in my stocking that I would eat right up with my pistachio red stained fingers.   As a adult I still get pistachios at Christmas time, but now I like adding some cinnamon sugar spice to them.  

There is something about the smell of cinnamon that really gets me in the holiday spirit and has me humming Christmas songs!

Sweet Pepper Soup

I was craving fresh soup a few nights ago so I came up with this Sweet Pepper Soup recipe.   I was going to make my typical stuffed pepper soup but I wanted something more creamy.    This soup tastes fantastic with fresh sweet peppers, and it’s absolutely gorgeous to loook at!

The recipe calls 1.5 pounds of sweet peppers and 1 jalapeno pepper. The jalapeno pepper adds a tiny bit of kick, but not too much heat at all.  In fact, even with the jalapeno pepper, this soup is completely family friend for adults and kids.
