Woo! From April 22nd to April 26th, Julie of Natural and Free and I are hosting a Spring Fling via a great little link-up party! Link up anything spring-- recipes, crafts, gardening, spring pictures... If it's spring-related, we want it (just no giveaways or other link-up parties, please)!

On April 27th, we will each feature our top three favorites! There is no limit to how many posts you can link-up, so feel free to bring on the Spring fever with your amazing posts! We can't wait to check them out!

This week, I'm going to be posting a lemon-flavored recipe a day. I don't know about you, but nothing says "Spring" like lemon! Yesterday, I shared a recipe for to-die-for Lemon Creme Oatmeal Bars. Today, a more savory, lemony recipe!

If you're a regular reader, you already know that I've been trying to send healthy, homemade snacks to John. I've sent him a lot of different nut mixes over the past 10 1/2 months. These are my own creation. I'm fond of them, but after trying them, John said he was partial to the cinnamon sugar nut mix I sent earlier this month. Try it for yourself and see which one of us has the better taste! 

You'll Need:
  • 3 cups raw, unsalted walnuts
  • 1 egg white
  • lemon pepper spice mix to taste (at least 1 tablespoon)
Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 300 F. 
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg white until it is bubbly and the white is broken up. Add nuts to bowl and mix until nuts are evenly coated in egg white.
  3. Mix in lemon pepper until nuts are evenly coated.
  4. Spread onto a cookie sheet and bake at 20 minutes without stirring.
