Do you over-complicate things? You know, like when you go into Starbucks to order your regular, simple cup of coffee, or even a complicated one and you always know what you are going to get but you end up WAY over thinking what you are going to get . . . For example: “Should I get decaf today? Just in case I want to cut back on my caffeine intake, you know, since I’m pretty much perpetually dehydrated. But wait, there was also that study saying that the caffeine in a cup of coffee prevents Alzheimer’s, or maybe it was something else. . .Or no, wait, I always get a latte, and I should totally save those calories and get a black coffee because I know they are serving a good blend today, but hold on, will I like it without lots of cream and sugar?!” Insert nail biting here . . . Oh, oh you don’t do that? It’s just me? Uhm, well ok. . . Since I’m a crazy pants, I have to try to keep it simple, and there are some really simplistic things in life that I absolutely enjoy. Let me go ahead and list a few that you are going to have to like before we can be friends. . .

1. Honey

2. Cinnamon

3. Cashews

Ok, Ok. . . So maybe we can still be friends if you happen to not like one of those things, but I will probably question your taste for hmm. . . . let’s just say forever. Do you love honey?. . . Yep! Do you love Cinnamon? . . . Yep! Did we just become best friends?. . . YEP!! For real though, I have a super simplistic recipe for some yummy cashews that you will not have to over complicate, and I know you will love. I used my Vanilla Bean Sugar in place of the plain raw sugar in this recipe, and still added some vanilla extract, which lent a flavorful burst of yummy in your mouth without being overly sugary, not to mention they make your house smell divine. I hope you enjoy making these guys, because I sure did ♥
