Spiced Nuts from AKL?

My parents just stayed a night concierge at AKL, and the spiced nuts in the lounge are sooooo good. Anyone know what's in them?

Here is a recipe for Disney's Glazed Almonds. Could it be the one you are looking for?

Disney's Glazed Almonds

1/3 cup butter
2 egg whites
salt
1 cup sugar
16 ounces whole almonds
4 tsp cinnamon

Place butter on 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan and heat in 325F oven until butter melts, about 7 minutes. Meanwhile, beat egg whites with dash of salt until frothy, then gradually add sugar, beating to stiff peaks. Gently fold in almonds and cinnamon. Pour almond mixture into jellyroll pan and stir, coating with butter. Bake, stirring every 10 minutes, until almonds are crisp, about 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Nope - these were both sweet and savory, with a little heat to them, and mixed nuts (pecans / walnuts / cashews / peanuts / almonds). Similar to this: http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._22642,00.html

I know this has probably been discussed here dozens of times but I just had to put my two cents in. The 'Ohana scalloped potatoes are sinfully good. We had them today with our ham for Christmas dinner. Has anyone ever tried them using half & half instead of the heavy cream???

I haven't tried them yet but am doing the Hazelnut potato gratin tonight and am horrified at all the cream going in. I'll be trying lower cal versions after Xmas.

Thanks for all the yummy coffee recipes, lyn - now is the perfect time to make them for guests.

Made the California Grill Lava Cakes last night and they are awesome. My sister was in ecstacy.

Another Diser made them for C-Eve dinner and gave them the same rave as you. I have not made them yet I would probably try the half & half myself.

Two German Potato Soup Recipes

I came across these two German Potato Soup recipes that sound yummy-and perfect for a cold, snowy day! One is from the Plaza Restaurant and the other from the Concourse Grill.

German Potato Soup: Plaza Restaurant

1 Medium onion, sliced
1/4 cup butter
3 Medium leeks (white part only)
2 lb (about 6 medium) potatoes
1 Ham bone, any size
1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
6 cup chicken or beef stock
1/2 pt heavy cream
salt and white pepper to taste
Croutons

Brown onions to a light golden color in butter in a saucepan. Clean leeks well and slice. Peel potatoes and slice. Add leeks, potatoes, ham bone, thyme and stock (or water) to onion. Cover and simmer until potatoes are very soft. Remove ham bone, discard. Cool potato/leek mixture slightly. Puree in a food processor or blender and return to pot. Add cream and cook a few minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with croutons.
Makes about 6 servings.


German Potato Soup: Concourse Grill

1 cup onions, diced small
1 cup celery, diced small
1 cup carrots, diced small
2 cups potatoes, diced small
4 Tbsp bacon fat
4 chicken bouillon cubes
1/3 cups leeks, diced
1 tsp marjoram
1 1/2 cups instant potatoes
4 quarts of water
Salt & white pepper

Saute onions, celery & carrots in bacon fat for 5 minutes. Slowly add water, bouillon, leeks & potatoes and cook at a rolling simmer for about 20 minutes. Add instant potatoes, marjoram and salt & pepper to taste. Simmer 15 minutes.

OMG, did you eat at our house????? I decided to bake a ham for dinner sice we had a rib roast last night and I figured that ham sandwiches would be good as we start to pack and organize. I also had to make stuffing/dressing (it's our new favorite, a Tyler Florence recipe that I tried for the first time at Thanks giving), recycled the asparagus casserole from last night and older DD asked for the 'Ohana potatoes, she had seen me print the recipe from this site. Well, she and I devoured the potatoes, younger DD dislikes cheese and DH was concentrating on stuffing. There are enough potatoes for Kelly and I if we don't stuff ourselves. I used the heavy cream since I had to have it for the stuffing, and I cheated and used the already sliced potatoes (think they're called Simply potatoes, they're in the refrigerated section at the grocery store). I also added more cheese, and would have probably increased the cream as well since I had a little over 1 pound of potatoes. Still, they were great!
