I often blog about the simple things in life.  Today I wanted to talk about walnuts.  In baking people often purchase the already shelled version in the bag.  When on a hike the shelled version makes it into delicious trail mix frequently too.  But it is the walnuts in the shell that really intrigues me.  I love the unique texture of each walnut, like a snowflake.  They are both smooth and rough when picked up, and so protected that it requires a metal nutcracker to claim the delicacy inside.  It is an art to crack a walnut in a way where the edible bit stays in one piece, and somehow satisfying each and every time I accomplish this feat.  Often these nuts are seen in abundance around the holiday season, but I think it is a simple treat that deserves to be enjoyed all year long.


  1. I love adding walnuts to banana bread! Found you from the "Monday Mingle" blog hop. You can find me at www.lucasandmahina.com.

  2. It's really the simple things in life, isn't it? That being said, I truly appreciate your appreciation for Walnuts... even though I'm more of a pecan girl myself! ;)

    I'm stopping by from the blog hop and I hope you can stop by Gumdrop Pass and say hello when you get the chance.

    Have a good Tuesday <3
