Are you planning on watching the Oscars this Sunday? My favorite part of the Oscar festivities is watching what goes on behind the scenes. I love to see what everyone is wearing, who is arriving in an electric car and what preparations are being made for the post-ceremony parties.
This year I plan on watching “Toast to the Red Carpet- LIVE” online. The show will stream live on the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Facebook page, 3:00-4:30 (PST) on Sunday, February 26th. All of the best part of the Oscars in one place- red carpet arrivals, celebrity chit-chat and movie themed recipes.
I plan on making a couple of recipes for that day- Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes and toasted nuts. To make the toasted nuts you will need 1 cup of raw nuts (I like pecans or almonds). Place them in a single layer in a dry pan over medium heat. While the nuts are warming up, whisk together 2-3 tablespoons of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, a dash of salt and chili powder to taste (I add about 1 tablespoon). Add the seasoned I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to the hot pan and stir to coat nuts. Stirring occasionally, cook nuts for 2-3 minutes. You will know when they are ready– they will smell so delicious you will be tempted to eat them straight from the hot pan! If you don’t care for spicy nuts, substitute the chili powder for the seasoning of your choice.
