Hop on the Holiday Trolley

Holiday Trolley 12/5 Hop on the Northborough Holiday Trolley and get in the Christmas spirit! The trolley will be making stops at local shops from 11:30 am until 5:30 pm on Saturday, December 5th. Enjoy special discounts and complimentary snacks and beverages at certain locations. Be sure to stop at the Times Square Plaza (where Romaine's Restaurant is located) and come visit me! I'll be serving up my homemade Sugar Free Spiced Pecans, refreshing drinks and quick and delicious recipes to make your meals meaningful. In case you won't be able to make this festive event, here's the Sugar Free Spiced Pecan recipe so you can make it at home. It's a quick, easy and delicious snack recipe that would make a great stocking stuffer, teacher gift or perfect nibble to serve at your next party - and it won't spike your blood sugar because it's made with the all natural sweetener, xylitol, which is made from birch trees.

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
