  • Heat 2 quarts of water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Place the almonds in the boiling water and let sit for about 45 seconds.   Drain and rinse and begin to remove the shells by rubbing them between the thumb and index finger.
  • Allow to dry on papertowel
  • Heat the oil in a sauté pan, over a medium heat, add the blanched almonds, stirring frequently until they are well-coated with the oil and golden. Do not have the oil too hot as the almonds will then brown and their middles will still be raw.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl to make the spice mix and add to the almonds and stir in the oil.
  • Remove and season with salt and pepper.

Lyssa joined the ABC 36 team in 2017 as Co-Host on Midday Kentucky, but she has been a part of the extended ABC 36 family for years… as the wife of Doug High, ABC 36 Anchor! Lyssa is now the host of ABC 36 Hometown Tours which features different places to eat, shop, and explore through out Central Kentucky! Hometown Tours airs every month on Good Day Kentucky, but you will still see Lyssa on Midday from time to time when she co-hosts the show. Originally from the small town of Willard in Northwest Ohio, Lyssa graduated from Kent State University with a Theatre degree. She and Doug moved to Lexington in 2000 following her spending 3 years in Nashville, pursuing a singer / songwriter career. A 12-year run in pharmaceutical sales came next, along with a family… two sons, Jackson (12) and Harrison (8). Lyssa has amassed a diverse on camera TV resume. She was the on camera commercial spokesperson for Legacy Nissan for several years and hosted a local car sales program for them. Corporate and commercial work for clients such as Sam’s Club…. Lyssa has acted in a Star Wars fan film, been a Disney paid extra in the major motion picture Secretariat (Don’t blink! She’s in the yellow dress in the stands at Keeneland) and most recently appeared in Doug Highs KET / PBS documentary on Lexington’s notorious Victorian era Madame, Belle Brezing. She has even appeared as a contestant on The Price is Right! (Yes, she did kiss Bob Barker, but do NOT bring up the Showcase Showdown!) Lyssa loves living in Lexington with her family and is a diehard Kentucky Wildcats basketball fan. She strongly believes in community service and after 9/11 the High’s responded: Doug joined the U.S. Navy Reserve and Lyssa trained the family Labador as an auxiliary Search and Rescue Dog, assisting Scott County Emergency Management for nearly 10 years. She brings to Midday Kentucky an often-missing and important perspective in the daytime local TV – Talk landscape, as a 40-something married, working mother.
