roast some nuts.

I highly recommend you roast some nuts. It's pretty quick and easy, and very tasty. These tasty almonds would be great for a party or for the snack drawer. This was my first time roasting my own nuts (versus buying them) and I am convinced this is the way to go.

I found the recipe after some internet searches and then merging a few recipes and adding a few tweaks.

Rosemary Roasted Almonds

  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh rosemary (picked from my herb garden!)
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • a few shakes of ground pepper
  • 2 cups raw almonds. 
  • Mix it all in a bowl and spread single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 325. They come out a little shiny, but it works out. Allow to cool to room temperature. So easy!

 Since I was bringing these tasty morsels to a party, I packaged them up pretty. And then proceeded to eat quite a few handfuls while I waited for my ride. (thanks Nicole for picking me up!)



  1. Then your ride ate a few handfuls on the way to the party...and they were delicious!

  4. I wish I could've had some but they don't really workout with braces. I love how you presented them too! Great packaging.

  5. They were my fav snack.
