Salty Nuts

In need of an app to bring to a party? A quick snack to take to a flick? Roasted almonds with Lavender Rosemary salt is my go-to, get-together-dish regardless of the occasion. It's simple, easy, cheap, and always a hit.

And even better is that it pairs with bubbly, beer, or a glass of wine. At the theatre.

Roasted Almonds* Recipe:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Unleash raw almonds onto baking sheet, and generously coast with olive oil.
3. Place sheet in oven and roast for 22-25 minutes, turning occasionally until they are a dark, golden brown.
4. Take out of oven, and sprinkle nuts with Lavender Rosemary salt* while still hot.

* Pecans and walnuts are great substitutes.
** Almond Cardamom salt works equally as well.


  1. Well... you won first place at the food bloggers' event for these, no?!

  3. oh yum...I'm so in love with sea salt...especially the flavored ones! Love the look of these almonds...wanna gobble them up!
