Are you a fan of the Barefoot Contessa? I'm a huge fan.
In college, I actually sent her a letter professing my love. Dorky I know. I wonder if she ever received it?
If you have never tried one of her recipes I suggest you start with this one:
Rosemary Roasted Cashews
1 1/4 pounds cashew nuts
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon melted butter
Preheat oven to 375.
Place nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until they are warmed though. Meanwhile, combine the rosemary, pepper, sugar, salt and butter in a large bowl. Toss the warm nuts into the rosemary mixture until they are completely coated.
Serve warm. (They are also good room temp.)
