Rosemary Spiced Cashews

December 14, 2009

I was at my friend Nicole’s wedding last weekend, and one of my friends stole my camera momentarily and started flipping through my photos only to discover dozens of pictures of pots of this and that. Long story short, I’ve been doing lots of cooking but hardly any writing. But here I am again, with all sorts of ambitions to start posting lots of yummy things.

Which brings me to this treat: rosemary spiced cashews. My family postponed our Thanksgiving celebration this year to the following Saturday, as my sister, a second-year resident, was on call on turkey day and thus had to spend her day away from us, instead watching Home Alone over and over again (um, best thing ever?) and going out for dinner. Two days later, our whole family came to our house not just to celebrate the holiday all together, but also to celebrate my sister’s newly-announced engagement (woo!) with her soon-to-be in-laws.  My mom has a tried-and-true Mama Z version of all of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes–a particularly awesome stuffing recipe and a luscious green bean casserole among my favorites–and I didn’t really want to step on her culinary toes at the dinner table. So I thought I might make a snack to serve along with the hors d’oeurves.  This recipe really couldn’t be easier or more addictive.
