With the turbulence in our world right now, I am finding reassurance in the simple and thoughtful. Sharing homemade gifts from my kitchen is an easy and thoughtful way to spread a little holiday cheer.

It will be a simpler holiday season this year, without the parties and large gatherings. Regardless, I have begun planning Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Right now, I am noodling what homemade food gifts I want to make and give this year. At the top of the list are jars of these Rosemary Walnuts. I made so many of these walnuts last year, but before I had the opportunity to actually give them to friends and family, my husband would devour them…a sure sign that they are tasty morsels!
