It is not my intention to throw my husband under the bus, but…I had to make these toasted walnuts 4 different times in order to get them photographed before he ate them! I would toast them, leave them on the counter to cool and come back to find half of them gone! So a couple of days later I made another batch, left them on the counter to cool and…you get the idea. Finally, I rather snapped at him to leave the d@#! nuts alone long enough for me to photograph them!

Suffice it to say, as soon as the walnuts were done with their photo session, he went right back to his nut grazing.

And don’t you love it when some so simple is so good? I mean, we are talking toasting walnuts with olive oil, salt, and minced rosemary. That’s it. But that simple combination is an example of that adage, ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.’

  1. I made the rosemary walnuts as gifts and they are delicious. I have not been able to get the gift tags to come to my email despite completing the form times 2.

    1. Hi Anne-Marie,

      I’m so glad you enjoy them as much as we do. I’ve forwarded the gift tags to you. Let me know if you haven’t received them.



  2. I’m sure this is a silly question, but I not sure whether to start with roasted or raw nuts. I will buy the nuts at Trader Joe’s. Also, have you tried this recipe with cashews.

    Thank you for all of your clever ideas!
