What I’m listening to: CNN News Coverage… what a week it has been
I affectionately call these ‘Hometown Walnuts.’ These are special walnuts that are so kindly shipped up to Alaska straight from dear friends in my hometown in Northern California. Then, I used olive oil that is also made right in my hometown. There is something wonderful, something just right, about pairing ingredients that come from the same region, the same soil. It’s just meant to be.
The most tempting snacks, to me, are a balance of salty, sweet, and savory with just a hint of heat. The combination of crunchy, salted walnuts with sticky honey and fragrant rosemary is simply addicting. If you have unexpected company, or need to whip up something delicious in a jiffy, these come together quickly and are done in 10-15 minutes.
