It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already here especially since December arrives just a few days later. How did that happen? With Thanksgiving falling so late this year, we have three weeks to get everything done for Christmas. Which in my book means it’s time to start cooking. This is my favorite time of the year, and I love to enjoy it as much as possible without feeling stressed. While I’m not one of those people who shops before Thanksgiving for Christmas presents, I do try to get a jump on my holiday baking and cooking, including hostess gifts and teacher gifts. This year I have a new addition: Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Nuts. They are a snap to make and freeze fabulously. Plus your house will smell amazing in the process. What better way to get in the holiday spirit?
These Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Nuts are a great addition to any holiday spread and make a perfectly thoughtful gift from something rather ordinary. They have a smoky pop of flavor from the chipotle, a subtle heat from a touch of cayenne and finish with the fragrant rosemary. Did I mention they are addictive? Whenever I make them, people are finding their way back to the nut bowl just to grab a few more. Great protein without the carbs – perfect for this indulgent time of year. What’s your favorite hostess gift? I’m always looking for new ideas!
