Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

It is hard to believe that 2010 is coming to an end. We will be celebrating quietly with a few friends. Some of you might be going to larger celebrations, but over the years I have come to like smaller groups to ring in the "New Year." And you may be looking for something quick to make for your party or just to have with a drink. Teddy, gave me this recipe a few months ago and we have made it several times. The nuts are a hit and easy to make. Serve them warm or at room temperature. And let me know what you think.

Happy New Year!

Buon appetito,

Carmela Tursi Hobbins


2 cups unsalted mixed nuts
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper

Mix all the ingredients except the nuts in a small bowl. Pour the mixture over the nuts and mix well. Spread out on a jelly roll pan and bake at 350degrees for 10 minutes.
