Honey Roasted Moroccan Spiced Cashews


lest you think i've fallen off the face of the earth, hello. it has been awhile, hasn't it? i spent a few dulcet days in kentucky, where i immersed myself in late mornings, sleeping in while my darling love spent precious time with his kinfolk. the pace was decidedly slower, some moments punctuated with the gaiety only young ones can provide, and other moments of quiet solitude. exactly what i needed after the hubbub of the holidays and a trip to the motherland. (it sure is hilarious to require a vacation from a vacation, yes?)

one morning dw woke up with the notion to make snacks with his mom. i lazed in bed, either reading or watching something on the ipad -- because, you know, it's what i always figured southern belles did on monday mornings. this was dw's second time making this treat, the first time creating such a sensation among friends at an ice cream for breakfast social that i insisted he make it again, for his mom who is allergic to peanuts. it's a versatile recipe, you can add a pinch more of this or that, in accordance to your whim and available ingredients. personally, i like the sweeter notes with a slight burn of chili in the background.

snack on these immediately, or store in an airtight container.

happy weekend, friends.

recipe barely adapted from Anja's Food 4 Thought.



  1. Cashews! ("Gesundheit.")

    These look awesome, though since I have a problem stopping when I start eating nuts, I'd better not even attempt them...

  2. These sound amazingly delicious!

  3. I love cashews! These looks great.

  4. Oooo that's a whole lot of flavor packed in! I'm not a big fan of eating nuts but this sure did catch my eye. And I like the sweet kind with a hint of spice or salt too. Vacation from vacation is a must for me, that's why I always liked to get back home 1-2 days before heading back to work :)

  5. Meister, oh you should! they're a great snack, to entertain with, and nuts are good for you... (in moderation)

    Carolyn, yes! and they're so easy to make!

    taranii, thank you.

    shinju, thank you, i wasn't much of a cashew lover but i'm a convert now.

    beetlebuggy, i wasn't much of a nut fan either but seriously, once you figure out the health benefits of these things, and then you add flavor etc, they're irresistible.
