A savory step-up for almonds

Photo via living a la modeAlmonds have a special place in my heart. I mean, without them there would be no almond paste or marzipan. And that would be sad. Really sad. But today I am breaking with my normally sweet obsession with almonds and am opting for a more savory and spicy treat. 

Luckily I had quite a few almonds on hand.  Roasting almonds is pretty easy and makes for a great gift. Just take oil, salt and a mix of spices, put them all together and bake for twenty minutes. Beyond simple. Today I am including a recipe that features rosemary and chili powder. They have been extensively taste tested and neighbor approved. Enjoy!
