Recipe: Rosemary Roasted Pecans
Some dear friends threw us an engagement party last Saturday. One of the couples in attendance, Lilo & Tom, gifted us a large jar of “Lilo’s Southern Love Nuts.”
They are now gone. Yes, gone.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday- three days. Really, is that all?
Well, they’re that good. Enjoy.
