This will be brief because it’s J’s birthday and I still have presents to wrap. But the cakes (yes, cakes!) are baked, the birthday granola (by special request) is cooling, and we’re ready to celebrate another sunny day and wonderful year together.
Whatever you’re celebrating this weekend, this is the season for enjoying the sunshine and hanging out with friends, and where there are friends hanging out, there are bound to be snacks. These pecans are sweet and snappy, with a little something special from the fragrant woodsy rosemary. (I won’t tell anyone if you hide a few away in your cupboard to throw in a spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese later this week. In fact, I’m going to go do that now.) The recipe below is a happy love child of this one and my favorite olive oil granola.
