Sweet and Salty Rosemary Pecans

These past few days I have been travelling and I hate being stuck on a plane, train or automobile with limited choices of what to eat. As addicted I am to those highly processed snacks, I avoid them as much as I can. If I can travel with my own homemade food and snacks, then I know I will feel better at the end of it. Travelling also means time away from my kitchen, so I don’t have a new creation of my own to share with you this week.

I always pack some fruit to snack on when travelling, but I  recently came accross a new recipe from 101 Cookbooks that I just couldn’t wait to try. For this particular recipe, Heidi talked about her own recent travels and travel snacks. If you have not yet read her fantastic vegeterian blog, then I highly recommend you do so right away! She has wonderful recipes, pictures, and more to offer.

Her Brown Sugar Rosemary Walnuts recipe is so simple to make, that I mixed it up in a flash and baked them while I finished packing. Luckily I had everything I needed on hand – the advantage of keeping a well stocked pantry.

Well, almost everything… I did not have walnuts but it was an easy switch-in the pecans I had on hand.

I packed up one box for the trip and had enough leftover to make a few small care-packages, perfect treats for Thanksgiving that is right around the corner or even as host/hostess gifts! Wherever you go, whomever you meet, homemade treats are the best way to share the love (with other or even just yourself).
