I'm underwhelmed.. Maybe I saw too much hype from Giada and a few people who tried these. They were good, but I won't make them again. I followed the recipe exactly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love cashews. I thought this was ok. The rosemary over powered the delicate taste of cashew. The cayenne was a little too hot for me. But still a nice choice to have on the table item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of my favorite recipes! Stole from my sis-n-law a few yrs ago. Always a hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this four times and it has been a major hit each time. I have never used cashews but have used a combo of walnuts, almonds and/or pecans. Easy and delicious. Will be making this for the Big Game. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious, but flavor faint for our house...just double up all ingredients except the nuts. Try with smoked sea salt for extra yum :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful, quick, and easy. No one could stop eating them. I did 2 lbs and they were gone by the end of the party. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My guests didn't eat them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are so easy and delicious. I brought them to a Christmas party and everyone went nuts!...sorry, I couldn't resist. They have a little heat but it mellows after a few hours. I didn't serve them warm, and they're actually better this way because the nuts have more crunch once they cool. item not reviewed by moderator and published
