tag: sweet and salty
August 20, 2012
You guys. I am so excited to share this recipe with you. I made it for the first time last week and immediately proceeded to eat the entire batch, standing up at the counter in my kitchen. Then I had to make a another batch so I could photograph it.
It couldn’t be simpler: nutty chickpeas, tossed in a little butter, sugar, salt, and spice, roasted until caramelized and crunchy. Sticky with honey, they’re so addictive I had to put the jar of them on a high shelf out of my sight so I wouldn’t eat an entire second batch in one day.

Our dear expat friends Jules and Alex are leaving Paris for San Francisco, so Tim and I threw a little farewell gathering for them. It was fantastic seeing everyone and sending the couple off with one last hurrah.
Lovely Alex is gluten- and dairy-intolerant, so I wanted to make sure to have lots of snacks that she could enjoy. And you know, wrap anything in bacon and it’s going to be heavenly, right? These were quite popular — lots of eyes rolling back in heads and quiet moments alone in corners, just tasting and chewing.
