Simple Roasted Almonds

Happy Tuesday!!

Success is about what you inspire others to do!

Success is about what you inspire others to do!

I love this one! Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own agenda and our own theories or ideas of what success is and we forget — It’s so much more! This was a great reminder for me!

Today, I am trying something new and super cool!

Technique Tuesday!!

As with most cool new things I would love to be able to take credit — but with this one I cannot! My dear friend, fellow registered dietitian and all around cool person, Caroline, came up with this idea for a fun way to help others learn simple kitchen techniques.

I feel like I’ve always heard people say….

“I’ve always wondered how to do that”


“For some reason, ___________ has always freaked me out”

— With that last one, ‘people’ is ME!

So to kick off ‘Technique Tuesday’ I am posting one of my easiest and most favoritest techniques.

Simple. Roasted. Almonds.

No funny business, nothing fancy, just almonds.  I almost feel like it’s too easy and simple to post – But I’ve realized those are usually the simple things that people (ME) don’t know how to do but add so much flavor or depth to the almond. Yes, I said depth 🙂

Simple Roasted Almonds:


  • 1 pound of raw almonds


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spread almonds evenly over cookie sheet.
  • Place almonds in oven and set timer for 10 minutes.

Check when the timer goes off to see if they are done enough – I am a firm believer that everything tastes better done-er, so I like mine a little on the “really roasted side”.  One way  you can always tell when the almonds are done… Your home will get the slight aroma of popcorn — Seriously,  minus the buttery smell of course.
