Sweet Chilli Roasted Cashews

I love blogging and the opportunities that have come my way. But in the same breath I find some of the offers I receive to be totally ridiculous. It seems that PR Agencies do not take into account that there are costs involved with writing and maintaining this blog. I do my best to only make things we will eat so I am not wasting money on ingredients. I was recently asked if I wanted a voucher from a delicatessen in another town. I often visit the main city centre and so replied in the affirmative. However when the voucher arrived as an attachment I was told in the email it would expire in December. As I had no plans to travel into Cape Town before it expired, I replied to the PR person that I would probably not make use of it, and did not open the voucher. Turns out that for less that the cost of the petrol, they wanted me to review the restaurant, and use the voucher to offset part of the costs of the meal. I think this is totally nuts! What is not totally nuts is this must make recipe for roasted cashews. They are perfectly crunchy, deliciously sweet and the chilli comes in at the end! I hope you will find yourself making these sweet chilli roasted cashews and that you won’t think I am asking too much of you to make them.
