    Super easy-just seemed like it took forever for the nuts to roast (I'm an impatient cook!)! But my husband liked them! And they make great gifts! Oh-I used olive oil instead-worked great. Thank you! - 12/21/08

    I changed the conola oil to Olive as I wanted to make this a bit healthier, but the almonds had an excellent taste from the spices. Love it!!!!!! - 6/18/09

    My whole family Loved this! I made it for Christmas gifts, and for my self too. I did use some walnuts I had on hand too, and it worked Great with them too. I then cooked ground beef in the skillet with all the spices left in it. Oh my. - 1/14/09

    Maybe use garlic powder instead of garlic salt? Sodium count is a bit high for that small of a serving. - 6/18/08

    I would roast almonds dry -without the oil as suggested - and add a little squeeze of lemon juice at the end to help the salt and spices stick. put them back in the oven that you have switched off to dry out; it adds a little tang! I have also tried ground coriander / cilandro for mild spicing. - 6/14/09
