I very much like Emeril but always was a little hesitant to give his cookbooks a try because I - falsely - assumed that I would not be able to adopt the recipe to the dairyfree {Galactosemia} we need to follow.  Boy, was I wrong.  Emeril's Potluck Cookbook is packed - and yes I mean PACKED with amazing recipes perfect for our next potluck, and they are all completely adaptable to the girls diet.  YAY!!!  How exciting is that - I cannot tell you just how happy that makes me.

There are so many fantastic recipes. Black Bean Soup {yes, our girls to eat beans and legumes}, Asian Broccoli Salad, Oven-Poached Salmon with Pink Grapefruit and Tarragon Sauce and so much more...I am bringing two different items to today's Potluck.  Spiced Nuts and Proscuitto Breadsticks.  The girls really wanted to make the breadsticks with me, and Ron really likes nuts.

The recipe for the Spiced Nuts could not be any easier plus they are super delicious.  They get a huge thumbs up from Ron and the rest of the family. To make the recipe dairy free/Galactosemia safe the only change I need to make was swap the butter with Vegan "butter" (I use Earth Balance)

Spiced NutsEmeril's Potluck page 37
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
   4 cups unsalted mixed nuts, such
      as walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and almonds
   4 tablespoons unsalted butter
   6 tablespoons brown sugar
   1 teaspoon salt

1. Mix spices and reserve.
2. Heat the nuts in a dry skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to toast, about 4 minutes.  Add the butter and cook, stirring, unit the nuts begin to darken about 1 minute.  Add the spices, the sugar, 1 tablespoon water and the salt and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens and the nuts are glazed, about 5 minutes.
3. Remove the nuts from the heat and transfer to a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, separating them with a fork.  Let the nuts stand until cooled and the sugar has hardened, about 10 minutes.  Store in an airtight container.
