For the Love of Pistachios

You know the routine: Costco lures you into trying new things with its low, low prices. Among my recent discoveries through Costco are Everbody's Nuts Salt & Pepper Pistachios. A long-time pistachio lover, the addition of pepper to a traditional, salted pistachio is nothing short of genius--I am not exaggerating when I say that these are incredibly addictive.

I'd also like to share a word of love for pistachios, in general. I think they're an ideal food to keep on-hand in the event that you need to serve your guests a little nibble before a meal (or late night after cocktails). They require zero preparation, snapping open the shells keeps guests hands occupied and a big bowl of nuts gives you a real sense of abundance. Another thing I love to do with pistachios is de-shell them and put them into salads, as they're a little less expected than a walnut or a almond.
