what is this exactly and is there any substitutes for pine nuts?

marjoram is a form of sweet oregano
you can substitute macademias or cashews for pine nuts, depending on the recipe. Well, actually most nut and seeds are interchangeable, but if a recipe calls for pine nuts, it's usually because of the piney flavor, and the super high oil content. so I don't usually substitute them.

here, I cut and pasted this hope it's helpful...
Marjoram is the dried leaves and floral parts of the herb Origanium hortensis. Most scientists consider Marjoram to be a species of Oregano. The light grayish-green leaves of Marjoram have a sweeter and more delicate flavor than Oregano.
Flavor & Aroma:
Minty, aromatic and slightly bitter
Marjoram is pleasantly aromatic and has a distictively minty-sweet flavor with slightly bitter undertones.
Marjoram may be used in (*dishes similar to - sausages, lamb, beef, pork, chicken, fish,) tomato dishes, stuffings, breads, salad dressings, and chowders. Marjoram is used in Italian, French, North African, Middle Eastern, and American cuisines and spice blends such as bouquet garni, fines herbes, and (*dish similar to- sausage) and pickle blends.
Pine nuts substitutes... um cashews, macadamia nuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds??? depends on your taste and what you are making I suppose...
