These hazlenut biscotti have a warm, complex flavour with a lighter texture than my usual biscotti. They have a hint of cinnamon but if you want a spicier flavour just add more spice, perhaps with mixed spice or ginger as well as the cinnamon. If you like an iced biscotti, making a glace icing with icing sugar and ginger wine would work well.
I have a new addiction. It happens to be to these Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds.
I…I….I…..just don’t know what to say. They are perfectly crunchy, pleasantly pumpkin-spiced, and they have a great balance between salty and sweet.
These almonds are subtle. They don’t walk into a room and yell obnoxious things, but rather they are comforting and pleasant to be around. This is why I have been keeping a little jar of them with me at all times. Read More »
I ate a lot this weekend. Way too much actually…in a good way.
For my Dad’s birthday dinner, my mom and I made Ina Garten’s God-sent Truffled Macaroni & Cheese. Despite the loan she had to take out to buy the truffle butter and exotic mushrooms, it was by far the best mac n’ cheese ever.
Let’s just say, it’s going to be rough getting used to plain ‘ol mac n’ cheese after that eye opening experience.
Now, I’m not advocating going into debt over truffle butter, but if anything is worth over spending, this recipe is it.
We also had some extremely gourmet rib eye. Coated with McCormicks grill seasoning, seared on the charcoal barbeque, and finished off with Read More »
Macaroni and cheese is a great comfort food. When I eat it, I remember those days when my mom would surprise us with her baked macaroni and cheese. This wasn’t just any macaroni and cheese, this was the real deal, made from scratch!
After starting the gluten-free diet, pasta dishes were a little tougher to make. Some pastas don’t hold up well to being cooked in boiling water and then baked. I have found that Read More »

Since I have this brand new bag of blanched almond flour that Honeyville sent me burning a hole in my pantry, I decided to try one of the savory recipes from Elana Amsterdam’s book. My kids love Cheddar Bunnies and Goldfish snack crackers, so I made these cheddar cheese crackers, hoping they’d be something we could all enjoy. I’d never attempted homemade crackers before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy they were.
For the cheddar cheese crackers, you’ll need:
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
¼ tsp sea salt
½ baking soda
1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons coconut oil (original recipe calles for grapeseed oil) Read More »
(My monster fudgesicle – gluten and dairy free! Happy Summer)
I’m always up for making things at home (beef jerky, granola bars, ice tea, etc.). I know there is convenience in buying many of these things, but I rather enjoy making things at home. One it’s a challenge for me, two I know exactly what is going into my food. I love making gallons of ice tea at home because I can control the amount of sugar (or honey, or agave) that goes into my tea. It is truly amazing how much can be found in a gallon of store-bought ice tea.
We don’t buy much ice cream at the store and I don’t ever make it only because I do not have an ice cream maker. Oh, how I wish I had one. Instead I make pops. We bought two packages of Monster Popsicle Molds (I found mine at Marshall’s/T.J. Maxx) which can be purchased from Read More »

What makes these gluten-free cookies so good? They are moist and delicious and taste like brownies! But what really sets this recipe apart is the small amount of flour, sugar and butter called for, especially compared to most cookie recipes.
Based on a recipe for “Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt” from Ghirardelli Chocolates, our recipe calls for a healthy measure of chopped walnuts and we’ve omitted the additional sea salt called for in Ghirardelli’s original recipe.
After baking be sure to let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for at least 10 minutes before using a spatula to remove them to a wire rack. Place the cooled cookies in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for an extra chewy brownie-like texture and Read More »
