Honey Roasted Peanut and Dark Chocolate Biscotti

Honey Roasted Peanut and Dark Chocolate Biscotti

I think of honey roasted peanuts as a snack food, not really as an ingredient to bake with. There are only a couple of recipes that I regularly use them in and all of those involve quite a lot of peanut butter, as well. But I do use spiced and candied nuts in recipes where I’m looking to add an extra layer of flavor along ... Read More »

Triple Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Triple Chocolate Chip Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

I often have a handful of chocolate chips left at the bottom of the bag after baking. Sometimes I’m only making a half batch of a recipe, other times the recipe I’m making simply doesn’t call for a whole 10-, 12- or 16-oz of chocolate chips. Rather than keeping a half dozen partially-empty bags in my pantry, I combine the chips into one big bag ... Read More »
