It is versatile enough to be a good match for dark, milk and white chocolates, but even though it can pair with a wide range of flavors, I often find that chocolate and orange desserts can be a bit uninspired.

Buddha’s Hand Shortbread

Buddha's Hand Shortbread

Buddha’s hand is an unusual citrus fruit in that it really ... Read More »

Peppermint Brownie Whoopie Pies
