Recipe: Beet “Ambrosia”
You know what I love? Being surprised by a familiar ingredient or an old recipe. This beet ambrosia does both. Ambrosia is typically a sweet fruit salad studded with marshmallows and chopped nuts, dressed with a sweet, creamy dressing. Beet ambrosia takes its visual cues from traditional ambrosia, but is decidedly savory. A bite of this beet ambrosia is like a bite of the classic beet and goat cheese salad, but easier to eat.

Recipe: Nutty Banana Sheet Cake
Now here’s a wholesome cake you can feel equally happy about for dessert as you can for breakfast. A fluffy sheet of banana cake is the perfect partner to a mix of crunchy, earthy nuts and seeds. To make this wholesome cake a bit more sweet, we’re finishing it off with a drizzle of bittersweet chocolate. I love the ease of making this cake. Like banana bread, it’s a one-bowl wonder, thanks to the use of oil instead of creamed butter and sugar.

Recipe: Syrian Stuffed Pumpkins
This is one of the two stuffings I created with the mother of the Syrian refugee family we hosted for Canadian Thanksgiving. We found that bringing the foods of two traditions together is more than the delicious dish it creates. It’s a symbol of an intention for harmony and our willingness to find the parts and pieces in our own stories that make room for the parts and pieces in another.

Recipe: Chicken Waldorf Salad
All you have to do to make chicken salad a hundred times more interesting is add in a chopped apple. An apple adds crunch, sweetness, and freshness, and you’ve also taken care of eating a serving of fruit for the day. When apple season hits, make this chicken Waldorf salad your go-to lunch, or leave a batch of this in your fridge so that dinner is waiting for you when you get home.

How To Make Eggplant Noodles
Consider eggplant noodles a short-and-sweet introduction to eggplant. These noodles don’t require a spiralizer, they don’t need to be salted (as some would argue all eggplant does), and they cook quickly. They also utilize one of eggplants often bemoaned qualities — they are incredibly absorbent. These noodles will soak up any sauce they are tossed with, becoming even more flavorful.

Recipe: Carrot Peel Pesto
While it’s not always necessary to peel carrots, there are a handful of instances — like cutting them to eat raw, or grating them for a salad or cake — where you’re better off removing their slightly bitter skin. But that doesn’t mean you should just toss the peels in the trash or compost bin. Think of carrot peels not as waste, but as a whole other ingredient in your kitchen.

Recipe: Upside-Down BBQ Chicken Bowl
Barbecue is a much-loved summer meal in my house, whether it’s a slow cooker full of pulled chicken in sauce, or a slab of ribs from our local BBQ truck — smoky and fatty, leaving drippings down your arm as you gnaw them on the back porch. Pork, chicken, beef — whatever the meat, barbecue is such a treat, and I especially love a good chicken barbecue sandwich topped with crunchy, creamy slaw. But for an everyday meal, I like to flip the bowl and start with the vegetables first.

Justin’s Nut Butters Now Owned by the Same Company as SPAM

That’s right – Justin’s and SPAM are now owned by the same company.

Recipe: The Kitchn Cookbook’s Cold Peanut Sesame Noodles with Pan-Seared Chicken
When I was 17 and an ardent vegetarian (I’ve since recovered), my good friend Allison introduced me to soba noodles. These nutty, chewy, buckwheat strands cooked up faster than pasta and were delicious with a quick sauce of rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and minced ginger. I was doing much of my grocery shopping at Asian markets at the time and buying soba noodles by the armful. But then I found peanut sauce and my soba noodles took on a whole new, far more delicious life.

California’s Pistachio Trees Are “Shooting Blanks” This Year
“Shooting blanks” is not a phrase you usually see associated with nuts, but that’s the phrasing used to refer to pistachio nuts that never produce the meat inside, just hollow shells. And this is a surprisingly widespread problem this year in California. While hollow pistachios aren’t unusual, they usually only occur in about 10 percent of the crop.

5 Times to Splurge and Use Nut Oils
Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest differences. So, the next time you want to treat yourself to a meal or snack that’s just a little more special, consider opting for a flavorful nut oil in place of your regular olive or coconut oil. Nut oils have a flavorful and very distinct taste, along with the ability to really make a dish shine. Whether you go for walnut, hazelnut, pistachio, or almond oil, you really can’t go wrong.

I Tasted Halva for the First Time, and Here’s What I Made with It
I’m not sure when halva first crossed my radar — it might have been mentioned in some of the many food blogs I scan every week, in a food magazine, or on a restaurant menu, but I’ve been wondering what it is for a while. I knew it had sesame in it, and since I love sesame desserts, I put it on my to-try list. I recently was able to get my hands on some, and here’s what I thought of this Middle Eastern confection!

5 Smart Ways to Use Up Leftover Nuts
Whether I buy nuts from the bulk bins or go for the pre-packaged bags, it’s inevitable that I end up with bits and pieces of everything, but never quite enough of one variety to use in a recipe — a few tablespoons of pistachios here, a spoonful of walnuts there, maybe a quarter cup of pecans. My simple (and budget-friendly) solution? Just blend them all together. There are plenty of recipes where a mixture of nuts works just as well, if not better, than a single variety.

What It Takes to Produce One Jar of Peanut Butter
We know all about what is in peanut butter, but how does it get to us as consumers? You can grind your own on the spot at many grocers, but popular commercial brands still line the shelves alongside newer specialty brands. How are they made? Sorry, Virginia, but there isn’t a magical peanut butter fairy. Instead it’s a process that begins with roughly 500 runner peanuts.

Homemade Gift Recipe: Skillet Toffee
When I was a child, there weren’t a lot of sweets in our house, but come Christmastime, little teasing bits of my mom’s holiday toffee would show up in my normally sugar-starved lunch bag during the week before school let out. Then, during our annual Christmas Eve tamale party, huge platters would appear, with piles of the stuff stacked high like poker chips Though I moved across the country almost twenty years ago, she hasn’t missed a single season of toffee.
