As soon as those the familiar bells from the ice cream truck started ringing, it was like time stood still, and all was right with the world. At least that’s what it seemed like when I was a kid, and I was eating my beloved toasted almond ice cream bars.
I’ve been a macadamia nut fiend lately. I can’t seem to get enough of them, but that doesn’t bode too well for my pocketbook. Buttery rich macadamia nuts may be one of the most expensive nuts in the marketplace. That said, in my mind, they’re also the most flavorful! Sorry, pocketbook! 😉
While this dish of Buttery Gluten Free Macadamia Nut Chicken Thighs may not be something you make and serve on a weekly basis, but for a special occasion, or as a dinnertime treat from time to time I hope you’ll add this dish to your recipe repertoire. I trust you’ll love it just as much as we do!
I also double dog dare you to take the Gluten Free Tropical Banana Bread challenge. After your first bite, if you’re not convinced that this is the best banana bread you’ve ever eaten, you can bring it to my house and I’ll take it off your hands and eat it for you! LOL
No Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles also are perfect for gift giving. Think Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in particular.
And don’t forget to get the kids busy in the kitchen with you when you’re making these. Since these Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles are basically a “dump” recipe, the kiddos will have a whole lot of fun dumping and mixing all the ingredients!
Sometimes the best recipes (just like inventions) come out of necessity. So it is with this recipe for Double Chocolate Graham Cracker Toffee. Since I’d had extra chocolate graham crackers left over from another recipe I’d completed, I wanted to use them up quickly before they got lost in the back of the pantry, which happens in my Kudos Kitchen more times than I care to admit.
Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?
The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.
I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!
If you’re looking for a fall salad with all the colors of fall and can be eaten as a main course or side dish, then look no further!
I made this chopped fall fruit & vegetable salad to bring to a dinner party a couple of weeks ago, and it was such a hit that I was asked to blog about the recipe as soon as possible!
I had a blast making this video even though I was really nervous going live. Luckily for me, I had my husband close by to help lend me the moral support I needed, and so I felt more comfortable in front of the camera.
