Honey-roasted peanuts are one of my secret addictions. They’re just salty-sweet enough and have an irresistible crunch. I’ve started using them in everything from salads to chocolate desserts. Consider this pie. I mean, how could you not notice my obsession when you see 2 cups of peanuts piled on top of a chocolate ganache?
This is for those times you urgently need a brownie, but don’t want to make – or, rather, can’t justify making – a whole batch.
Summer is the time for grilling and peaches! This easy dessert is great with a dry pink sparkling rose, such as an inexpensive Segura Viudas.
This light olive oil cake can be served alone or accompanied by pears poached in red wine or brandy-soaked cherries or prunes, but the success of the cake depends on using a top-quality olive oil.
Kelly and David Boudreaux call for a Nature’s Grocer Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free Plain Doughnut to serve as the base, but you can use your favorite gluten-free doughnut mix (or any doughnut mix) if you’re inclined to bake these at home. A cake-style doughnut will best absorb the rum (you could poke a few holes in the doughnut with a toothpick, like you would for a pound cake glaze). Add coconut flakes over the caramel sauce, if you like (it is dessert, right? ). Feel free to “doctor-up” your “Faith Doughnut” any way you like.
My version of the candy classic tastes just enough of delicious bourbon without it feeling like you’ve done a shot when you pop it in your mouth. A little sorghum syrup brings out the earthiness of the pecans and bourbon. For a true indulgence, I like to dip these in milk chocolate, but you can use bittersweet for a more sophisticated edge, or a combo of both.
