Just Add Chocolate. One Way to Fix Burnt Almond Butter.

Just Add Chocolate. One Way to Fix Burnt Almond Butter. Yes, I’m still on a butter kick. Except today instead of dairy spread I’m on to nut butters. Almond butter in particular. First off, did you know that you need nothing more than 1200 watts of power and a handful of almonds to make almond butter? And no, I’m not exaggerating about the watts.

How to Make Honey Mustard Sauce

How to Make Honey Mustard Sauce Honey mustard sauce was one of the first dipping sauces I learned to master. A friend and I created dozens of versions before finally settling on our favorite combination of sweet, tangy, and salty. Honey mustard sauce deserves sweet potato fries.
