Marcona Almonds

Posted on January 15, 2010

Many of you had questions about Marcona almonds when I posted my recipe for Marcona Almond Mayonnaise, so I thought I would take the time to provide some answers.  Here’s the first question from one of my favorite readers:

Is there a difference in taste or texture between Marcona almonds & regular almonds?  I know the Marcona almonds are from Spain so maybe (and hopefully) these are truly raw almonds (they’re not so obsessed with pasteurization in Europe).

Marcona Almond Mayonnaise

This vegan mayonnaise has quickly become a family favorite.  I based the idea on a recipe I found in an old issue of Martha Stewart Living.  I happened upon an interesting recipe for a peanut salad dressing, made several adaptations until I ended up (somewhat accidentally) with this scrumptious gluten free, egg-free vegan mayo which is delicious on my Kaleslaw.

Summer Squash Salad

Posted on August 10, 2009

My husband and I guzzled this summer squash salad last night at dinner.  We had a massive feast of vegetables and salmon (the boys picked at dinner, though did just fine all in all).  Along with the salad, we grilled the salmon, eggplant, red peppers and broccoli.  Fresh fruit for dessert –cherries, apricots and strawberries.

It was a lot of fun.  Making it even better was the fact that my husband and I went grocery shopping together in the afternoon (love […]
