Christmas and baking go hand in hand, don’t they? During the last few weeks before Christmas, my baking really kicks into high gear. Last year, while making my microwaved peanut brittle, I decided to add some flavors to make it extra Christmasy.
Fall is my favorite season for many reasons; cooler weather, leaves changing colors, decorating for Halloween, pumpkin spice lattes, and baking lots of yummy food! Fall is also the time of year I scour the grocery stores for quince, the main ingredient in membrillo.
Fig newtons are one of my favorite Fall treats. I always have plenty of fig preserves in the Fall, thanks to my beautiful fig tree. If you like store-bought fig newtons, you will love this homemade version!
Lately I’ve been snacking on dry roasted almonds in an effort to eat healthier. Like anything else, too much of a good thing can eventually get boring. In an effort to spice things up, I came up with this spiced almonds recipe.
