These are a wonderful, classic Italian crunchy cookie, that is great for anyone who is gluten- or wheat-free! As these sit, they get crunchy throughout. Delicious with any fruit dessert, paired with an ice cream sundae, or on their own with a strong espresso!

17.1 grams of fiber per 92 calories - need I say more! great to have on hand. I freeze in little containers so I always have a satisfying thing to dunk my veggies in. Also works with roast type dinners. A little smear as a sauce works brilliantly. Simple. Lovely. Pack with nutrients that will tame that hungry beast.

Italian traditional Christmas cookie, round, chocolate and spicy. The name translates literally to “Meatball Cookies”! A nice change from some of the sweeter treats out there.Italian traditional Christmas cookie, round, chocolate and spicy. The name translates literally to “Meatball Cookies”!

These are rich tasting and are very crisp and crunchy which, of course, is what biscotti are all about. You can vary how crunchy these cookies are by how long you leave them in the oven during second baking.

This pesto is super-quick to make and is absolutely delicious. Rich in MUFAs, the pesto can be eaten on whole grain crackers, over pasta, or with crudites.

A filling and frosting recipe I devised for some Valentines day cookies. Works equally well as a doughnut filling!
