Simple Twists For Cooking With Nuts From Chef Alex Guarnaschelli and Fisher Nuts + HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY!!!



I have to say that this time of year is my favorite time of year. First Halloween, then Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Years. I love it so much because that means I get to start cooking up some of my favorite recipes and discover new ones.

I love to cook and bake and I love cooking and baking with nuts! And Fisher Nuts are part of my holidays this year. Fisher Nuts are delicious and easy to use in any holiday recipe.

This year Fisher Nuts is teaming up with Food Network Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, a regular judge on Chopped, to make holiday cooking a bit easier and to offer you  some simple twists for cooking with nuts during the holidays.

I checked out some of Alex's recipes on the Fisher Nuts website and found quite a few that I want to try. One recipe I am going to make is the Stuffed White Mushrooms with Pecans. I love stuffed mushrooms but have never tried them with nuts! But these look delish. Check out the recipe below:





I cannot wait to try this recipe for one of my holiday appetizers! It looks delicious. Plus, if it is a Chef Alex recipe then I bet it is so yummy!!
