We’re talking all things pistachio cake today! It’s a really simple cake batter made with ground pistachios, which give a nice, nutty flavor. Baked until golden, soft, and slightly dense. Topped with a creamy whipped honey mascarpone, only slightly sweet, and completely delicious.
I’ve been loving the combo of dark chocolate and nuts, so I wanted to create something that incorporates them both. There’s just something about creamy, smooth chocolate with a little nutty crunch. Instead of making a traditional cookie, I’m keeping it on the light side. Meringue basically consists of egg whites that are beaten until thick. There’s so much you can do with meringue, but I like to just dollop little mounds onto a baking sheet and bake them until crisp. A perfect, somewhat lighter treat if you are craving something sweet.
A beautiful, hearty chicken recipe to transition us into fall: seared chicken with figs, pistachio yogurt, and a sweet port sauce. It’s healthy and full of lots of flavor. Can’t wait for you to try this.
