Whole Foods has this amazing goat cheese, cranberry, pecan salad that I’m obsessed with. It’s light but still decadent tasting – all sweet and savory and creamy. If it weren’t so overpriced, I would probably eat it all day, every day.

In a fit of stress baking thanks to the longest and worst week so far of 2013 (and it’s just three weeks in, which does not bode well for the rest of the year), I turned my freshly made rosemary walnut butter into cookies.

I’m kind of over peanut butter. That’s right, I said it. Yes, it’s delicious, but I think I’m going to give it a rest for now and explore all the other options for nut butters – specifically walnuts.

Of all the nuts, I feel like walnuts kind of get shafted. Almonds are great for snacking, peanuts are for peanut butter, pecans are kind of fancy, and walnuts are kind of the middle child that everyone forgets about. They’re delicious and healthy in their own right, but I feel like they get overshadowed by all the other types of nuts out there.

Don’t worry, walnuts. love you. I love you so much I’ll toast you in the oven and grind you up into a paste. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. It’s funny how quickly sentiments can descend into serial killer territory.
