  1. you are really a just right webmaster. The website
    loading pace is amazing. It kind of feels that you’re doing any distinctive
    trick. Furthermore, The contents are masterpiece. you have performed a wonderful job in this topic!

  2. I’m not entering giveaway, HOWEVER, I want to thank you for these almond flour recipes! We just got some in at work and I’ve been MEANING to make something with it!! The baked chicken with pesto sounds amazing!!
    Oh, and of course the mocha rocks my world! Can’t wait to try it. I didn’t even know 2/16 was NAtional Almond Day.

  3. My favorite way to eat almonds is roasted! I make my own cinnamon sugar almonds by throwing them together with an egg white, cinnamon, brown sugar, and then roasting them until they’re a nice deep brown color and super crunchy. I throw them in my oatmeal in the morning or sometimes I use them to make my own granola.

    I would love to win a box of straws! They’d add some color to my kitchen and they’ll make my drinks look so fun!

  4. These straws are adorable and my kids would be impressed that they are recyclable! Our favorite way to eat almonds is right out of the jar. Such a handy go to snack,

  5. Love this. I just pinned it and have to try it. I’m obsessed with almond milk. I like how you specified non-alkalized cocoa powder.

    We just made a red pepper almond sauce for the cooking class I conducted and I just adored it; sadly I can’t post it because I don’t have any photos so I’ll make it soon. You gotta try the sauce if you love almonds. Thanks for sharing this lovely drink 🙂

  6. A nice warm treat perfect for this time of the year!!I love the cinnamon in there.Makes it even better 🙂
    Love the straws,biodegradble, soy ink and super cute 🙂

  7. my favorite is roasted unsalted almond butter (fresh pressed). 🙂 love putting it in my oats, quinoa, etc. or just eating it by the spoonful. those straws are adorable! so cute.

    and i love the idea of putting cinnamon in coffee. never thought about that before! this is my kind of drink!

  8. shame on kirkland, they should reimburse you. I adore these straws. As much as I love my glass Strawsome straws they aren’t as portable. Loving this recipe too. I love almond extract in smoothies. Enjoy roasting almonds with rosemary and slivered almonds for texture in grains. Off to tweet this.

  9. How cute are those straws?! I usually like to put a little chocolate almond milk in my morning coffee. Your recipe sounds great! I enjoy roasted almonds plain, in salads, or as a protein coating 🙂

  10. I love almonds in salads and also love them dusted with a little cinnamon and brown sugar, browned and toasted in the oven. Almond butter is also a nice treat, but can’t indulge in too often because of my niece and nephew’s severe peanut and tread but allergies.

  11. “These straws are so dang cute, I really want to win a box!” 🙂 I also love almonds in the form of butter! I make almond nut butter on a regular basis…good right out of the bag too but they have to be roasted…I really don’t care for the raw, too chewy.
    I LOVE YOUR DRINKS…THEY are so dang cute and so easy to make,huh?
    Your give a way is a super fun idea, I love it! 🙂

  12. I love using colorful straws especially when I drink smoothies. Kikkerland has some cute designs. Currently we have the red and white peppermint swirl looking ones. I truly love your blog. Great recipes and beautiful photography. Hope to meet you someday!
