Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Rating: 4.62 stars
Chocolate and almonds top off a rich buttery toffee. A simple recipe that you could easily remember and whip up any time. I always get compliments and requests for more. Use any type of nut that you like in place of the almonds.

Quick Almond Flour Pancakes

Rating: 4.2 stars
These pancakes are a wonderful substitute for regular pancakes when you are watching your carbs! They are very filling and are on the dense side. This is a basic recipe can be tweaked. Any sweetener can be substituted for the maple syrup. Enjoy!

Nanaimo Bars III

Rating: 4.58 stars
Because it's three layers, this sounds hard but it's worth it. My son is famous for making and taking these in to work. I've heard other names but here in the Northwest everyone knows them as Nanaimo bars. They are sold on British Columbia Ferries and at coffee stands. If you can't find custard powder, I've used instant pudding mix with good results.

Sweet, Salty, Spicy Party Nuts

Rating: 4.78 stars
I find this technique much easier than the stovetop pan method. You'll get beautiful, perfectly frosted nuts that are roasted evenly, with no bitter burned spots.

Candied Almonds

Rating: 4.56 stars
This is a favorite with my father. They taste so good warm! Substitute any type of nuts you prefer.

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Rating: 4.78 stars
My sister and I love something sweet with our coffee in the morning. We created this recipe to make a wholesome breakfast. I generally double the batch and keep them in the freezer. They taste even better frozen (still soft!). Whole grains, fiber, and protein and no butter! Can it really be delicious? Yes! My kids can't keep their fingers out of the batter. I decided to add it to Allrecipes because everyone keeps asking me for the recipe. Enjoy!

Pork and Wild Rice Casserole
Rating: Unrated
This recipe is a delicious use of wild rice. Just be sure to season your ground pork if you don't buy it preseasoned (usually labeled as pork sausage). Fresh Italian sausage can also be used, just cut open the casing. Works great prepared a day ahead and re-heated for 20 minutes at serving time.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Rating: 4.47 stars

This is a traditional Christmas cookie recipe that we have had in our family for years. All I did was change the shape to make them look like fingers for our annual Halloween party. The cookies make a great conversation piece. My guests loved them!
