There are many amazing nut recipes and we decided it would be the ideal theme for this week's SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with nut recipes and here are some of the highlights:

  • Christina Lakey of Food Apparel shared with us her recipe for almond pound cake topped with strawberries and lemon syrup. Lakey is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
  • PJ Binns of Recipes I Live By combine pistachios and salmon to create a recipe for maple-pistachio crusted salmon. Binns is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
  • The winner this week is Jess Novak, the Drink Editor at The Daily Meal. Novak created a Thai-inspired noddle dish with chicken, vegetables, and peanuts.

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
