Baked Fig Pops with Blue Cheese and Candied Almonds
"This is a different variation of my cheese tray in a bite — fruit, cheese, nuts in one mouthful — heaven. For slightly heartier fare, throw them on a thin crostini, pushing the figs down slightly so they don’t roll away onto your cocktail party neighbour’s fancy shoes! For a fabulous alternative, feel free to try sliced pears on a crostini instead of figs, as shown in this photo."

California Tempeh Burger
A healthier take on the traditional burger, this tempeh creation is best topped with creamy almond yogurt sauce and served on crusty bread.
Sweet Potato Almond Chipotle Soup
This soup is a perfect balance of sweet from the sweet potato, earthy from the almonds, and heat from the smoky chipotle — and it's good for you, too. It makes a great weekend lunch or light dinner. Serve it with crusty bread and a simple salad or in little sake or espresso cups for a cocktail party.
White Fish Espagnole
After trying this gremolata made from toasted almonds, onions, green peppers, and stewed tomatoes, you'll never think of eating a light, white fish another way again.
Almond Butter Cookies
A whole-wheat and almond butter version of the Chinese cookie classic. These treats are an ideal partner-in-cookie-crime to a cold glass of milk or a cup of afternoon tea.
