Easy & Delicious Recipes with Hazelnuts from My Childhood
When I moved to the US, I was very surprised that hazelnuts aren’t the most popular nut. After all, in Eastern Europe where I’m from, hazelnuts are some of the most used nuts when it comes to cooking, so I just naturally assumed it would be the case everywhere else. You could find hazelnut trees growing pretty much everywhere in parks and forests, and every kid I know grew up with hazelnut cookies on the table for the holidays. While living in the US, I learned to love the taste of peanuts and pecans that dominate the snack shelves, but I still missed the flavors of my childhood. That’s why I was so excited when NOW started selling their very own Dry Roasted & Unsalted Hazelnuts ($8.79)! When I got my first three bags in the mail, I immediately dug into one of them and quickly finished it over the course of the week. Tastes just like home! And that’s when I had the idea to share a few tasty hazelnut recipes with you that I loved growing up, with some modifications for ingredients that can be more easily found in the US. View Post
