NaturAlmond Handcrafted Almond Butter

NaturAlmond Hand Crafted Almond Butter (widely available here and here) Let me begin by saying that while I’m on my second jar of this almond butter, I should be on my fourth… or fifth. It’s been out of stock at my usual grocery store for far too long! I jumped up [...]

Hub and I had the best creamy smoothies at The Umstead a couple years ago, and I lucked up on making a surprisingly similar one while I was experimenting with smoothie recipes this past weekend. Remember that scene in The Best Man when Robin (a caterer, I think) was all excited [...]
