Lick the Spoon

candied spiced pecans

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this is The Best Snack I've Ever Eaten.

I like these nuts better than pretzel sticks, popcorn AND cereal.

And, I eat way too much cereal.

These pecans smell like spice cake in the oven and taste even better.

Crunchy, sweet, salty, warmly spiced, with a nice bit of heat from the cayenne...




It's the first David Lebovitz recipe I've tried.

I've dog-eared a few from his Ready for Dessert, but this one just sounded so simple, so yummy.

I've done more than my share of spiced nuts, but they've all been pretty darn disappointing.

When I smelled these baking away, though, I started to think that, maybe, just maybe, my bad spiced nuts streak was over.

The pecans -- they smelled wonderful. 

Like Christmas in my oven, and then some.

deep, dark chocolate shortbread

Crispy. Fudge.

That's what these taste like.

Yeah. I like.

I really haven't been able to keep my hands off of these cookies.

The edges of the shortbread are crispy.

The sugar topping is crispy.

There's a little bit of chew, a bit of buttery softness, a crunch from the pecans.

And one big shot of chocolate.


A whammy of chocolate.

buttermilk biscuits

Good morning!

These are almost perfect.

They're super tender and buttery and so flavorful.

They just need to be bigger.

Like, a lot bigger.

But other than that -- I love these. 

Awesome buttermilk flavor.

Almost fall-apart tender.

And so buttery.

There's a place in North Carolina called Bojangles -- a cajun chicken biscuit chain -- that has these really good, ridiculously buttery biscuits. 

Apparently they smother them in it.

They're so darn good.

And, I mean, if you're going to eat a biscuit, why not go all out?

candy bar cookies

I came up with these because of the pile of Halloween candy the kids dumped out of their little treat bags.

It was big.

A lot of chocolate can be a good thing sometimes.

Just not really for a 2- and 4-year-old.

Or Batman...
