Book Review: Almond Inspiration by Almond Board of California


We've all been told time and again that almonds are good for our hearts. But aside from eating a handful of almonds as a snack or swapping regular milk or peanut butter for the almond varieties, how else can a person eat more almonds? The answer lies in the cookbook Almond Inspiration.

Almond Inspiration was distributed by the Almond Board of California, no doubt in response to the questions posed above by many people who want to include almonds in their heart healthy diets. Even though they are described as having a “mild flavor and buttery crunch that intensifies with roasting”, many of us don't really know what to prepare with these versatile nuts. This cookbook offers suggestions for everything from snacks, to dinner entrees, to desserts. Those who are hosting a brunch may want to whip up a batch of Almond-Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for guests. If you are wanting to make a dinner that is sure to impress everyone in the house, try some Almond-Crusted Pork with Quick Cabbage and Pears. And if you want to take the chill out of a nippy spring evening, this book has you covered with a recipe for an ultimate, decadent Almond Toddy. The cookbook is a small one, but one that definitely caters to all tastes in a way that will leave you ready to add more almonds into your weekly meal planning.

It turns out that the possibilities for almonds are endless. All it takes is a little imagination and Almond Inspiration. Find yours at The Karen Yontz Center today.
