Daring Cooks go Nuts! Grilled Kabobs with Cashew Butter Sauce

July 13, 2010

I should title this post, “the cursed food processors,” but then you wouldn’t get to know what I was making!  This month’s Daring Cook’s challenge was to make a nut butter and use it in a dish.  Well, nut butters mean one needs a food processor.  I thought this would be a great challenge to […]


Marinated Pan-Fried Salmon
