Double Nut Baklava

Double Nut Baklava

When I first tried baklava, I knew I had to make a remix of my own. This recipe highlights double nuts: macadamia nuts, and pecans. Sometimes I even switch out the pecans for walnuts. It’s a delicious recipe that is continuously made here at Kathey Jo’s Kitchen. Baklava is one of husband Rob’s favorite deserts, so trust me, this one is a must try!

The flakey pastry is quite simple to make, considering the layering and number of steps. Besides the delicious nuts, you’ll also need a series of flavorful ingredients such as ground allspice, shredded coconuts, brown sugar, and of course, honey! If you are not a huge fan of nuts, or would like to experiment with other fillings, you can also try pistachios.

The filo pastry layers and nuts, are held by syrup or honey...

Bagel French Toast

Bagel French Toast

Who says you should eat breakfast foods only in the morning? Not me! I love breakfast foods at any time of the day, especially toast and bagels. Now imagine combining them into one item—a masterpiece is formed! This bagel French toast is so delicious and totally levels up from simple slices of bread.

When it’s time to grill the bagels, make sure to evenly coat with the egg mixture beforehand. For best results, you should consider soaking for several minutes. After setting the grill for 350 degrees, grill each side for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Remember, based on the thickness of the bagel, it may take a bit longer, so you can always grill until golden brown.

I have to say, I love a sweet breakfast...

Cheese Fondue Dip

Cheese Fondue Dip

One of my favorite snacks is anything paired with this warm cheese fondue dip. It’s a delicious side for a charcuterie board filled with dried meat or even roasted potatoes. A common way this dip is served at Kathey Jo’s Kitchen is with cut up raw vegetables and bite sized French bread. Trust me, if you’ve never had this dip, you definitely need to try it!

Although there are very few steps when it comes to making this tasty dip, it could be a little tricky if it’s not done correctly. The most common mistake is not getting the right consistency. For instance, if the fondue becomes too thick, you’ll want to stir in a small amount of dry white wine or apple juice. The wine does wonders, even preventing the cheese to clump, but also to not become stringy.
