When I fall for a recipe, I fall hard.  Scones, for example… I can’t get enough.  I’ve made countless versions, both savory and sweet.  Muffins, too, have a special place in my heart.  But now, my friends, I have a new obsession: biscotti.

I try to deny the existence of a sweet tooth, but I may have a little one. The fact is that my ideal dessert isn’t overly sugary. I want my treats to feel decadent without actually being decadent. Which may be the best way of looking at biscotti. It’s true that these consist of butter and sugar and eggs, but for the number that it makes, these are actually not all that unhealthy. It’s portion control, though you don’t even realize its being enforced.  If only I could find a cheesecake that did the same thing.

So, yeah, I’m a bit obsessed with these biscotti.  I’d be lying if I told you I only ate one of these a day (it was two… ok three.  Maybe a half, too. Sigh.).   These make for a wonderful breakfast with your morning coffee, a snack after lunch, a nibble before bed.  I swear I have will power (no, I really don’t. None at all actually).  But don’t let this deter you from making them. Just be sure to give at least half away to friends.

    Rosie @ Sweetapolita - These are truly something special, Brian! I agree that biscotti are decadent without being decadent, and I feel that they do make the ultimate gifty baked good. It’s not something you often hear of people making for themselves, so it’s the ultimate treat when they’re homemade. Gorgeous images too, my friend!ReplyCancel

    Cranberry and pistachio are a favorite combonation of mine and I will have to over come my fear of baking and give these a try. The fall weather and my love for good ‘not to decadent’ treats with my coffee are an overwhelmingly good excuse to make these.ReplyCancel

Hi friends! Big news!  Russell, of Chasing Delicious and The Boys’ Club, has just launched an online store called The Sweet Tooth Company and he graciously asked me to sell some of my photography on the site!  Come on over and check out all of the fantastic products, including posters, prints, and t-shirts (which will be up later this week)!  For our grand opening, we’re giving everyone a 10% DISCOUNT this week when you enter the code GRANDOPENING.  Additionally, I want to congratulate Amanda Thompson for being randomly picked as our winner for the Sprouted Kitchen cookbook giveaway!

It may be hard to believe that soup has magical powers, but it does.  A bowl of hearty, homemade soup can do wonders for the soul. I’ve always felt this way.  It started when I was a child.  In our house, Shabbat dinners consistently started with either matzo balls in chicken broth or mushrooms and barley in vegetable stock.  As the soup simmered throughout the day, every room filled with wonderful aromas.  It didn’t matter how cold it was outside or how gloomy the skies were, the smell alone lifted my spirits.

I made a version of that childhood favorite last week.  The recent arrival of fall hit me harder than I expected.  The moment I got a hint of that crisp air, I immediately longed for some comfort.  I missed my parents and my sister. My heart craved a hug.  I went back to our apartment and put up a pot of soup and I stood over it, stirring and tasting, until my soul was soothed and my stomach full.

I’m completely giddy and I can’t wait to tell you why!  It’s not just these salmon burgers, which should be served at every bar in the country.  If they were, I’d be one happy man.  I struggle with bar food.  Where is the pescatarian love? It makes be a little sad when I go out for drinks and everyone’s chowing down on juicy burgers and all I can get is a silly hummus platter.  All you bar-owners out there, take note!  Make this salmon burger and I can guarantee it’ll be a hit.

But that’s not why I’m so excited.  Here’s the big news:  I have the honor of telling all of you, dear readers, about the release of the wonderful new book, The Sprouted Kitchen, from Sara and Hugh Fortes.  I’m not really sure what else I can say except that I adore these two and their site.  I mean, look at it.  It’s hard not to fall in love with every word, photograph, and recipe.  You know that game people play where you’re asked what items you’d want if you were stuck on an island? Just nod yes.  Well, if I were stuck on an island and could only have access to one blog, I’d pick Sprouted Kitchen.  Actually, maybe I wouldn’t.  Because I’d just be very hungry all the time.  So, forget that.

The cookbook is everything I dreamed it would be.  It is full of beautiful writing, Hugh’s stunning pictures, and every dish will leave you drooling.  In fact, when I was searching for a recipe to make to go along with this post, I hemmed and hawed for quite some time.  Like their blog, I was left overwhelmed with inspiration.  But I’m so glad I went ahead and adapted their turkey burger recipe to meet my pescatarian tastes.  It completely flipped my view of what a salmon burger could (and should) taste like.  So, thank you Sara and Hugh!

The publishers of the Sprouted Kitchen cookbook have been generous enough to provide a copy for a giveaway on this blog!  Details on how to enter follow, but if you’re anxious to get your hands on it, head on over to Amazon and buy a copy.

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling us why you’d like to win?

Official Rules: No purchase necessary. Open to US residents only . Giveaway will end on September 30th 2012 at 12:00 pm EST. One winner with a valid entry will be selected at random using random.org. Winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be selected.

    Veronica - Mmmm my mouth is watering and it’s not even noon yet. I’d say this post is a success.

    I love Sprouted Kitchen’s blog and would absolutely love having the book. Whole food cooking is an excellent goal and raises awareness about one is eating and how good food that is good for you can taste.

    At any rate, I look forward to trying the salmon burger recipe!

    Denise - I use to be scared of salmon burgers. I know …. strange. It is because my mom use to use salmon from a can and the texture completely freaked me out. I was 5 or 6 and remember it well. Then a couple years ago, I had one made with fresh salmon (had to eat it as it was being served at a dinner party) and it was out of this world. Cannot wait to try out this recipe, as it looks and sounds amazing.ReplyCancel

    Veronica - As a busy medical student spending 80hrs at the hospital, I have found the weekend time spent in the kitchen as my oasis… It’s my opportunity to unwind and to allow my culinary creativity flourish. I love experimenting and looking to other kitchen enthusiasts for inspiration and guidance. I whole-heartedly believe in having sit-down meals with my family and friends. And no matter how little time I have, I always cook with fresh, wholesome ingredients, from scratch. No frozen meals or take-outs for this med student! :) I read both your and Sprouted Kitchen’s blogs religiously and drool over your photography. Thank you for all the work and passion you put into this blog. It’s truly wonderful. I hope to have the opportunity to bring to life Sprouted Kitchen’s new creations in my own kitchen.

Fortunately, I only tried to cook 2 patties which I used to decorate the buns, and the plate, and the tomato and the lettuce. I have a lot of the salmon mixture left, to which I will certainly add a couple of eggs before grilling. If you have a better solution, please let me know.
