Superior Nut Company Recipes


I recently had the pleasure of tasting a wide variety of the delicious nuts and nut butters from the Superior Nut Company, who was kind enough to send me complimentary samples to use for recipe testing with my clients.  Needless to say, the Superior Nut Company products were quite impressive and I especially loved the pistachio nut butter…how delicious does that sound?  Here are a few of my tested recipes that I created thanks to the Superior Nut Company.
