Almonds are a delicious tree nut (they’re technically drupes, but culinarily they are considered nuts) that make a wonderful snack and ingredient to bake with.

Baking Bites for Craftsy: Step-by-Step Palmiers

Palmiers are one of the easiest pastries to make because they require just two ingredients: store-bought puff pastry and sugar.

Bailey’s, Kerrygold and other brands are indulgent cream-based liqueurs that are tinged with Irish whiskey, vanilla, chocolate and other flavors – and the holiday is a welcome excuse to treat myself (and...

If you know the name Kerrygold, it’s probably because you’re familiar with their delicious Irish butters or their tasty Irish cheeses. The dairy company has been making these dairy-based products for decades, but more recently introduced an even more decadent product to its lineup: Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur.
