Aside from a quick no bake dessert, bar cookies are my favorite treats to serve. They go together in a snap, and you have usually 25 or 30 servings per recipe. Add these to the other Desserts for Picnics, Potlucks and Memorial Day celebration, that I shared and you have quite the long list of treats to choose from.

Did you know that baking is just one of the very many ways to use nuts? Food Network Chef Alex Guarnaschelli shares tips on cooking with nuts. One of the tips that I had never thought of was to upgrade your spice rub; next time you’re cooking meat, add some ground nuts to your spice rub. The nuts can mellow some of the heat from the spice and add needed richness to the mix.
