Kick those mayonnaise-based dips to the curb this holiday season and serve my delicious Creamy Cannellini Dip for your get-togethers and parties.
I have always been a “do it yourself” kind of gal. If I can make it myself then I will. Store-bought versions of Chocolate Hazelnut Spread just can’t compete with the homemade kind. Spread it on everything from toast and pretzels to banana pieces and shortbread cookies.
I adore fresh fava beans as they have an extraordinary flavor like no other bean. These early spring beans are small and tender, and are a delicacy in soups, salads, and pastas. Fava beans require a bit of extra effort to shell and peel before cooking, but believe me they are worth it. First they must be stripped from the large green spongy pods, and then each bean needs to be peeled to remove the skin.
