Amaretto Biscotti

Anytime we need a quick and easy dessert – biscotti are usually one of the first sweet treats I think of to make.  Biscotti are crisp, twice-baked, oblong-shaped cookies or biscuits originating in the city of Prato, which is located in the Tuscany region of Italy. Aside from being very simple to bake, biscotti freeze […]

Chocolate Dipped Almond Fingers

We’ve been sharing lots of savory recipes over the last few weeks here on A Family Feast. So today, we’re changing things up with a delicious sweet treat – these Chocolate Dipped Almond Fingers. My husband Jack first made these cookies a few months ago for our holiday cookie tray, and I loved them so […]


Last month, during our daughter’s April vacation from school, we visited New York City for the weekend with some friends.  (We talked  a little more about our trip here!)  On one of our days in the city, we ate lunch at a fantastic Mexican food truck, not too far from the Brooklyn Bridge. In addition […]

Fruit and Cheese Ball

This Fruit and Cheese Ball is a delicious throwback to the 1970’s, and it’s an easy, sweet, creamy appetizer that both kids and adults love! We came across this recipe a few months ago in my mother’s old recipe box, and as soon as I spotted the handwriting on the recipe card, I immediately thought […]

Lemon Almond Tea Cookies

As much as I love gooey chocolate desserts – more often than not, I tend to gravitate more towards lighter, sweet treats such as these Lemon Almond Tea Cookies. This easy recipe was another discovery we found in my mother’s old recipe box. On the recipe card, my mother wrote “1897” next to the Lemon […]

Coconut Rice

We’re continuing the Asian-inspired theme for one more day with this delicious recipe for Coconut Rice! This easy Coconut Rice is actually one of the dishes we ate for dinner ourselves, along with those fantastic Asian Barbecue Chicken Wings we shared yesterday. This recipe couldn’t be easier to make – and the flavors of the […]

Sicilian Twists (Infasciadedde)

Back a few months over the holidays, we experimented a bit with ‘pasta frolla’ – an Italian cookie dough similar to a shortbread. It’s very easy to make, extremely versatile (it’s great for cookies and tarts) and it is just a wonderful dough to work with! Since then, pasta frolla has become one of our […]

Fresh Apple Torte

This post is sponsored by McCormick. All opinions are 100% mine. Here in New England where we live, apple picking is a must-do activity every fall! It’s a wonderful way to spend time with our family outdoors: enjoying New England’s colorful foliage, going on a hayride out to the fields to pick out a pumpkin, […]

Cranberry Almond Coconut Macaroons

As part of our post today, we are joining together with Frugal Foodie Mama and a group of other wonderful bloggers who are Baking for Kate, an online bake sale to help raise funds to benefit an amazing woman, Kate Crawford, and her family, as Kate battles Stage IV breast cancer.  We’re using our collective […]

Dinner Party Series – Part 4: Almond Orange Cake

We’re wrapping up our Dinner Party Series today with this recipe for Almond Orange Cake.  Our friends Sandi and David ended a perfect meal with this moist and delicious cake infused with almonds and both orange and lemon zest for an intensely good citrus flavor.  And some gorgeous candied orange slices make a beautiful garnish […]
