These cookies. They are really going to be the end of me. I have been trying to eat healthy since we got back from our trip. Because as much as I want to believe that gelato three times a day is normal, I know it isn’t. But then I made these cookies, and I can’t stop eating them. Do other people eat three cookies in one sitting?? Let’s go with yes, because these Pistachio Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies are just too good to only have one. They are salty and sweet, soft but still chewy, and just bursting with dark chocolate – cookie perfection….

Happy Friday!!! And welcome to the final day of PUMPKIN WEEK! I hope you enjoyed all the pumpkin goodness this week – I know that I sure enjoyed eating all of it!  If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there is a round-up of all the pumpkin recipes in case you missed any.

I saved the best for last…Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting!!  Pumpkin adds so much flavor and a beautiful color to the light and fluffy buttermilk dough.  Pumpkin pie spice mixed with cinnamon gives the filling a distinct pumpkin-y flavor.  And cream cheese frosting tops it all off. These rolls are absolutely delicious and could not be prettier.  This is what I call a showstopper of a fall breakfast!

Almond Flour Bread

Almond flour gives this loaf of yeast bread a slightly nutty flavor and results in an amazing texture. If you want to try baking with almond flour, this is the perfect recipe!

As you know from my many bread posts, I get really excited about my bread recipes. There is something so satisfying about baking your own loaf of bread. But today’s loaf is very special, and therefore I am even more excited than usual. That’s because it comes from this amazing cookbook, which happens to be written by my lovely aunt, Barbara Bryant, along with Betsy Fentress. Ok yes, I am totally biased on this one, but seriously – it is a gorgeous cookbook that is all about Almonds!  It is full of the interesting history of almonds, beautiful photos, and tons of delicious recipes. I highly recommend checking it out.

I will be trying many recipes from this book (Soba Noodles with Spicy Almond Butter Sauce anyone?) but I knew the first recipe I wanted to try – Almond Flour Bread.

Deli Style Rolls

These deli style rolls are the perfect sandwich roll – they have a substantial crust yet are light and airy on the inside. Just like you would find at a deli!

Deli Style Rolls | chezcateylou.com

It is no secret that I love baking bread. I usually try out a different loaf every weekend that we are in town. But for some reason, I never make rolls. I’m not sure why – they aren’t harder to make than normal bread. I just never think about it. But some sandwiches just call out for a roll. Like pulled pork – definitely need a roll for that! Or an egg sandwich – it just isn’t the same on toast. So I decided that we needed some deli style rolls in our life!…
