Hello Diamond Nuts Fans! Welcome to our blog, In A Nutshell. I’m Lauren, your resident baker, maker and all-around nut enthusiast. If you’re looking for inspiration for a quick weeknight dinner, a crowd-pleasing dessert, or even an adorable way to turn in-shell walnuts into holiday decorations, then you’re in the right place!

Before we jump in, here are a few things you should know about me:

  • Pesto is my favorite food. I make it with walnuts and kale, pine nuts and basil, almond and spinach – any nut and leafy green combo that I can get my hands on
  • Raisins on the other hand are not my favorite. But if you can’t live without ‘em, I promise to look the other way while you throw a handful into the batter
  • I have a trusty kitchen assistant/taste-tester of the four-legged variety named Peanut the Dachshund
  • When I’m not in the kitchen you can find me biking around town in search of inspiration for my next baking or cooking adventure

Each week I’ll share all the nutty things that have been on my mind and hopefully inspire you to get cooking, so be sure to stop by regularly! Of course, if you ever have any questions along the way, or if you just want to say “hi” drop me a line in the comment section below.
